RP - LAA
The Reds traded RP Raisel Iglesias to the Angels in exchange for Noe Ramirez and a player to be named later.
That's quite an uninspiring return for a valuable reliever. Iglesias is owed $9.125 million in the final year of his contract in 2021, so this is clearly a salary dump by Cincinnati. The 30-year-old Iglesias posted a 2.74 ERA with eight saves during the shortened 2020 campaign. He'll likely open the 2021 season as the Angels' primary closer, which makes him a top-12 reliever in fantasy drafts as of now.
Raisel Iglesias (4-3) allowed one run (zero earned) on one hit and no walks while striking out three over one 1/3 innings in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Twins. He picked up his fourth win of the season.
Iglesias recorded the final four outs and picked up the win after the Reds tacked on three runs in 10th inning. He ended the regular season on fire, striking out 12 over his last eight scoreless 2/3 innings. The Reds traded for Archie Bradley during the MLB trade deadline, but the team continued to use Iglesias in closing situations. He finishes 2020 with a (4-3) record along with a 2.74 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 31:5 K:BB over 23 innings.
Raisel Iglesias allowed one hit while striking out two over a scoreless inning to earn a hold in Friday's 7-2 win over the Twins.
Iglesias entered the eighth inning to preserve a 4-2 lead. He struck out two and retired the side to earn his second hold of the year. After a rocky start, Iglesias continues to be a top closing option in 2020. The right-hander owns a 2.91 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 28:5 K:BB over 21 2/3 innings in 2020.
Raisel Iglesias struck out one over a perfect inning to earn the save in Wednesday's 1-0 win over the Pirates.
Iglesias needed just seven pitches to record the final three outs in Wednesday' win. He has now converted six of his last seven save opportunities. Iglesias owns a 3.32 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 25 strikeouts over 19 innings in 2020.
Raisel Iglesias (3-3) struck out two over 2/3 innings to earn the win in Game 1 of Monday's doubleheader against the Cardinals.
