Raisel Iglesias traded to Angels

The Reds traded RP Raisel Iglesias to the Angels in exchange for Noe Ramirez and a player to be named later.

Fantasy Impact

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 picks up fourth win of the season Sunday

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.
