Raisel Iglesias secures third save Thursday

Raisel Iglesias picked up his third save on Thursday in the Reds' 4-1 win over the Padres on Thursday. He struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning.

Fantasy Impact

This was a nice bounce back after Iglesias served up a walk-off home run in his previous outing. It's been a rough start to the year, but the right-hander lowered his ERA to 5.87 after this game. Iglesias should come around, and it's not like the Reds have anyone to push him for save opportunities in their bullpen anyway.

Raisel Iglesias serves up walk-off home run Monday

Raisel Iglesias blew the save and fell to 0-3 after serving up a two-run, walk-off home run to Joc Pederson in the Reds' 4-3 loss to the Dodgers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Iglesias walked the first batter he faced and failed to record an out before giving up the home run. It's been a tough start to the season for Iglesias, who's now been hung with three loses and his first blown save after this game. He's still the Reds' best reliever, but he's going through a rough patch right now.

Raisel Iglesias secures second save Saturday

Raisel Iglesias pitched a scoreless ninth inning for his second save of the year in the Reds' 5-2 win over the Cardinals on Saturday. He allowed one hit, one walk, and had one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Iglesias now has a save in back-to-back appearances after allowing a run to score in his first three appearances of the year. The rocky start appears to be over for Iglesias, and even if he isn't used as a traditional closer in Cincinnati, he should get a healthy amount of save chances and is the best reliever to own on this team by a mile.

Raisel Iglesias locks down first save Wednesday

Raisel Iglesias pitched a perfect ninth inning and struck out the side for his first save of 2019 on Wednesday in the Reds' 2-1 win over the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

Iglesias was used as a traditional closer in this one after being used more in a fireman role over the first week and a half of the season. That role hadn't worked well for Iglesias, as he carried a 5.79 ERA into this game, albeit it only in 4.2 innings. Even if Iglesias isn't a traditional closer he is the best reliever to own in Cincinnati.

Raisel Iglesias takes another loss in extra innings Saturday

Raisel Iglesias took the loss after allowing a walk-off double in the Reds' 6-5 extra innings loss to the Pirates on Satuday. He allowed one run on three hits and struck out three over 2.1 innings.

Fantasy Impact

Manager David Bell asked a lot of Iglesias in this one, and the right-hander was out of gas towards the end. He ended up throwing 34 pitches before surrendering the winning run. Iglesias is now 0-2 on the year with a 5.79 ERA and zero saves in zero chances. It's early, but one has to wonder whether the Reds are reconsidering how to use their best reliever.
