RP - LAA
Expert NoteView More Notes
Iglesias bounced back from a sub-par 2019 to post an excellent 2020 season, with a 2.74 ERA, a 0.91 WHIP, and the lowest walk rate of his career. He'll now move to the Angels where he'll keep his role as a closer. Iglesias's numbers should be solid as usual, and his precise value should hinge on whether the Angels use him in more of a multi-inning role like the Reds historically did (which limited Iglesias's save totals), or deploy him as a more traditional ninth-inning option. Either way, Iglesias will be the Angels' stopper, and hence, should be drafted as a strong top-10 RP option.

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.
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.
