    • Iglesias allowed a solo home run Sunday but ultimately nailed down the win for his 28th save of the season. The 27-year-old ended the year on a bit of a slide -- he allowed at least one run in each of his final four appearances (six runs total). However, the season on the whole was an unqualified success, with Iglesias posting a 2.49 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 92:27 K:BB while going 28-for-30 in save situations. The Reds likely will be a losing team again next year, but Iglesias established himself as an upper-tier closer this season and will likely be a hot commodity in fantasy drafts next spring.

    • Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Struggles in non-save spot
      By RotoWire Staff

      Iglesias allowed two runs on three hits while striking out two batters during Thursday's loss to St. Louis. Cincinnati was a run behind when Iglesias entered Thursday's game, and it was an uncharacteristic outing from the righty. He's locked into the closer role and boasts a high-end 2.19 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 11.2 K/9 to go along with his 27 saves this season. It is worth noting that he's allowed three runs through his past two appearances, though.

    • Iglesias allowed one run on one hit and one walk while striking out three across 1.2 innings to earn his 27th save Friday against the Pirates. Iglesias was protecting a three-run lead, and the run he allowed made little difference, as he nailed down the home victory. With a 1.98 ERA, he continues to be an elite fantasy option.

    • Iglesias cruised through the final two innings of Tuesday's win over Milwaukee, striking out a pair en route to his 25th save. This game ended up as a 9-3 rout, but it was a different story when Iglesias took the mound in the eighth -- the Brewers already had two men in and two men on, having narrowed Cincinnati's lead from 7-1 to 7-3 without recording an out. Iglesias promptly pumped the brakes on that rally and cruised to his first save in almost two weeks; the Reds haven't been giving him many opportunities lately.

    • Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Locks down 24th save Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Iglesias picked up his 24th save Thursday against the Cubs after allowing one hit while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning. It didn't look like Iglesias was going to get a chance in this one, but Pedro Strop's eighth-inning meltdown allowed Cincinnati to turn a 2-1 deficit into a 4-2 lead. Iglesias faced the minimum three batters, as his lone baserunner allowed was caught stealing second.
