  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Tallies 17th save

    Iglesias allowed a walk but retired the final two batters of the game to earn the save in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

    Iglesias was called upon to protect a four-run lead with runners on first and second, which he did successfully to record his 17th save of the season and first since joining Atlanta. Kenley Jansen was unavailable after earning the save in the first game of the twin bill, and Kirby Yates allowed two of the first three batters he faced to reach base prior to giving way to Iglesias. Since July 14, Iglesias has turned in scoreless efforts in 10 of his 11 appearances. Overall, he has a 3.70 ERA with a 55:10 K:BB across 41.1 innings on the campaign.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Added by Atlanta

    Atlanta acquired Iglesias from the Angels on Tuesday in exchange for pitchers Jesse Chavez and Tucker Davidson, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    This trade wasn't announced until several minutes after the trade deadline passed, but the two sides must have completed the proper paperwork beforehand, and Iglesias will move forward with Atlanta. Iglesias saved 50 games for the Angels since the start of 2021, but since he's joining a team with an established closer in Kenley Jansen, Iglesias will presumably work in a setup role with his new squad and see his fantasy value take a big hit as a result.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Navigates trouble for save

    Iglesias earned the save in Saturday's 9-7 win over the Rangers, striking out one and allowing a hit and a walk in one scoreless inning.

    Iglesias went a month between save conversions, as his last was June 29. He had a spotty stretch with a blown save and two losses in mid-July, but he's settled down with no runs allowed in his last four appearances spanning four frames. The Angels' free fall in the standings has seen them win just six times in July, which has undoubtedly limited Iglesias' high-leverage opportunities. He owns a 4.11 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 48:9 K:BB across 35 innings while converting 16 of 19 save chances this year.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Velocity down again in loss

    Iglesias (2-6) took the loss against Houston on Tuesday, allowing one run on two hits and two walks while striking out one over one inning. His velocity has been down recently, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran closer was brought in with the score tied in the top of the ninth inning. He immediately found himself in trouble, allowing a walk and a single to the first two batters he faced. Kyle Tucker followed with a run-scoring double, and though the Astros were unable to tally any more runs in the frame, the damage was enough to send Iglesias to his sixth loss of the campaign. This was the third straight outing in which Iglesias has given up at least one run, and he is 0-2 with a blown save and a 2:3 K:BB across 2.2 innings over that span. Manager Phil Nevin acknowledged that Iglesias' recent velocity drop is "a little bit of a concern," though Nevin also noted that Iglesias will remain the closer, per Blum.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Blows save against Orioles

    Iglesias (2-5) allowed three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss in Friday's game against the Orioles.

    Iglesias was called upon to preserve a two-run lead Friday, and he retired the first two batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning. However, he allowed the next three batters to record hits and was ultimately charged with his first blown save since June 5. The right-hander served a one-game suspension Sunday against the Astros and has given up four runs in 1.2 innings over two appearances since returning to the field.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Serving suspension Sunday

    Iglesias' suspension was reduced to one game and he will serve it during Sunday's matchup with the Astros, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    Upon appeal, Major League Baseball shaved Iglesias' suspension in half. Iglesias was disciplined for his role in last weekend's brawl between the Angels and Mariners. The Angels do not have a ton of interesting alternatives should a save situation come up Sunday; Jose Quijada and Aaron Loup may be in the mix.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Notches save Wednesday

    Iglesias earned a save against the White Sox on Wednesday, pitching a scoreless inning during which he walked one batter and struck out two.

    Iglesias inherited a three-run, ninth-inning lead and was able to close things out despite issuing a two-out walk. This was his fourth straight successful save conversion after giving up three runs to blow a save against the Phillies on June 5. Since that poor outing, Iglesias has allowed only one run while posting a 15:1 K:BB over nine outings covering nine innings.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Secures 14th save

    Iglesias earned a save against the White Sox on Monday, pitching a perfect ninth inning and striking out one batter.

    Before the contest, Iglesias was handed a two-game suspension for his role in Sunday's brawl with Seattle, but he decided to file an appeal and was thus able to pitch in the game. He entered with the Angels clinging to a one-run lead in the ninth inning and retired the side in order on just 11 pitches. It was the fifth straight scoreless outing for the veteran closer, and he hasn't allowed any hits or walks while striking out nine over five innings during that span.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Handed two-game suspenesion

    Iglesias has been suspended two games for his actions in Sunday's brawl with the Mariners, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

    Iglesias was among seven players to be suspended for the brawl. He appears to be appealing the ban, so he should be available for Monday's game against the White Sox and until a final ruling is delivered.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Snags win in Game 1

    Iglesias (2-4) earned the win in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Mariners. He struck out two in a perfect inning.

    Iglesias was tasked with keeping the game tied in the ninth inning, and he did just that. Mike Trout hit a two-run blast in the 10th to put the Angels ahead, and Iglesias came away with his second win of the year when Jose Quijada converted the save. As the Angels' main closer this year, Iglesias is 13-for-15 in save chances with a 4.24 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 34:4 K:BB through 23.1 innings. Archie Bradley, who was charged with a blown save in the matinee Saturday, pitched a clean inning in the nightcap for a save as the Angels swept the doubleheader.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Strikes out side for save

    Iglesias struck out three in a perfect inning to earn the save in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Mariners.

    Iglesias threw 11 of 13 pitches for strikes to easily protect a three-run lead. It's been a bit of a rough June for the Angels' closer, who has allowed four runs and six hits with seven strikeouts through 5.1 innings in five appearances this month. He's converted 13 of 15 save chances this year while posting a 4.43 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 32:4 K:BB across 22.1 innings, and he's added two blown saves and a 1-4 record.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Secures save Thursday

    Iglesias pitched a perfect ninth inning against the Red Sox on Thursday, striking out two to earn a save.

    Iglesias was tasked with closing out the contest as the Angels sought to snap a franchise record 14-game losing streak, and he succeeded by retiring all three batters he faced. The veteran closer had only one save opportunity during the stretch of team losses, so his job security was never in question. Iglesias has racked up 12 saves on the campaign while posting a 4.43 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 28:4 K:BB across 20.1 innings.

  • Angels' Raisel Iglesias: Handed fourth loss

    Iglesias (1-4) allowed three runs on three over 1.1 innings against the Phillies on Sunday. He struck out one, blew the save and was handed a loss.

    Iglesias entered the game in the eighth inning with the bases loaded and coughed up a game-tying grand slam to Bryce Harper. In the ninth, he put two runners on base before Jimmy Herget allowed a walkoff homer off the bat of Bryson Stott. Iglesias was charged with his fourth loss of the year (all since May 14) while his ERA jumped to 4.91 through 18.1 innings.
