Player Outlook
Had Raisel Iglesias not missed the first month of the season with a right shoulder strain, he may have challenged for the National League lead in saves. He finished with 33 (T-8th in the league), which was still an impressive total given the missed time. The Cuban native also had no trouble stepping right back into closing duties after after pitching in a setup role for Atlanta during the second-half of 2022. Performance-wise, Iglesias was consistent as ever, though his WHIP did suffer with an elevated BABIP. A pitch mix adjustment saw him throw his changeup as his primary for the first time in his career. He increased his usage of the pitch by +11.3%, which makes sense given it's his best offering besides his slider. On the flip side, Iglesias' fastball (.327 BAA) and sinker got crushed (.519 BAA) last season. If that trend continues, it will be interesting to see if the veteran closer scales back on those pitches. Iglesias is a top 5 closer option again for 2024.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Escapes with second save

    Iglesias gave up two runs on three hits and struck out one in the ninth inning Tuesday to record his second save of the season in a 6-5 win over the Mets. The right-hander needed every bit of the three-run lead he was called in to protect, as Iglesias gave up back-to-back hits to lead off the ninth and then watched both runners come home on successive groundouts to second base. Nevertheless, the Atlanta closer kept his focus and fanned Pete Alonso to end the game. Iglesias hasn't blown a save yet in 2024; however, his 4.50 ERA and 2:0 K:BB through four innings reflect a slow start for the dominant reliever, who hasn't posted an ERA above 2.75 since 2019 or a strikeout rate below 29.4 percent since 2018.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Records first save of season

    Iglesias didn't allow a hit or a walk in a scoreless inning Saturday to notch his first save of the season in a 9-8 win over the Diamondbacks. Iglesias put the tying run on with one out when he hit Eugenio Suarez with a pitch, and a pinch runner moved up to second base with two outs on a sac bunt. However, Iglesias escaped the threat by getting Gabriel Moreno to ground out to end it. Though he has managed just the one save on a five-win Atlanta team, Iglesias has been sharp in the early going with three scoreless outings.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Blows save, earns win again

    Iglesias (5-4) blew the save but picked up the win Tuesday against the Phillies, allowing one run on three hits over one inning while also recording a strikeout. The 33-year-old closer couldn't preserve Atlanta's one-run, ninth-inning lead, immediately surrendering a game-tying solo homer to Trea Turner.

The veteran righty was later credited with the win when Atlanta's offense scored the decisive run in the 10th. After successfully converting 20 consecutive save opportunities between June 20 and Sept. 10, Iglesias has now blown a save and earned a win on back-to-back days.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Secures extra-inning save

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Survives for 27th save

    Iglesias notched a save against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out one batter over one scoreless inning. Iglesias entered in the bottom of the ninth with the daunting task of facing the top of Los Angeles' order while trying to protect a one-run lead. He was able to get Mookie Betts -- who homered twice in the game -- to fly out to deep right field before walking Freddie Freeman and giving up a hit to Will Smith. With the winning runs on base, Iglesias bounced back to retire Max Muncy and Enrique Hernandez to finish off the victory. The veteran closer hasn't blow a save since June 12 against Detroit, and since that time he's gone 17-for-17 in save opportunities while posting a 1.86 ERA and 40:7 K:BB over 29 frames.

Minter threw 15 pitches Wednesday in the eighth, so look for Kirby Yates or Joe Jimenez to handle the ninth in the series finale Thursday if there's a late lead to protect.
