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.

Iglesias hasn't been punching out batters at his usual rate this season -- he has just 16 strikeouts through 23.1 innings -- but he nonetheless is tied for fifth in the majors with 16 saves (in 18 chances).

Iglesias appears to be finding his peak form, reeling off four straight scoreless appearances with a 5:0 K:BB. On the season, he sports a 2.21 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB through 20.1 innings.

He's allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over his last six innings, so it hasn't been the smoothest of stretches for the veteran closer.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Ends Game 2 of twin bill with save

    Iglesias notched a save in the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Padres, striking out one batter in a perfect inning of work.

The veteran closer hasn't posted his usual big strikeout numbers with just a 12:5 K:BB over 18.1 innings, but he's converted 11 of 13 save chances this season while registering a 2.45 ERA and 1.15 WHIP.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Nabs ninth save

    Iglesias struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his ninth save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Red Sox. The right-hander topped out at 97.1 mph as he bounced back from a blown save in his last appearance Friday. Iglesias hasn't been as dominant as usual to begin the season, managing a 10:3 K:BB through 14.1 innings, but his 1.88 ERA and 0.98 WHIP have been stellar. With his velocity finally getting back to normal as the weather warms up, more strikeouts could soon follow.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Blows save in extras

    Iglesias blew the save Friday against the Dodgers. He allowed one unearned run on one hit and no walks with no strikeouts over one inning. Iglesias entered the bottom of the 10th inning tasked with retiring the top of the Dodgers order to earn a save. He promptly retired Mookie Betts on two pitches before yielding a game-tying RBI single to Shohei Ohtani. However, since it was the automatic runner that scored, the Atlanta closer escaped Friday night without a hit to his ERA, which now stands at 2.03 over 13.1 innings.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Secures eighth save

    Iglesias gave up a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his eighth save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Mariners. It wasn't the sharpest appearance for Iglesias, who put two batters on base before getting an out, but he settled down and took care of the heart of Seattle's order without too much more trouble. The right-hander has converted eight of his nine save chances to begin the year while posting a typically stingy 2.19 ERA and 1.05 WHIP through 12.1 innings, but there are signs Iglesias isn't quite in peak form -- his 94.5 mph average fastball is his lowest velocity since 2016, and his 18.0 percent strikeout rate is a massive drop from the 29.4 percent mark he delivered last season. His top velocity Wednesday was 95.3 mph, on a two-seamer to Luke Raley.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: First blown save

    Iglesias blew the save Wednesday against the Marlins, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and no walks across one inning. He struck out one. Iglesias was given two runs of cushion in the ninth but allowed three consecutive singles to open up the frame. With the bases loaded and no outs, a hard-hit groundball by Josh Bell ricocheted off Matt Olson into Atlanta's dugout, allowing two runs to score. The outing snapped Iglesias's streak of seven straight appearances with a save and it was just his second outing allowing a run in 10 appearances.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Fans two for sixth save

    Iglesias earned the save in a win over the Rangers on Saturday, pitching a perfect ninth inning while striking out two.

Iglesias has converted all six of his save attempts to open the campaign, issuing just one walk over that stretch (5.1 innings).

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Collects fifth save

    Iglesias walked one in a scoreless 10th inning Wednesday to record his fifth save of the season in a 5-4 win over the Astros. After Atlanta grabbed the lead in the top of the 10th, Iglesias walked Kyle Tucker on five pitches to lead off the bottom of the frame and set up a double play, and the right-hander got one from Jeremy Pena to end the game. Iglesias is still looking for his peak velocity -- he topped out at 94.6 mph with his sinker Wednesday, below last season's 95.0 mph average -- and he has just a 3:1 K:BB through his first 6.1 innings. However, the 34-year-old is 5-for-5 in converting save chances and sports a 2.84 ERA and 0.95 WHIP. His job as Atlanta's closer remains secure.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Halts comeback with one-out save

    Iglesias earned the save Tuesday against the Astros, retiring the only batter he faced via a groundout. Iglesias was forced to take the mound Tuesday after Aaron Bummer gave up a pair of runs in the ninth. Despite still owning a four-run lead with two outs in the final frame, Atlanta decided to play it safe and turn the ball over to Iglesias, who promptly forced Victor Caratini to ground into a fielder's choice. Iglesias is now 4-for-4 in save opportunities and is tied for the fifth-most saves in the National League.

  • Braves' Raisel Iglesias: Secures third save

    Iglesias pitched a perfect inning Sunday, striking out a batter on his way to a save in a 9-7 win over the Marlins. Iglesias was called upon to protect the team's two-run lead in the bottom of the ninth inning, setting down Miami in order for his third save of the year. The right-hander rebounded well after he allowed two runs on three hits in his last outing Tuesday, improving to 3-for-3 on save opportunities in 2024. Iglesias has produced a 3.60 ERA and 1.00 WHIP with three strikeouts over five innings in five outings this season.

  • 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: Looks sharp Monday

    Iglesias walked one and struck out two in a scoreless inning of relief during Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Twins. The Atlanta closer followed Spencer Strider in the game and took over for the sixth inning, fanning Willi Castro and Carlos Santana before escaping a bit of a jam created by an error on the part of minor-league second baseman Luke Waddell. Iglesias has a 4:2 K:BB through three spring innings, and he appears on track to be ready for Opening Day after reaching 30 saves for the fourth time in his career in 2023.
