Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Posts 34th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias struck out the side and didn't allow a baserunner during the ninth inning to earn a save in a 3-2 victory against the Mets on Saturday.

His losses and ERA are flat-out ugly for a closer, but Iglesias has been very helpful in the saves and strikeouts categories. He's been particularly great lately, posting seven saves and 15 strikeouts in his last nine innings, all of which have been scoreless. Overall, he is 3-11 with 34 saves, five blown saves, 3.99 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 89 strikeouts in 65.1 innings this season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Nabs 33rd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias gave up a hit and struck out two in a scoreless 10th inning Wednesday to record his 33rd save of the season in a 3-2 win over the Cubs.

The Reds closer remains perfect in September, converting all six of his save chances without allowing a run over eight appearances. Iglesias sports a 4.06 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 86:21 K:BB through 64.1 innings on the season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Nails down 32nd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his 32nd save of the season in a 4-2 win over the Cubs.

The Reds closer has been almost flawless in September, converting all five of his save chances with a 0.00 ERA, 0.29 WHIP and 10:1 K:BB through seven innings. Iglesias has already set a new career high in saves, but his 4.12 ERA and 3-11 record on the year indicate how much of a struggle it's been, despite his dazzling current form.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Notches 31st save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias pitched a perfect ninth inning while striking out two batters to earn the save against Arizona on Sunday.

Iglesias faced little resistance from the Diamondbacks, needing only 13 pitches, eight of which were strikes, to retire the side in order. After a pair of rough outings to end August, the 29-year-old has been nearly unhittable in September, allowing one base knock and no runs in six innings while striking out eight batters. He has successfully converted 31 of 36 save opportunities this season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Posts 30th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias earned the save against the Diamondbacks on Friday, firing a scoreless ninth inning while surrendering one hit.

Tasked with protecting a 4-3 lead in the ninth, Iglesias forced Carson Kelly and Ildemaro Vargas to fly out before allowing Ketel Marte to swat a double. The 29-year-old stifled any additional threat by inducing a groundout from Josh Rojas to end the game. The save was the 30th of the year for Iglesias, who has now posted back-to-back 30-save seasons.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Nails down 29th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his 29th save of the season in an 8-5 win over the Phillies.

The right-hander has been struggling lately, getting scored upon in five of his last 10 appearances, but he was able to get the job done Wednesday. Iglesias has a 4.47 ERA and 78:20 K:BB through 58.1 innings as he closes in on his second straight 30-save season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Picks up 28th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias earned the save against St. Louis on Sunday by striking out the side in a perfect ninth inning.

Iglesias entered the game having allowed six earned runs in his last 2.2 innings but appeared dominant against the Cardinals on Sunday, whiffing all three hitters he faced on 17 pitches. The 29-year-old has faced scrutiny over his job security as a result of his result struggles but may have calmed the tempest a bit with the impressive outing. Iglesias has now converted 28 of 33 save chances this season while posting a 4.55 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 77:20 K:BB over 57.1 innings.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Bell noncommittal about role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias (2-11) blew the save and took the loss in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. When asked after the game if Iglesias would be moved out of the closer role, manager David Bell said that the Reds need to make sure Iglesias doesn't lose his confidence "no matter what situation he is pitching in," Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Iglesias allowed all three batters he faced to reach and now has two blown saves and three losses on the road trip, bringing his total to 11 losses this season, the most for a reliever in club history. Bell has stuck by Iglesias all year and his statements after the game don't make clear that a role change is coming, but it's becoming increasingly difficult to justify keeping Iglesias in the top spot. In fact, a case can be made that Iglesias is the Reds' fourth best reliever at this point, behind (in some order) Michael Lorenzen, Amir Garrett and Robert Stephenson.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Takes 10th loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias (2-10) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Marlins after surrendering a solo home run.

Summoned to protect a 3-3 game in the bottom of the 12th, Iglesias threw just three pitches that led to a walkoff home run for Harold Ramirez. He now has 10 losses on the season with 27 saves and owns a 4.31 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 61:16 K:BB.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Grabs 27th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias allowed two hits and struck out one across 1.1 innings to earn the save Tuesday against the Marlins.

Iglesias was handed a relatively comfortable three-run lead and looked sharp in recording the final four outs of the contest. He entered the game with the tying run at the plate, but got out of the jam by retiring Martin Prado. While he allowed two hits in the final frame, both were only singles, one of which didn't leave the infield. It was a bounce-back effort for Iglesias, who had surrendered three earned runs across his last 1.1 innings of work entering Tuesday.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Blows save in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias (2-9) allowed two runs on four hits while recording just one out during the ninth inning Friday, blowing the save and taking the loss against the Pirates.

He didn't give up any extra-base hits, but the only out Iglesias recorded in five batters faced came on a sacrifice bunt. The blown save snapped his streak of nine straight successful save conversions and pushed his ERA back above 4.00. Iglesias has 26 saves with four blown opportunities, a 4.17 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 54 innings this season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Strikes out two in save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias recorded two strikeouts while allowing no baserunners during the ninth inning to post a save in a 4-2 victory against the Padres on Wednesday.

His overall numbers still aren't the best, but Iglesias has allowed just one run over his last 10.2 innings. Over almost the last month, he's converted nine straight save opportunities as well. Overall, he has 26 saves with a 3.86 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 53.2 innings this season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Records 25th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias didn't allow a baserunner and struck out two in the ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Padres.

Iglesias was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the final frame and he came through with little trouble to earn his 25th save. He's now held the opposition scoreless in nine of his last 10 appearances after going through a rough patch in late July, during which he allowed at least one earned run in three consecutive outings. Things have taken a positive turn and Iglesias has now recorded eight of the team's last 10 saves and is being used predominantly as a traditional closer.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Picks up 24th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias got the save against the Cardinals on Thursday, giving up one earned run on one hit over 1.1 innings before closing out the Reds' 2-1 victory. He struck out one and walked one.

Tasked with protecting a 2-0 lead, it wasn't an entirely clean outing for the right-hander, but he was able to limit the damage to one run and successfully convert his 24th save of the season. Iglesias had made eight straight scoreless appearances coming into the contest, so he's been pitching well of late, although this performance brings his ERA back up 4.01 to go along with a 1.28 WHIP over 51.2 innings.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Nails down 23rd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his 23rd save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Cubs.

After serving up homers in three straight appearances in mid-July, Iglesias has righted the ship and been absolutely dominant, posting a 0.00 ERA and 9:0 K:BB through his last 7.1 innings while converting all six of his save chances. The 29-year-old now sports a 3.93 ERA and 65:19 K:BB through 50.1 innings on the year.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Records final out for save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias struck out the final batter of Monday's contest against the Angels for the save.

Iglesias entered in the ninth inning with two outs and a runner on first base in a three-run ballgame, though he was able to fan Shohei Otani to secure the victory. Iglesias has now turned in six scoreless outings, picking up five saves while striking out seven over that stretch (5.1 innings).

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Nails down 21st save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his 21st save of the season in a 5-2 win over Atlanta.

The Reds closer almost literally was looking over his shoulder at Michael Lorenzen in this one -- after throwing 1.1 perfect innings of his own as the setup man, Lorenzen stayed in the game in right field, just in case -- but Iglesias breezed through the heart of Atlanta's order in the ninth. The Cuban right-hander now sports a 4.21 ERA and 62:19 K:BB through 47 innings on the year.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Posts 20th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias retired the Pirates in order during the ninth in a 4-1 victory to earn his 20th save of the season Wednesday afternoon.

The 29-year-old also recorded a strikeout, giving him eight straight outings with at least one punchout. Iglesias hit a rough patch in the middle of July, but he ended the month with three scoreless innings where he allowed only two hits and struck out four. Iglesias is 2-8 with 20 saves, 4.30 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 60 strikeouts in 46 innings this season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Posts 19th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias set down the Rockies in order with two strikeouts during the ninth inning to earn a save during a 3-1 victory Saturday.

The 29-year-old had given up a run in three straight appearances, so it was good to see him make quick work of the Rockies on Saturday. Iglesias is just 2-8 but also 19-for-22 in save chances with a 4.50 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 44 innings this season.

Reds' Raisel Iglesias: Gives up grand slam
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Iglesias blew the save Monday against Milwaukee, allowing three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out two in two-thirds of an inning.

Iglesias was called into action with none out in the eighth inning, with a three-run lead and a runner on first. He promptly loaded the bases before allowing a one-out grand slam to Tyler Saladino, who owned a .321 OPS on the season heading into Monday's game. Iglesias was unable to finish the inning but was spared a loss when the Reds reclaimed the lead in the top of the ninth. The poor outing raised his season ERA to 4.60.
