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.

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.

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.
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.

It was a bounce-back effort for Iglesias, who had surrendered three earned runs across his last 1.1 innings of work entering Tuesday.
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.

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.

The Cuban right-hander now sports a 4.21 ERA and 62:19 K:BB through 47 innings on the year.

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.
