Raisel Iglesias (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment early this week.

Iglesias was cleared for game action after throwing another successful bullpen session on Saturday. "I don't think he has anything else to prove throwing on the side," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "His next outing is sometime early next week in a game. It will take two or three outings probably to build him back up to start." Iglesias should rejoin the Reds' rotation right after the All-Star break.

Raisel Iglesias (oblique) threw a bullpen session Wednesday.

It's the first time he's thrown off a mound since he went down with a strained left oblique late last month. The Reds think Iglesias has time to rejoin the rotation prior to the All-Star break as long as he can avoid setbacks.
Jun 24 - 3:09 PM

The Reds are hoping to get Raisel Iglesias (oblique) back prior to the All-Star break.

Iglesias has resumed flat-ground work and should be cleared to throw off a mound soon. The right-hander has been out all month with a strained left oblique and will require at least one rehab start before being activated.

Raisel Iglesias (oblique) played catch on Wednesday.

It's the first time he's done any throwing since a strained left oblique forced him to the disabled list a couple weeks ago. Iglesias obviously still has a ways to go but could be ready to rejoin the Reds' rotation prior to the All-Star break.
Jun 17 - 2:30 PM

Reds placed RHP Raisel Iglesias on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 31, with a strained left oblique.

It's not clear when Iglesias suffered the injury, but now we know why Jon Moscot is starting for him Friday. He's likely to need more than 15 days of down time.
Jun 5 - 3:56 PM

Raisel Iglesias didn't pitch well in Saturday's win over the Nationals, allowing five runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings.

The Nationals went up 5-2 after a three-run homer by Michael Taylor in the sixth, but the Red offense clawed their way back to win 8-5. Iglesias has shown flashes of promise, as evidenced by his eight strikeouts. He also has yet to put everything together, though, and holds a 5.11 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 25/9 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. If he gets another start, it'll be against the Padres.
May 30 - 7:47 PM

Raisel Iglesias needed 84 pitches to get through three innings, allowing two runs in a loss to the Indians on Sunday.

Iglesias didn't pitch particularly poorly, but he was unable to finish at-bats which explains the high pitch count. He gave up four hits, walked three, and struck out six. Both runs scored in a long third inning, forcing his ouster. The Reds were hoping Iglesias would pitch well enough to give them a no-brainer decision to start him again. As of now, it's up in the air if he'll take his next scheduled turn over the weekend against the Nationals at home. Iglesias has a 4.26 ERA with a 17/9 K/BB ratio in three starts and one relief appearance spanning 19 innings.
May 24 - 4:27 PM

Raisel Iglesias will start for the Reds on Sunday against the Indians in Cleveland.

While nothing has been confirmed, it sounds as though the Reds are shuffling their rotation and that Iglesias may remain in this spot long term. The 25-year-old owns a 3.94 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 11/6 K/BB ratio over his 16 innings with the Reds.
May 23 - 11:04 AM

Raisel Iglesias will pitch out of the bullpen for now.

Iglesias gave up one run over eight innings Wednesday against the Braves for his first major league win. It was assumed that he would be sent right back down to the minors, but he'll stick around as a reliever and will be available out of the bullpen as soon as Sunday. The Reds have four off-days before June 1, so they plan to go with a four-man rotation for the time being.
May 14 - 5:42 PM

Raisel Iglesias, making a spot start, gave up only one run over eight innings for his first major league win as the Reds topped the Braves on Wednesday.

Despite the solid showing, Iglesias will be sent back down to Triple-A Louisville. The right-hander allowed only two hits while walking three and striking out five. Iglesias wasn't putting up great numbers at Triple-A, with an 11/7 K/BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings, but his performance on Wednesday should keep him at the top of the list if the Reds need another starter later in the season.
May 13 - 9:18 PM

Reds recalled RHP Raisel Iglesias from Triple-A Louisville.

He'll start on Wednesday against the Braves. It's just a spot start, as Iglesias will be sent back down after the game in order to make room for waiver claim Ryan Mattheus.
May 13 - 3:44 PM

Raisel Iglesias will be called up to start Wednesday against the Braves.

That was the expectation already, but it's now official. The Reds need another starter after Saturday's doubleheader, but this will likely just be a spot-start before he's sent back down to Triple-A.
May 12 - 3:19 PM

Raisel Iglesias is expected to be recalled to make a spot start on Wednesday against the Braves.

Saturday's doubleheader created a need for another starter and Iglesias is the obvious choice since it would be his turn to pitch at Triple-A Louisville. The righty allowed three runs over five innings in a start with the big club last month and holds a 3.80 ERA over four starts at Triple-A.
May 10 - 10:21 AM

Reds optioned RHP Raisel Iglesias to Triple-A Louisville.

In his short time with the Reds this season, he allowed three runs in five innings. Iglesias does have a live arm and could see time later this season, but for now he'll work on refining his game in the minors.
