Reds activated RHP Raisel Iglesias from the 15-day disabled list.
Iglesias is back after missing almost two months with a shoulder issue. The Reds are trying to protect him, so he's coming back as a reliever. He figures to get eased into things, but it's not hard to imagine him emerging as the team's closer down the line. Jun 21 - 3:45 PM

Raisel Iglesias is ready to begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Pensacola.

Iglesias is coming back from a right shoulder impingement. The 26-year-old earned a 3.49 ERA in five starts before getting hurt, though opponents hit .296 against him during that stretch. Iglesias will join the Reds' bullpen upon his return, which eliminates most of his fantasy appeal.

Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) will be used as a reliever when he's activated from the disabled list.

The upside with Iglesias as a starter is easy to see, but the Reds think his shoulder has a better chance of holding up if he's used in relief. They haven't ruled out him eventually returning to a starting role, but he'll have to show he can stay healthy first. Iglesias is about three weeks away from a return.
Jun 5 - 11:12 AM

Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing off a mound soon.

Iglesias has been throwing on flat ground for a week and is almost ready to try things from the bump again. The right-hander is coming back from an impingement in his right shoulder. He's still obviously a few weeks away from a potential return.
May 22 - 9:17 AM

Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) has resumed his throwing program.

He's been limited to playing catch so far, but it's a start. Iglesias was placed on the disabled list with a shoulder impingement late last month. He says he's pain-free now but the Reds aren't going to rush him back. Tim Adleman is 1-1 with a 3.38 ERA since taking over for Iglesias in the starting rotation.
May 14 - 10:38 PM

Reds manager Bryan Price said Tuesday that Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) is "completely pain-free."

Iglesias, on the disabled list since April 25 with a right shoulder impingement, will have a checkup with team doctors on Wednesday. "We’re hoping there’s a throwing program that will be set up and he can start here relatively soon," Price told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday afternoon. Iglesias had a 3.49 ERA and 27/9 K/BB ratio over his first 28 1/3 innings this season for the Reds. It sounds like he could be back by the end of May, but shoulder injuries are usually pretty unpredictable.
May 10 - 6:48 PM

Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) has not resumed throwing yet.

Iglesias was scratched from his start Sunday because of a right shoulder impingement and was placed on the disabled list shortly after. He won't be ready to come off the DL when he first becomes eligible on May 11. Tim Adleman will continue to occupy his place in the starting rotation.
May 5 - 7:02 PM

Reds placed RHP Raisel Iglesias on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 25, with a right shoulder injury.

Iglesias felt a "pinch" in the shoulder while throwing a bullpen session Friday. It's unclear at this point how long he'll be sidelined, but it's noteworthy that he also dealt with fatigue in his shoulder late last season. Tim Adleman is replacing Iglesias in the Reds' rotation.
May 1 - 11:31 AM

Raisel Iglesias (shoulder) has been scratched from Sunday's start against the Pirates.

The Reds weren't taking any chances after Iglesias said he felt a "pinch" in his throwing shoulder on Friday. The Reds will call up Tim Adleman from Triple-A Louisville to start in his place. For now it looks like Iglesias will only have to miss one start, but we wouldn't totally rule out a trip to the disabled list. He's been dealing with shoulder issues on and off since September.
Apr 30 - 11:39 PM

Raisel Iglesias is in danger of missing Sunday's start against the Pirates with a right shoulder injury.

Iglesias said he felt a "pinch" on Friday and was examined by team doctors. This could be a recurrence of the shoulder fatigue that plagued him late last season. Louisville right-hander Tim Adleman was scratched from his scheduled start Saturday in case the Reds need him to fill in on Sunday. Iglesias' first five starts have yielded mixed results. His 3.49 ERA is impressive but opponents are hitting .296 against him with four homers in 115 at-bats. Fantasy owners should prepare to be without him on Sunday.
Apr 30 - 6:18 PM

Raisel Iglesias allowed three runs over five innings Monday in a no-decision against the Mets.

All the damage came on the home run ball, as he gave up a solo shot to Michael Conforto in the first inning before allowing a two-run homer to Lucas Duda in the third. He gave up eight hits and two walks in all, so things could have been worse. Iglesias struck out seven in the no-decision. He has a 3.49 ERA and 29/7 K/BB ratio in 28 1/3 innings through five starts this season. He’ll get the Pirates next.
Apr 25 - 10:58 PM

Raisel Iglesias held the Rockies to two runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in a Reds win.

Iglesias was stuck with a no-decision because the Reds' bullpen -- Blake Wood and Tony Cingrani, to be exact -- coughed up a three-run lead in the top of the eighth inning. The right-hander struck out eight and issued just one walk while pitching deep into the seventh. He boasts a 3.09 ERA and 22 strikeouts in 23 1/3 innings this season and will try to keep it all working next week at Citi Field in New York.
Apr 20 - 4:01 PM

Raisel Iglesias gave up three runs on six hits over five innings in Thursday's loss to the Cubs.

Iglesias did better than many others who have had to face the Cubs' lineup, but they eventually wore him down. The right-hander walked two while striking out two in the contest. The loss was his first in three starts, and he still owns a nice 3.24 ERA with a less-nice 1.44 WHIP overall. Another tough lineup awaits Iglesias on Tuesday when the Rockies come to town.
Apr 14 - 11:37 PM

Raisel Iglesias tossed 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Reds' victory over the Pirates.

The only run for the visiting Bucs came on a Josh Harrison RBI single in the top of the sixth inning. They did produce eight hits against Iglesias, but he was able to navigate through a bunch of tight spots, tallying five strikeouts against two walks. The right-hander now stands 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA through two starts this season. He'll try to keep it all working next week in St. Louis.
Apr 9 - 4:20 PM

Raisel Iglesias yielded two runs over six innings Monday in a no-decision against the Phillies on Opening Day.

His only mistake was a two-run homer to Freddy Galvis in the top of the second inning. Otherwise, he was very impressive, striking out seven and walking none. Anthony DeSclafani was originally expected to make the Opening Day assignment before coming down with an oblique injury, but Iglesias has the best fantasy potential on this staff. The big question is how many innings the Reds will allow him to throw this season.
