The Reds have officially shut Raisel Iglesias down for the season.
Iglesias has had a bit of shoulder fatigue recently, but the shutdown is really to keep his workload in check. He posted a 4.18 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 104/28 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings in a fine rookie campaign. Sun, Sep 27, 2015 11:36:00 AM

Raisel Iglesias is believed to be past his right shoulder fatigue.

"We think so," Reds manager Bryan Price said on Wednesday. "He's played catch without any restrictions. He's feeling good. He's excited about it." The team wants the 25-year-old to throw a bullpen session soon, but he could actually be cleared for another start before the end of the year if all goes well. Iglesias has a 4.18 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 104/28 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings in his rookie campaign.

Reds manager Bryan Price said Monday that he's not ruling out Raisel Iglesias making another start this season.

However, if it happens it would be an abbreviated outing since the club is trying to keep his workload down. Iglesias has had an impressive first season in Cincy but those in redrafts can move on from him.

Raisel Iglesias was taken out of the Reds' starting rotation with right shoulder fatigue.

"We're trying to make an evaluation of what's the best way to handle his workload the rest of the year," Reds manager Bryan Price said. Iglesias was largely good as a starter, owning a 4.15 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 104/28 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings, but the Reds were always worried about his innings count. Iglesias loses all fantasy value in 2015 with the move.

Raisel Iglesias yielded two runs across five frames in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

Iglesias cruised through the first four innings but ran into trouble in the fifth, allowing three hits and two runs while also throwing a wild pitch and committing a balk. He tossed 36 pitches in the frame and was then pulled, at which point the Reds bullpen imploded. Iglesias has had a terrific second half but could be shut down soon. As it stands now, he'll get the Brewers on the road next weekend.

Raisel Iglesias wasn't long for Tuesday's game, allowing five runs over three innings in a loss to the Pirates.

All five of the Pirates' runs against Iglesias came in the third inning, an inning in which he gave up five hits -- including a three-run homer to Andrew McCutchen -- and also balked in a run. The poor start snapped a streak of seven straight quality starts heading into the game. Iglesias owns a 4.18 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 101/27 K/BB ratio over 90 1/3 innings on the year. He'll look to get back on track Sunday against the Cardinals.

Raisel Iglesias limited the Cubs to two runs and struck out 10 batters over seven innings Wednesday in the Reds' 8-5 afternoon victory at Wrigley Field.

It was another fine performance from the 25-year-old Cuban right-hander, who has now rattled off three straight double-digit strikeout games. Iglesias boasts a 3.81 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 97/26 K/BB ratio in 87 1/3 innings this season. He's probably going to be moved to the bullpen soon to finish out the 2015 campaign, but it's certainly been an eye-opening summer.

Raisel Iglesias couldn't translate his 10 strikeouts into a win against the Brewers on Friday, as he allowed three runs on four hits over seven innings in the 5-0 defeat.

Iglesias struck out 10 Brewers and walked just two, but opposing starter Taylor Jungmann was just a tad bit better. Given that the Reds scored zero runs, Iglesias probably would have been stuck with a loss no matter what he did. He'll try to improve on his 3-6 record when he takes a 3.92 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 87/23 K/BB ratio (across 80 1/3 innings) into his next start, a Wednesday afternoon road outing against the Cubs.

Raisel Iglesias pitched well, allowing two runs (one earned) in seven innings while striking out 13, but still took the loss on Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

The 13 punch-outs set a new career-best for Iglesias, whose previous career-high was eight. He gave up a solo home run to Welington Castillo in the fourth inning, and a Joey Votto throwing error allowed another run to score in the sixth. He gave up three hits and three walks on the afternoon. In August, Iglesias has a terrific 1.93 ERA over five starts. Overall, he owns a 3.93 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and a 77/21 K/BB ratio in 73 1/3 innings. The right-hander will take the mound in Milwaukee against the Brewers next.

Raisel Iglesias fired seven shutout innings, but took a no-decision on Tuesday as the Reds lost 3-1 in 13 innings to the Royals.

Iglesias limited the Royals to three hits and a walk while striking out three. He would've gotten the win if Aroldis Chapman hadn't blown the save. Since rejoining the Reds' rotation on July 11, the right-hander has a 3.67 ERA in seven starts. Iglesias will take on the Diamondbacks in a home start next.
Tue, Aug 18, 2015 11:58:00 PM

Raisel Iglesias pitched six innings of one-run ball in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Iglesias struck out six and walked one in one of his finest efforts to date. He's probably not a mixed-league option for the rest of this year, particularly since the Reds will want to be careful with him down the stretch, but he'll enter next year as a sleeper.

Raisel Iglesias turned in a solid performance against the Pirates on Saturday, allowing just two runs on four hits over 6 2/3 innings.

Iglesias struck out five and walked two. He coughed up a solo home run to Jung Ho Kang in the fourth inning and an RBI single to Travis Ishikawa in the seventh, but otherwise kept the Pirates from damaging the scoreboard too badly. The owner of a bloated 5.13 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 47 1/3 innings, he'll try to build on this start when he takes to the road to face the Diamondbacks in his next start.

Raisel Iglesias allowed a grand slam, accounting for all four runs in his six innings of work during Monday's loss to the Cardinals.

The Cardinals loaded the bases on a double, a single, and a hit batter when Kolten Wong unloaded them with two outs in the fourth inning. Iglesias otherwise kept the Cardinals off the board, yielding six hits while striking out seven and issuing zero walks. He's winless in five starts since rejoining the rotation, carrying an overall 5.53 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 42/13 K/BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings. Iglesias faces off against the Pirates at home next.

Raisel Iglesias allowed two runs in 5 2/3 innings, taking a no-decision as the Reds lost in 13 innings to the Cubs on Tuesday.

Iglesias allowed a bunch of base runners on six hits and four walks, but eight strikeouts helped him limit the damage. The Cubs scored once in the fifth inning on Kyle Schwarber's ground-rule double and again in the sixth on Chris Coghlan's solo home run. The outing was the right-hander's best since May 13. Iglesias will bring a 5.45 ERA, a 1.56 WHIP, and a 35/13 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings into a road start versus the Cardinals.

Raisel Iglesias struggled in a loss to the Marlins on Saturday, allowing five runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings.

All five runs scored against Iglesias came in the fifth inning. Cole Gillespie took him deep for a solo homer to lead off the inning, with the other four runs coming home on a trio of RBI singles. This was Iglesias' first start since May 31, as he missed the last month-plus with a strained left oblique. His pre-injury numbers are no more impressive than those he posted in Saturday's start and he came into the game working with a 5.11 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 25/9 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings. There's not much to recommend here for fantasy purposes.
