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.
Jul 22 - 12:07 AM

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.
Jul 11 - 7:12 PM

Reds activated RHP Raisel Iglesias from the 15-day disabled list.

Iglesias will rejoin the Reds rotation on Saturday against the Marlins. He has been sidelined since May 31 with a strained left oblique. Before landing on the shelf, he compiled a 5.11 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 25/9 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings.
Jul 11 - 10:22 AM

Raisel Iglesias (oblique) allowed just one hit over three shutout innings in a rehab start with Triple-A Louisville on Tuesday.

Reds manager Bryan Price said the reports on Iglesias were "good." The right-hander is expected to make two more rehab starts before rejoining the big club's rotation after the All-Star break.
Jul 1 - 10:51 AM

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.
Jun 19 - 4:53 PM

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.
