Reds | Raisel Iglesias to receive start

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:46:44 -0700

Cincinnati Reds P Raisel Iglesias will be the starting pitcher against the Cleveland Indians Sunday, May 24, in place of SP Johnny Cueto.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been used as a starter and reliever this season. He will enter the game with a 3.94 ERA and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore but could be an option for owners looking to save money.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias to the bullpen

Thu, 14 May 2015 18:38:42 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias will move to the bullpen to help limit his innings while the Reds use a four-man rotation because of four off days between Thursday, May 14, and Monday, June 1. He will be available Sunday, May 17, at the earliest after starting Wednesday, May 13.

Fantasy Tip: The move hurts his fantasy value in the short term, but Iglesias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has shown intriguing upside in his two starts. If he returns to the rotation sometime in June, he could make a solid value play at FantasyScore depending on the matchup.

Reds | Rasiel Iglesias impresses in start

Wed, 13 May 2015 21:33:41 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Rasiel Iglesias allowed just one earned run, two hits and three walks over eight innings in a win in just his second-career start Wednesday, May 14, against the Atlanta Braves. He also struck out five batters.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias likely bought himself another start with this gem, and he is a solid bargain at $4,000 (or 8.0% of cap) in FantasyScore due to his strikeout potential when he does get another chance.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias pitching Wednesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 12:39:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias will start Wednesday, May 13, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: This is likely a spot start for Iglesias ($4,000, 8.0% of cap), as a spot opened up due to a doubleheader a few days before. Iglesias has a 3.80 earned run average in four starts at Class AAA Louisville, so he may be worth the flier.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias could start Wednesday

Sat, 09 May 2015 13:40:43 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias could come up for a spot start Wednesday, May 13, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias is 1-2 with a 3.80 ERA and struck out 11 in 21 1/3 innings at Triple-A Louisville. The numbers aren't exactly setting the world on fire, but he has a chance to stick in the rotation with a good performance and be a matchup play on FantasyScore.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias sent down

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:42:56 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias was sent to Triple-A Louisville Monday, April 13, a day after he earned a no-decision in his start against the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday, April 12. SP Josh Smith, who will be making his major league debut, was recalled to take Iglesias' place on the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias allowed three earned runs and five hits while striking out four in five innings in his season debut Sunday. It's unknown if he'll be back in Cincy's starting rotation soon. For now, he doesn't carry much fantasy value aside from deep NL-only leagues.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias has Sunday start

Sun, 12 Apr 2015 04:57:22 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias will start Sunday, April 12, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias could be a cheap option on FantasyScore, but the No. 5 starter in Cincinnati is being thrown into the mix against a Cardinals squad whose bats appear to be coming to life.

Reds | Cincy announces rotation

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 11:22:38 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SPs Johnny Cueto, Mike Leake, Anthony DeSclafani, Jason Marquis and Raisel Iglesias will comprise the team's starting rotation to enter the regular season. SP Paul Maholm is competing for a bullpen spot.

Fantasy Tip: Cueto is really the only pitcher in this five that deserves heavy fantasy baseball attention as an ace for your fake staff. The others are all likely just NL-only targets, with DeSclafani and Iglesias possessing intriguing upside.

Reds | Raisel Iglesias front-runner for rotation

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:40:18 -0700

Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias is considered the front-runner to claim one of the open rotation sports.

Fantasy Tip: The Cuban defector is a complete wildcard, but the Reds invested $27 million over seven years for Iglesias' services, so they're fond of him. He is likely best left alone in the majority of formats, but he is definitely a name to stash away and monitor. In NL-only or cavernous mixed leagues, a speculative late-round flier isn't out of the question. Additionally, continue to check back for updates and monitor his progress throughout the spring, Iglesias' value is extremely fluid at this point.
