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 | 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.
