Raisel Iglesias    R  Reds

 

 

Raisel Iglesias was scheduled to have his right elbow and back examined on Monday. It's unclear when the right-hander's elbow and back started bothering him, but the Reds don't seem to be concerned at this point. "He should be OK," manager Bryan Price said. "We're going to do a bit more of a thorough once-over today with both the elbow and back. There's no reason to slow him down completely." It doesn't look like this is anything serious, but it's worth noting that the reason Iglesias was made into a full-time reliever is because the Reds doubted his ability to hold up physically as a starter. The club isn't expected to name a regular closer going into 2017, but Iglesias will get the first crack if he's healthy.

Iglesias was scratched from a workout Sunday after complaining of back and elbow soreness, the Reds' broadcast team reported during Monday's spring training game.

Raisel Iglesias went two scoreless innings Sunday in a Cactus League appearance versus the Angels. Iglesias induced three groundouts in the bottom of the fourth and a groundout and two flyouts in the bottom of the fifth. The right-hander has now gone four scoreless innings to open the spring. He is the favorite to open the 2017 regular season as the Reds' closer, though there is some talk of a matchup-based committee approach. It is perhaps notable that both of Iglesias' appearances in the Cactus League so far have been of the multi-inning variety.

Reds GM Dick Williams said the team's closer will be determined at spring training. Raisel Iglesias has to be considered the frontrunner after putting up a 1.98 ERA and 54 strikeouts in 50 innings as a reliever in 2016 and finishing out the year as the Reds' ninth-inning man, but newcomer Drew Storen is also apparently going to get a shot. Tony Cingrani and Michael Lorenzen may be in the running here too. It's something we'll be tracking throughout the spring.

Iglesias may open 2017 as part of a closer committee, MLB.com reports. "...I do think the game is looking at finding more than one person who is comfortable throwing in the ninth inning, more than one person who is capable of throwing multiple innings in a setup role," manager Bryan Price said.

Iglesias gave up four runs Sunday against the Cubs to blow the save and get the loss in the season finale. He gave up three hits, including a two-run homer by Miguel Montero - the 258th homer allowed by the Reds this year, establishing a new record for a team in one season.
