Reds manager Bryan Price acknowledged Thursday that Raisel Iglesias is the team's primary closer.
That's been made evident by the usage. Iglesias has finished 21 games out of his 25 appearances this season and he is 11-for-11 in save opportunities. There was talk this spring about the Reds taking a more flexible approach to the ninth inning, but Iglesias has been the guy there for the most part. "He's our closer when he's available, and unless we get into a situation like we have a few times with [Michael Lorenzen] where I've used him for two or three innings to kind of try and save the game in the middle," Price said on Thursday. "If Iggy's our freshest arm and I can use him somewhere in the middle innings or middle-late to try to save the game right there, I'll continue to have that option."
