Reds' Raisel Iglesias lasts three innings in loss vs. Indians
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/24/15) Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias took the loss on Sunday, allowing two earned runs on four hits and three walks in three innings while striking out six in his team's 5-2 defeat against the Indians.
Iglesias (1-1) was an injury replacement for Johnny Cueto, who was sidelined due to elbow stiffness. Making his third start of the season, Iglesias needed 84 pitches to get through three innings before turning things over to the bullpen, which ultimately put the game out of reach by giving up two unearned runs in the sixth inning.
Iglesias owns a 4.26 ERA and 17:9 K:BB ratio in 19 innings. He likely won't start during the next trip through the rotation if Cueto is healthy enough to pitch.
Reds SP Raisel Iglesias to start in place of Cueto on Sunday

Reds trying to avoid overworking Michael Lorenzen, Raisel Iglesias
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/18/15) Reds manager Bryan Price knows he needs to be careful with his two rookie pitchers in Michael Lorenzen and Raisel Iglesias, according to MLB.com.
With Cincinnati scuffling a bit, Price knows both pitchers may be called on a bit more than usual.
"We're going to be looking for situations like this in which to rest those guys and not overload their innings," Price said of Lorenzen and Iglesias. "That being said, you don't want to fall out of this thing and go into a free fall without getting the best you have available to you. I think if we're going to be competitive, we're going to have to get the best we can out of our pitching staff, and who those 12 guys are, there are still some question marks.
"That's speaking the obvious, that's not trying to make anyone nervous. We haven't had the consistency out of our pitching when we broke camp. And we're asking a lot out of the young guys to keep us in this race."
Lorenzen has a 1-1 record with a 4.00 ERA in 18 innings of work. Iglesias is 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in 15 innings of work.
Reds' Price: Rasiel Iglesias to pitch out of bullpen against KC
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/14/15) Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias isn't going anywhere just yet. Iglesias, who recorded his first career victory on Wednesday, will be in the bullpen for the team's upcoming series against the Royals. Then, manager Bryan Price said he would determine if he or Michael Lorenzen will rejoin the rotation, according to MLB.com.
There were thoughts that Iglesias would be sent back down to Triple-A after making the spot start, but he pitched well on Wednesday and may have earned a more permanent spot with the Reds' pitching staff.
Reds P Raisel Iglesias gets first MLB win against Braves
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/13/15) Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias struck out five batters in Wednesday night's 5-1 victory over the Braves.
Iglesias went eight innings and only allowed two runs with one earned. He struck out five batters and walked three. In two starts, Iglesias now has a 2.77 ERA.
Iglesias recorded the first win of his MLB career.
|2014 summary: The Reds signed Cuban pitcher Raisel Iglesias to seven-year deal worth nearly $27 million last June. The righty pitched briefly in the instructional league before working as a reliever in the Arizona Fall League.|
Playing time status: Iglesias got off to a hot start this spring, which is all the Reds needed to see. They announced in mid-March that he's in their starting rotation to begin 2015, beating out Tony Cingrani, among others, for the job. Whether he keeps it after Homer Bailey returns from elbow surgery a few weeks into the year remains to be seen. For what it's worth, he didn't have much starting experience even in Cuba, making 58 of his 63 appearances in relief.
2015 outlook: It's never easy to know how a pitcher's stats will translate from another country, and especially with Iglesias' limited track record as a starter, his chances for success are hard to gauge. The Reds do seem to like his potential, though, making him worth a late-round gamble in Fantasy, especially given his strong performances in both the Arizona Fall League and the Cactus League.
