Cincinnati Reds – Raisel Iglesias struck out a pair in a perfect ninth inning yesterday for his 18th save of the season.  The Reds are willing to listen to offers for Iglesias so he will be a name to watch as the trade deadline approaches this week.

Hierarchy remains: Iglesias | Lorenzen | Garrett.

Cincinnati Reds — Raisel Iglesias has been very busy lately, going in four of the last five, but he has looked better. His outing Thursday was his third straight day of work — and his third straight scoreless appearance. He nailed down the save in a tight 1-0 win, his third save in his last five outings. So it appears Iglesias is certainly ahead of Michael Lorenzen now, as we suspected. Amir Garrett, meanwhile, is now on the injured list with a left lat strain. He’s been their best reliever to date, but the Reds will have to turn to David Hernandez and Jared Hughes for increased looks in the late innings.

Updated hierarchy: *Iglesias | Lorenzen | Hernandez.
* = closer-by-committee

Cincinnati Reds – Staked to a 1-run lead in the 9th, Raisel Iglesias walked David Freese on 5 pitches and then gave up a walkoff 2-run homer to Joc Pederson. Iglesias has now surrendered runs in four of his six outings to start the season and should be monitored closely going forward.

Hierarchy remains: Iglesias | Hughes | Garrett.

Cincinnati Reds — David Hernandez has struggled, allowing runs in his last three appearances and striking out only one batter in five games. On Wednesday, Amir Garrett picked up a win after pitching a scoreless eighth in a tight game, and Raisel Iglesias followed it up with his first save of the year.

Updated hierarchy: Iglesias | Hughes | Garrett.

Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports the Reds might not use ace reliever Raisel Iglesias as their everyday closer this season.

He points out that new Reds pitching coach Derek Johnson (who served in the same capacity for the Brewers last year) prefers to use his best reliever in a swing-type, high-leverage role. Josh Hader was the best reliever on the Brewers and he was used in multi-inning stints when the game was on the line rather than being saved for the ninth inning. Iglesias has a recent history of being a starter and has been used to get more than three outs on numerous occasions by the Reds over the past two years. Such a change to Iglesias' role would obviously result in fewer saves but more strikeouts and a larger impact on his fantasy teams' ERA and WHIP. Jared Hughes and Michael Lorenzen would be the favorites to close games if Iglesias doesn't handle the ninth inning. Feb 9 - 3:53 PM
