DateQuestionAnswer
2017-01-31 19:00:00 (link to chat)What role does Raisel Iglesias play in 2017? Does he become a SP again?
(Ron from Texarkana)
Feels like he's headed for the pen in a super reliever type role. It's a shame, because he's awesome, but I don't know if he can hold up as a starter any more. (Mark Barry)
2016-01-27 19:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Matt,dynasty league,please rank...A J Pollock..Matt Duffy....Raisel Iglesias....Micheal Conforto...Joe Ross .....Jesse Hahn...Randall Grichuk...Billy Burns Thanks,John
(John from Boston)
Pollock, Conforto, Iglesias, Duffy, Ross, Grichuk, Burns, Hahn (Matt Collins)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)Is Iglesias going to be the Opening Day SP for the Reds? Thinking he has potential, but don't see him as a #1 SP. Also pitching for what will no doubt be a bad team, plus pitching in a very hitters ballpark. The outlook for him appears kind of grim for now, don't you agree?
(asarule from Lakewood CA)
I'm really high on Raisel Iglesias. I wrote about him a bunch late last season here at BP. Over his final 11 starts, he posted a 3.39 ERA (0.98 WHIP) while striking out 77 (10.45 K/9) and issuing just 19 walks (2.58 BB/9). He's a dark horse candidate to finish as a top-30 fantasy starter this season if the innings are there. (George Bissell)
2016-01-21 19:00:00 (link to chat)After reading Reds prospect list today, seem to have a very solid/upper echelon farm system. Thoughts on the start of their rebuild and future contention? Appreciate the time with these chats
(Bob from Cincy)
I really like the return they got on Cueto. I don't feel the same way about what they did with the Frazier and Chapman deals. I thought they sold at the lowest possible value on both. Would have netted much more last summer at the trade deadline. I really like Raisel Iglesias, Anthony DeSclafani, Brandon Finnegan, etc... and I think with Stephenson and Reed on the way, they should have the pieces necessary for a solid rotation. I want to see a step forward from Billy Hamilton this year, that would be huge. (George Bissell)
2016-01-14 20:00:00 (link to chat)Raisel Iglesias or Lance McCullers?
(Paul from DC)
Close call, but I'm leaning Iglesias since he gets to face the pitcher and the ERA will be a little nicer as a result. (Mike Gianella)
2015-07-02 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Doug, could you rate these 5 Ps for future? Any stand out above the others? Joe Ross, Vincent Velasquez, Raisel Iglesias, Matt Wisler, Michael Lorenzen. Thanks!
(ColeWhittier from Pasadena)
Ross is an intriguing pitcher but his pitch selection is mirroring his brother's approach, including a high rate of SL's that simultaneously raises the injury risk and put the onus on his ability to bury the pitch. I really like Velasquez's delivery and the velo is legit. Iglesias is incredibly advanced for his age. Lorenzen has great stuff but was perhaps promoted before the command was honed, whereas Wisler holds the opposite profile of low ceiling but high floor. Long-term, give me Velasquez-Lorenzen-Wisler-Iglesias-Ross, but in the near-term I would go with Velasquez-Wisler-Ross-Iglesias-Lorenzen. Velasquez is above the others, and development will determine how the rest fall into place. (Doug Thorburn)
2015-02-26 20:00:00 (link to chat)Share some good thoughts and insight on Raisel Iglesias if you would be so kind.
(Victor from Maryland)
Strong mid-90's fastball with the potential for a bat-missing slider and another potential average pitch in his change. Likely a reliever given his arsenal, but will likely be given at least one chance to start (though it could be like the change they gave Chapman). (Bret Sayre)
