Angels Acquire Raisel Iglesias



Los Angeles Angels

The Los Angeles Angels have acquired closer Raisel Iglesias from the Cincinnati Reds as the continue to task of rebuilding their bullpen this offseason, according to ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez.

Iglesias, 30, is coming off perhaps the best season of his career in 2020, when posted a 2.74 ERA to go along with a 0.91 WHIP, striking out 31 batters while only walking 5 over the span of 23 innings.

Iglesias will make $9.125 million in the final season of his three-year, $24.125 million contract, however the Angels are receiving cash considerations as part of the trade.
