Raisel Iglesias made his Major League debut on April 6th against the Cardinals. His first start was not a Quality start, but pitched 5 innings with 3 runs. Now fast forward 37 days later. Iglesias faced the Atlanta and pitched 8 innings of baseball allowing only a single run, the ERA dropped to 2.77 at a 48.70% rate. Now the Reds had a 5 game week following his start against Atlanta so Bryan Price placed him and Michael Lorenzen on reliever role that week. The inexperience and now opponents receiving tape on him made his performance decline and ended the month of May with a 5.11 ERA, that only was a 5.37% change in ERA from his Major League debut. Iglesias as of June 5th was scratched from his start and Jon Moscot from the Minor Leagues took the start.
Iglesias’ concern for being in the major leagues is allowing a lot of hits. Iglesias allows 1.09 hits per inning but 0.37 walks per inning. Hitters are taking advantage of his weaknesses but Iglesias greatest strength is being ahead of the count. This is something Iglesias has to work on and has little change (4.29%) from debut to last start in May.
The Rates among Iglesias are consistent and does not cross data points. The only thing that Iglesias really has to work on are allowing less hits, typically allows a hit every 4.11 plate appearances. One beautiful thing about Iglesias’ game is that he does not allow the long ball and has only given up 1 in 111 plate appearances.
Now Iglesias has data cross points when it comes to Per 9 innings. The strikeouts are picking up, but the hits need to come down.
Considering that Iglesias faced the St. Louis Cardinals (hitting team), it shows that he can be a power pitcher in this league. After a little decline in a 12 day span, Iglesias K/BB ratio went up to 2.78 and faced the Washington Nationals that day so it shows that General Manager Walt Jocketty found a decent power pitcher and can handle his batters.
