The Cuban defector Iglesias made a splash by signing with the Reds prior to the 2015 season. While he made six starts with Louisville that season, Iglesias saw most of his time in Cincinnati. He made 18 appearances and 16 starts with the Reds. In those starts, he saw a WHIP of 1.17 and a FIP of 3.55, while striking out just under 10 per nine innings. His command was good most times and Iglesias earned himself the 2016 opening day start for the Reds with the success and other injuries. Iglesias was off to a strong start, but found his way to the DL at the end of April with a shoulder injury. Iglesias works with a fastball in the 93-95 MPH range and possesses a deceptive, drop down delivery. He also has a curve ball that works in the low-80s. Iglesias had been working as a reliever prior to the defection, but has made a nice transition to starting with the Reds.
