    Iglesias recorded two strikeouts while allowing no baserunners during the ninth inning to post a save in a 4-2 victory against the Padres on Wednesday.

    Impact

    His overall numbers still aren't the best, but Iglesias has allowed just one run over his last 10.2 innings. Over almost the last month, he's converted nine straight save opportunities as well. Overall, he has 26 saves with a 3.86 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 70 strikeouts in 53.2 innings this season.

    News

    Iglesias didn't allow a baserunner and struck out two in the ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Padres.

    Impact

    Iglesias was called upon to protect a one-run lead in the final frame and he came through with little trouble to earn his 25th save. He's now held the opposition scoreless in nine of his last 10 appearances after going through a rough patch in late July, during which he allowed at least one earned run in three consecutive outings. Things have taken a positive turn and Iglesias has now recorded eight of the team's last 10 saves and is being used predominantly as a traditional closer.

    News

    Iglesias got the save against the Cardinals on Thursday, giving up one earned run on one hit over 1.1 innings before closing out the Reds' 2-1 victory. He struck out one and walked one.

    Impact

    Tasked with protecting a 2-0 lead, it wasn't an entirely clean outing for the right-hander, but he was able to limit the damage to one run and successfully convert his 24th save of the season. Iglesias had made eight straight scoreless appearances coming into the contest, so he's been pitching well of late, although this performance brings his ERA back up 4.01 to go along with a 1.28 WHIP over 51.2 innings.

    News

    Iglesias gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to record his 23rd save of the season in a 5-2 win over the Cubs.

    Impact

    After serving up homers in three straight appearances in mid-July, Iglesias has righted the ship and been absolutely dominant, posting a 0.00 ERA and 9:0 K:BB through his last 7.1 innings while converting all six of his save chances. The 29-year-old now sports a 3.93 ERA and 65:19 K:BB through 50.1 innings on the year.

    News

    Iglesias struck out the final batter of Monday's contest against the Angels for the save.

    Impact

    Iglesias entered in the ninth inning with two outs and a runner on first base in a three-run ballgame, though he was able to fan Shohei Otani to secure the victory. Iglesias has now turned in six scoreless outings, picking up five saves while striking out seven over that stretch (5.1 innings).
