2018 FANTASY BASEBALL CLOSING TIME: RAISEL IGLESIAS PLACED ON DL WITH BICEPS INJURY

The Cincinnati Reds were forced to place closer Raisel Iglesias on the DL Wednesday with what the team is calling a strained left bicep and there is a chance the injury could keep him out past the minimum ten days.  Having pitched to a terrific ERA of 2.08 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 21.2 IP this season, Iglesias has been one of the few dependable closers in fantasy baseball at a position that is always filled with chaos.  In terms of possible replacements, the Reds bullpen has been filled with injuries as Michael Lorenzen and David Hernandez are both coming off DL stints of their own which means that Amir Garrett or Jared Hughes could get a shot.  As far as Garrett is concerned, he has the look of a closer with as he has pitched to a 1.67 ERA and 1.04 WHIP; while also punching out 31 batters in 27 innings this season.  Hughes woundup picking up a save the other day and he has pitched well himself with a 1.30 ERA and 0.90 WHIP. While this could go in any direction or even be a full blown committee, Hughes or Garrett in that order could be the one to get the first save chance.
