Worst Trades

2.) Angels trade Raisel Iglesias for Jesse Chavez and Tucker Davidson

The Angels have been MLB’s most listless franchise for most if not all of the Trout era. They re-signed Iglesias to a four-year deal in the offseason. His ERA is a little inflated this year, but he’s largely been as good as ever, and he’s been one of the better relievers in the game for a while now. And then they just… salary dumped him off for a 38-year-old middle reliever on a one-year deal and a 26-year-old utility arm? What is the process here exactly? Why would you trade for and keep Chavez? How is any of this helping you in 2023, the last year you will have Shohei Ohtani under contract? Make it make sense.

MLB Trade Rumors:

Braves To Acquire Raisel Iglesias

The Braves pulled off a massive buzzer-beater just before the deadline, acquiring closer Raisel Iglesias from the Angels in exchange for pitching prospect Tucker Davidson and righty Jesse Chavez, reports Robert Murray of FanSided (Twitter link). Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic tweets that the Braves will pay the remainder of Iglesias’ contract — a four-year, $58MM deal that covers the 2022-25 seasons.

Raisel Iglesias (P) ANA - Jul. 08

Iglesias (2-5) allowed three runs on four hits and no walks while striking out one in two-thirds of an inning to take the loss in Friday's game against the Orioles.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Iglesias was called upon to preserve a two-run lead Friday, and he retired the first two batters he faced in the bottom of the ninth inning. However, he allowed the next three batters to record hits and was ultimately charged with his first blown save since June 5. The right-hander served a one-game suspension Sunday against the Astros and has given up four runs in 1.2 innings over two appearances since returning to the field.

Angels pitcher Raisel Iglesias launches sunflower seeds to end insane Mariners brawl

Things got all kinds of weird during Sunday’s game between the Seattle Mariners and Los Angeles Angels.

After Mariners outfielder Jesse Winker was plunked on the rear end by Angels pitcher Andrew Wantz, the benches cleared in Anaheim, resulting in a wild brawl that saw several punches thrown. The Angels didn’t appear to be thrilled that Mariners pitcher Erik Swanson threw at Mike Trout the night before, and the apparent retaliation set both benches off.

After the fight ended and both sides had retreated to their dugouts, Angels reliever Raisel Iglesias was not ready to let sleeping dogs lie. He grabbed an entire box of sunflower seeds, ran out of the dugout and attempted to launch the entire pack towards the Mariners. It was an apparent response to him being one of six players ejected for the brawl.

Do you pay more for one of the few? Or less because there are so many CIWs?

One of the few.

Raisel Iglesias (P) ANA - Mar. 16

Iglesias (personal) arrived at the Angels' big-league camp Wednesday, Sam Blum of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Iglesias wasn't able to report to camp immediately after the lockout ended while he tended to a family matter, but his arrival Wednesday gives him plenty of time to continue his buildup program in advance of Opening Day. After re-upping with the Angels this offseason on a four-year, $58 million deal, Iglesias looks to be one of the closers with the very high job security.

Back with Halos on four-year deal
November 30, 2021
Iglesias agreed to a four-year contract with the Angels on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
Iglesias rejected the $18.4 million qualify offer from the Angels earlier in November, and he'll end up returning to the team on a $58 million deal, per Jon Morosi of MLB Network. The right-hander was acquired by the Halos last offseason and enjoyed a strong first season in Los Angeles, converting 34 of 39 save chances with a 2.57 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 103:12 K:BB across 70 innings. He's locked in as the Angels' closer for the foreseeable future.
