2019 Fantasy Outlook
At first glance, 2018 appears to be Iglesias' best season. His 30 saves were a career high, and while that total may seem underwhelming, consider that the Reds won 67 games and were outscored by 123 runs. Similarly, he posted career-low ratios, with a 2.38 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. But if you dig a little deeper, some of his underlying skills declined. He gave up 12 homers in 72 innings after allowing only five the year before, nearly tripling his HR/9 rate and more than doubling his HR/FB rate from 8.3% to 18.8%. His hard-hit rate skyrocketed from 24.2% to 34.8%. The primary culprits were his sinker and four-seamer, as both lost about a mile per hour. Opposing hitters clubbed nine of those homers and slugged .544 against those two pitches. He threw his four-seamer less than ever, mixing in his changeup more, perhaps as a result. With these underlying numbers, there's a risk of a drop-off in 2019. Read Past Outlooks
