No. 2 biggest question of the offseason for the LA Angels: Will we re-sign Raisel Iglesias?
The number one LA Angel available in free agency is undoubtedly Raisel Iglesias.
Iglesias was so impressive this year for the Angels, and has been one of the best relievers in baseball for quite some time now.
Iglesias finished with 34 saves, which tied a career-high for him. He also had a 2.83 ERA, and a 0.929 WHIP. He was dominant, and established his fastball to being one of the best in the game.
Iglesias cost just over $9 million this year, and was a steal for the Angels. They need to bring him back for next year. He’ll surely cost much more, but he’s worth it.
He not only had a great year, but improved big-time in the second half as well. There are plenty of impressive relievers out there, but Iglesias is surely one of the very best.
We chose not to trade him at the deadline, and need to fulfill that commitment with him. It’s not often a team stumbles on a piece like this, and the Halos need to keep him around.
