Reds' Raisel Iglesias suffered elbow, hips injuries

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Raisel Iglesias revealed Thursday that he injured his right elbow and hips when he fell in the shower three weeks ago.

What It Means:

This explains why Iglesias hasn't seen any Cactus League action since March 14, and why he received an MRI for the elbow on his throwing arm earlier this week. He's not expected to be ready by Opening Day, opening up more opportunity for Michael Lorenzen, Tony Cingrani and Drew Storen in the season's early goings. Bryan Price, the Reds manager, has already said he would like to go with a more matchups-based approach at closer in 2017, and this injury will make that easier to accomplish.

numberFire's models currently project Iglesias for a 3.39 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 25.3 strikeout percentage across 74 1/3 innings in 2017.
