 The Angels acquire Raisel Iglesias; beef up bullpen for 2021 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1473

On Tuesday's episode, Locked On Angels host Brent Maguire breaks down the trade that sent Raisel Iglesias to the Angels. Iglesias, one of the best relievers in baseball over the last half-decade, helps beef up an Angels bullpen that was wildly mediocre in 2020 and was recently gutted during the non-tender deadline. The longtime Cincinnati Reds closer will likely take on the same role with the Angels in 2021. Iglesias will make $9.125 million next season before hitting free agency for the first time. In exchange, the Angels sent Noé Ramirez and a Player To Be Named Later or cash considerations to the Reds (the Angels also received cash considerations). -You can follow Brent on Twitter at @bmags94 and the podcast at @LockedOnAngels -Brent's written work can be found at Crashing the Pearly Gates -All highlight audio courtesy of Major League Baseball Learn more about your ad choices.
