Reds finalizing deal for Cuban right hander Raciel Iglesias

The Cincinnati Reds are working on a deal to sign Cuban right hander Racel Iglesias.

A deal between the two sides is reported to be five or six years and in the $15 million range. Iglesias threw for major league teams two weeks ago.

Igelsias projects as a big league relief pitcher. The 24-year-old surely will need some time in the minor leagues but could become an option for the Reds later this season.
