The Los Angeles Angels are reportedly close to agreeing a four-year contract with Raisel Iglesias, as per Ken Rosenthal. However, the Angels have not yet made any confirmation of the deal.

Iglesias, who played for the Angels last season, is currently the top free agent reliever in this offseason. The 31-year-old initially rejected the Angels' one-year, $18.4 million qualifying offer earlier in the offseason, which made him a free agent.

When looking at Iglesias' 2021 season, it is clear to see why the Angels have made an effort to bring him back. 2021 was arguably the pitcher's best season of his career as he was one of the league's best closers.

His recorded 34 saves were the second-most in the American League and the fifth-most in the Majors. He maintained an average of 2.57 for earned runs allowed per nine innings and had 103 strikeouts in 70 innings. Additionally, he struck out 38% of the batters he faced and only walked 4%. With his impressive performances last season, Iglesias earned a Cy Young vote for the first time in his career.

The Angels have already completed some business during this offseason after signing Noah Syndergaard and Aaron Loup. However, they will need to finalize the deal for Raisel Iglesias soon. A lockout is expected to begin on Wednesday, meaning the Angels must complete the deal, including the physical, before then.
