“Iglesias has lights out closer potential” “Bullpen help on the way”

The Atlanta Braves expanded their loaded group of pitchers by acquiring Raisel Iglesias from the Los Angeles Angels. Defending champion Braves refused to be complacent at the close, adding to an already strong position. The move was well received by Braves fans, who hoped the team would improve their roster to try and outperform the New York Mets.

The Braves are just 3.5 games behind the Mets in the race for the National League East crown. With another star pitcher, the Braves set themselves up for a win. Iglesias joins Max Fried, Spencer Strider, Charlie Morton and others on the invited pitching staff.

Jeff Passan was the first to break the news of this trade via Twitter.

Closer Raisel Iglesias was traded from the Angels to the Braves, a source told ESPN.

Atlanta Braves fans loved the change and now have their sights set on repeating themselves as World Series champions.

Adding such a high-profile pitcher to the bullpen makes the Braves even more dangerous on the track.

This may not have been the Angels pitcher that many had hoped would be traded as Shohei Ohtani remained unmoved by deadline date. Despite this, fans are still happy with the acquisition.

Repeating as champions is one of the hardest things in any sport, but the Braves have a real shot at pulling off the feat. Most of the players in the team were there at the last championship round and know what is important. Those who weren’t, like Matt Olson and Raisel Iglesias, are extremely talented to make up for their lack of playoff experience.

The Atlanta Braves have all the pieces they need to win the NL East and be in contention for another championship in October.

Both NL East teams are extremely talented and recently acquired star pitchers. The Braves improved with this trade for Iglesias, and the Mets improved with the return of Jacob deGrom. Jacob plays his first game of the 2022 season today against the Washington Nationals.

With all the talent already in these two teams, and now with the addition of star pitchers, this battle is unlikely to be decided any time soon. It’s an exciting prospect not knowing for sure which of these teams will win the division until late in the season.

The Atlanta Braves have expanded their roster tremendously and hope this will be enough to surpass the New York Mets.
