Royals have no plans to convert Kelvin Herrera to starter
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera pitched in the Dominican Winter League this offseason, making five appearances, including three starts. However, the Royals aren't converting Herrera, who went 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 9 1/3 innings, into a starter.

"The mindset there is just to continue to develop his pitches and continue to build confidence in his breaking ball and, throwing multiple innings in each outing as opposed to one inning, it lends itself better to do that," assistant general manager J.J. Picollo told MLB.com.

Royals mulling recall for Kelvin Herrera
by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com

The Royals are considering calling up relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera, the Kansas City Star reports.

Herrera was awful in 29 games with the big club earlier this year, as he allowed a 5.20 ERA and served up eight home runs. He has dialed it in with Triple-A Omaha, however, as he has 17 strikeouts against two walks in 11 2/3 scoreless innings -- which means, of course, no home runs.

It's unclear when the Royals would make the move, but the Royals open the second half Friday against Detroit, so likely there won't be a decision until then.

Kelvin Herrera moved to Double-A
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Royals pitcher Kelvin Herrera has been moved to Double-A so he can pitch during the Triple-A All-Star break, according to the Kansas City Star.

Herrera had a rough start to the season in the majors. Through 27 2/3 innings, he had a 5.20 ERA. Herrera was demoted to Triple-A twice to work out his issues. He's been much better in the minors, but the team doesn't want him to miss out on extra work. In 16 innings, Herrera has a 1.03 ERA at Triple-A Omaha. He'll likely get some work over the Triple-A break and return to the club once games resume.
