Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Used in eighth inning of tie-game Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera pitched in the eighth inning of a 2-2 game Wednesday in Toronto. He took the loss, after allowing a pair of runs on three hits despite striking out the side.

The inning began with strikeouts of Ezequiel Carrera and Josh Donaldson before the three hits did the damage and ultimately tagged Herrera with the loss. Joakim Soria was presumably available, as he had not pitched since July 2, while Herrera's usage Wednesday may be an indication that Royals manager Ned Yost intends to give Soria the first crack at the closer role in the absence of Wade Davis.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Could see save chances
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Herrera could see save chances with Wade Davis (forearm) landing on the 15-day DL on Tuesday.

According to Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star, manager Ned Yost was noncommittal when discussing Davis' replacement, saying "everyone moves up a slot," but the team will "mix and match" in the later innings. Herrera has served as the primary setup man of late and the peripherals significantly favor him over Joakim Soria, but Soria does have a wealth of experience closing games in the major leagues (203 career saves). Davis said he hopes to be back after the minimum 15 days.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Strikes out one during Tuesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kelvin Herrera hit a batter but collected one strikeout in 0.2 scoreless innings during a win over Detroit on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old reliever has yet to give up a run in 7.1 innings of work this season. Since breaking into the majors in 2011, Herrera has accumulated a 2.53 ERA with 284 strikeouts in 291.2 innings. He has been even better the past two seasons, and recently began throwing a hybrid breaking ball that he unveiled in last year's ALDS against the Astros which has made him nearly untouchable. Since that time, Herrera has struck out 39 percent of his opponents and has only given up one earned run in 19 appearances.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Having strong spring
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Herrera threw a scoreless inning in Saturday's split-squad win over Seattle. He's given up one run in six innings this spring with five strikeouts.

Herrera led the Royals in holds last season with 21 and struck out 64 batters in 69 innings. He looks in midseason form and will reprise his setup role.
