Herrera was optioned to Double-A Trenton on Thursday.
He was recalled Wednesday to add some bullpen depth during the Yankees west coast swing, but a tough outing against the Angels earned him a trip back to Trenton. Herrera allowed a home run and two earned runs over 2.0 innings against the Halos while fanning two batters. He'll likely rejoin the rotation down at Trenton upon his return.
Herrera was recalled from Double-A Trenton on Wednesday.
Herrera was dominating Double-A before being promoted to the Yankees, as the 22-year-old worked a 1.07 ERA and 0.76 WHIP to a 7-0 record through 50.1 innings (eight starts). He's worked almost exclusively as a starter in the minors, so it's unclear how the big club intend to use him upon his arrival. He could possibly earn a spot start for the injured CC Sabathia or even be used out of the bullpen after Yankees relievers logged seven innings in Tuesday's extra-innings loss.
Herrera (shoulder) fired 5.1 scoreless innings in his season debut with Double-A Trenton on Sunday.
The 22-year-old was sidelined since spring training due to a bout of shoulder inflammation, but Sunday's outing seems to indicate that there aren't any lingering effects of that ailment. Herrera should continue to log starts with Double-A Trenton for much of the season, although more starts like this could get him a promotion to Triple-A somewhat soon.
Herrera (shoulder) was placed on the 7-day disabled list Thursday.
Herrera dealt with shoulder inflammation throughout spring training, and it appears the issue has yet to subside. It's unclear how much longer he'll be forced to sit out, but things should become clearer as he ramps up his throwing again.
