Player Outlook
Ivan Herrera took a big step forward last season at Triple-A Memphis, sporting a .291/.451/.500 batting line with 10 home runs and 11 stolen bases. He was also very productive during his brief time in the majors, slashing .297/.409/.351 with a 61.5 percent hard-hit rate in 13 contests. Herrera's strike-zone discipline has long been a strength, and he took it to another level in 2023 at Memphis with a 20 percent walk rate and 20.5 percent strikeout rate. His power hasn't fully unlocked to this point, due in large part to a bloated groundball rate, but given that he's still just 23 that part of his game might still grow. With Andrew Knizner non-tendered, Herrera is in line to serve as Willson Contreras' understudy in 2024. It's a role which garnered 63 starts and 241 plate appearances for Knizner last season, and a similar workload for Herrera seems likely. That's not enough playing time for Herrera to be very fantasy relevant, but he would have some upside if pushed into more responsibilities.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Resting for Wednesday's contest

    Herrera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Herrera caught three innings earlier in the day after the Cardinals resumed Tuesday's suspended game in the bottom of the sixth and emerged with a 3-1 victory, so he'll just be getting some rest in Wednesday's regularly scheduled game. Pedro Pages will get the starting nod behind the dish.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: On bench Tuesday

    Herrera is not in the lineup Tuesday versus the Angels. Since last taking a seat Thursday, Herrera has slashed .467/.556/.467 in a four-game span. In his absence, Pedro Pages has the start at catcher and will bat eighth.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Takes seat Thursday

    Herrera isn't in the Cardinals' lineup for Thursday's game against the Brewers, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Herrera will get a day off Thursday after going 2-for-4 during Tuesday's game against the Mets. In his absence, Pedro Pages will pick up a start behind the plate and bat eighth.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Set for primary catching role

    Herrera will serve as the Cardinals' designated hitter and cleanup batter in Wednesday's game against the Mets. Though he'll be included in the lineup in a non-defensive role Wednesday, Herrera is expected to serve as the Cardinals' primary backstop for the foreseeable future after Willson Contreras was placed on the 10-day injured list with a fractured forearm, an injury that will likely keep him out for 6-to-8 weeks. Pedro Pages was called up from Triple-A Memphis in a corresponding move and will start behind the plate Wednesday, but Herrera should see the bulk of the work at catcher while Contreras is on the shelf. Herrera has logged 76 plate appearances so far this season, hitting .232 with three home runs, 11 RBI and seven runs.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Absent from lineup

    Herrera is not in the lineup for Monday's game in Detroit. Herrera's bat has slowed and with it so has his playing time, as he's now started just four of the last 10 games and is 0-for-15 at the plate over that span. Willson Contreras is catching Monday, while Paul Goldschmidt is getting a start at designated hitter.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Will continue to get regular reps

    The Cardinals will look to continue giving Herrera consistent playing time even after Willson Contreras (hand) is available to catch, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports. Contreras hopes to be able to catch this weekend in Arizona after missing four games and then being limited to designated hitter duty in the last two contests. With Lars Nootbaar (ribs) also due back Friday, it creates a bit of a playing time logjam for the Cards. Herrera, though, has earned regular reps, putting up an .875 OPS with three homers and seven RBI in nine games. The 23-year-old should continue to be worth using as a second fantasy catcher as long as he's getting at-bats.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Homers again Wednesday

    Herrera went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Phillies. Herrera got the Cardinals on the board with his second-inning homer. He's gone deep twice over the last three games and now has three homers, seven RBI and six runs scored across 34 plate appearances. As long as Willson Contreras (hand) continues to be unable to catch, Herrera is in line for a larger role behind the dish.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Swats second homer

    Herrera went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Monday's 5-3 extra-inning loss to the Phillies. Herrera has gotten an extended run of playing time while Willson Contreras (hand) remains out of the lineup. Over his last five contests, Herrera has gone 7-for-20 with two homers and four RBI. The 23-year-old gives the Cardinals another option for the designated hitter spot when the team is at full health, and he may force his way into the lineup even Contreras is healthy if he continues to hit well.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Homers in comeback win

    Herrera went 2-for-5 with a solo home run, an RBI single and additional run scored in Thursday's 8-5 win over the Marlins. Herrera opened the scoring in the second inning with his homer, and his other hit sparked the Cardinals' five-run rally in the seventh inning. The catcher is filling in while Willson Contreras (hand) is unavailable. This was Herrera's second multi-hit effort in a row, and he's now 4-for-12 with four RBI and two runs scored over four contests this season. He's also yet to draw a walk while striking out five times, so there's still room for improvement with plate discipline.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Steps in for injured Contreras

    Herrera will start at catcher and bat cleanup in Thursday's game against the Marlins. Herrera will pick up his second straight start behind the plate in Thursday's home opener. Both Herrera and top backstop Willson Contreras -- who served as the Cardinals' designated hitter -- were included in the lineup in Wednesday's loss to the Padres, but Contreras was hit by a pitch in left hand during the contest and is dealing with swelling a day later. Contreras is scheduled to undergo X-rays later Thursday as the Cardinals look to assess whether he's dealing with anything more than inflammation and soreness. For now, Contreras is being viewed as day-to-day, but Herrera could be in line for an extended run as the Cardinals' primary catcher if Contreras' injury is significant enough to force him to the injured list.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Returns to lineup

    Herrera (shoulder) is starting at catcher and batting seventh for the Cardinals on Tuesday against the Twins in his return to Grapefruit League action, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Herrera missed a few days with a "stinger" in his left (non-throwing) shoulder but is ready to roll now. He will open the season as Willson Contreras' backup at catcher.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Managing shoulder issue

    Herrera isn't starting Sunday's spring game against the Marlins as scheduled due to shoulder pain, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. The 23-year-old has just 24 big-league games under his belt but is poised to share catching duties with Willson Contreras in 2024. It's unclear at this point if the injury is expected to affect Herrera's availability for Opening Day.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Optioned to Triple-A

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday. Herrera will head back to Memphis after he spent nearly three weeks with the major-league squad, going 8-for-23 with a double, two RBI and three runs scored over eight contests. With Andrew Knizner back as the team's backup catcher, Herrera will look to continue to impress at Triple-A in order to return to St. Louis' roster later this season.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Three hits in win

    Herrera went 3-for-3 with a run scored and a hit-by-pitch in Saturday's 9-6 win over the Nationals. Herrera has done everything asked of him so far, going 6-for-12 with a double, two RBI and three runs scored over his three games while filling in for Andrew Knizner (groin) on the 26-man roster. Herrera's playing time has been limited with Willson Contreras occupying a starting role, but John Denton of MLB.com reports manager Oliver Marmol is considering keeping three catchers around once Knizner is activated from the injured list.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Called up Wednesday

    Herrera was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday. Herrera will return to the big leagues after he was optioned to Memphis ahead of the 2023 campaign. The catcher has produced a .308 average with eight homers, 44 RBI, 39 runs and seven stolen bases over 185 at-bats in 50 games in Triple-A this year. Herrera will now operate as the primary reserve option behind Willson Contreras after Andrew Knizner (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Withdraws from WBC

    Herrera will remain in camp with the Cardinals instead of playing for Panama at the World Baseball Classic, John Denton of MLB.com reports. Herrera withdrew from the WBC on Saturday, and he'll now turn his focus on competing for the backup catcher spot behind Willson Contreras. Herrera went 2-for-18 with one RBI, two walks and eight strikeouts across 22 plate appearances in the majors last season. He also hit .274/.381/.402 with six home runs, six stolen bases and 34 RBI in 65 games with Triple-A Memphis. Andrew Knizner is more likely to open the season as the Cardinals' backup catcher, but Herrera will try to force the issue with a strong spring.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Sent down Monday

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday. Herrera was called up Saturday to provide depth behind the dish, but he didn't appear in either of the last two games. While he'll remain on the taxi squad, the 22-year-old will lose his spot on the active roster after Yadier Molina (personal) was reinstated from the restricted list.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Heads back to minors

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Friday. The 22-year-old joined the Cardinals for the two-game series against the Blue Jays this week and will now return to Triple-A. Herrera didn't appear in either contest for St. Louis and is unlikely to be a factor in the majors the rest of the year. He has a .295/.385/.432 slash line with three home runs and 21 RBI in 37 games for Memphis this season.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Returns to big leagues

    Herrera was called up from Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday. Herrera will make his return to the big leagues after joining the Cardinals for a 11-game stint earlier this summer. He'll replace Austin Romine on the active roster for the team's two-game series in Toronto. Herrera owns a .295 average with three homers, 21 RBI, 22 runs and two stolen bases over 139 at-bats over 37 games with Memphis this season. He'll look to improve upon the .111 average he produced over his first 11 career major-league contests.

  • Cardinals' Ivan Herrera: Heads back to Triple-A

    Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Memphis on Monday. Herrera joined the big club for a second time in mid-June, but he picked up just two hits over 18 at-bats, so he will head back to the minors for the time being. Herrera is one of the Cardinals' better prospects, so he could get another shot with the big club before the campaign comes to a close, particularly if Yadier Molina (knee) continues to miss time.
