Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Notches 26th save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday to record his 26th save of the season in a 7-6 win over the A's.

The 27-year-old has now converted seven straight save chances, and he's got a 2.25 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 13:6 K:BB in 12 innings since the All-Star break. Herrera's overall numbers for 2017 aren't up to the level he'd established over the last few seasons, but with the Royals clawing for a playoff spot, their closer could be poised for a very productive finish.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Picks up 25th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera walked one while pitching a scoreless inning Friday against the White Sox to pick up his 25th save.

It was a relative boring outing for the Royals' closer, who allowed a two-out walk to Omar Narvaez but otherwise got out of the inning without any hard hit balls. Herrera's 25th save moves him into a tie for fifth in the American League and is still largely considered one of the top closers in baseball.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Allows run but picks up 24th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera allowed a run on a hit and a walk but was able to secure his 24th save of the season in Thursday's 6-4 win over the Mariners. He struck out one batter.

Herrera had put together six consecutive scoreless appearances prior to Thursday's rocky inning, but despite the speed bump, the 27-year-old has proven himself to be one of the more reliable closers in the league recently and he clearly has a firm grip on the Royals' ninth-inning duties.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Navigates through trouble for 23rd save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera worked around a pair of walks and a hit in a scoreless inning to earn his 23rd save of the season Sunday against the Red Sox.

Herrera got a couple of outs after walking the leadoff hitter, only to load the bases for the top of the Boston order. He buckled down to get Mookie Betts, however, shutting the door on his fourth consecutive save opportunity. Herrera has battled inconsistency at times this season, but he has been scored upon just twice in his last 12 appearances and has been a contributing factor to the Royals' resurgence in the second half.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Collects 22nd save of campaign Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera pitched a scoreless inning on one hit while striking out one to earn his 22nd victory of the season Friday against the Red Sox.

Herrera was protecting a two-run lead, and despite allowing a baserunner, was able to close the door on the Red Sox at Fenway Park. Although his 4.17 ERA is high for a closer, his ability to collect saves makes him an extremely-valuable fantasy option.
