Nationals' Kelvin Herrera: To be temporary closer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera will be the Nationals' closer while Sean Doolittle is out with a toe injury, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Herrera has ample experience in the role, saving 57 games in his time with the Royals. He's an excellent replacement option for the Nationals, though he may not have the job for long, as Doolittle is eligible to return immediately following the All-Star break.

Nationals' Kelvin Herrera: Gets first win with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera (2-1) collected his first win with Washington, tossing a perfect eighth inning in Thursday 4-2 victory over Baltimore.

In two appearances since being traded to Washington, Herrera has thrown a pair of perfect innings with a win and a hold. Sean Doolittle locked down the save in this one as well, so it appears these two are each locked in to their respective roles.

Nationals' Kelvin Herrera: Notches first hold as Nat on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera pitched a perfect eighth inning to record his first hold of the season in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

He needed only six pitches (five strikes) to breeze through his first appearance in a Nats uniform, and Herrera seemed right at home in the setup role he held for the Royals for many years -- he averaged over 20 holds a season from 2012-16.

Nationals' Kelvin Herrera: Set to take on new role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera will transition to a new role in the bullpen following Monday's trade, after serving as Kansas City's closer for the past few seasons, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

As expected, Herrera is slated to serve as a high-leverage reliever, although he'll no longer be called upon to close out games after being shipped to Washington. Manager Dave Martinez stated Sean Doolittle is his closer, and that Herrera "will be asked to do some different things" out of the bullpen, per Janes.

Nationals' Kelvin Herrera: Dealt to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera was traded from the Royals to the Nationals on Monday for three minor leaguers, Jon Heyman of FanRagSports.com reports.

Herrera figures to solidify the back end of Washington's bullpen, as Sean Doolittle has served as a dominant closer for the first few months of the season. It appears unlikely that Herrera would take over as the closer, but he'll certainly be called upon in high-leverage situations, perhaps as an eighth-inning setup man. He's posted a 1.05 ERA and 0.82 WHIP with a 22:2 K:BB over 25.2 innings this season.
