Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera agreed to a one-year, $7,937,500 deal with the Royals on Friday to avoid arbitration, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

This was his last offseason as an arbitration-eligible player. Herrera lost his role as the ninth-inning man in early September during the midst of his worst season to date. The right-hander posted a 4.25 ERA and 1.35 WHIP over 59.1 innings, but still recorded 26 saves on the campaign. Heading into 2018, there's a good chance Herrera will get another chance as closer, but don't expect a long leash if he begins to struggle.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Blows chance to get closing role back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera was tagged with his fifth blown save after allowing a run on two hits during the ninth inning of Thursday's extra-innings loss to Cleveland.

Herrera, who was recently removed from the closer's role, got his chance to earn the ninth-inning gig back, but fell flat after allowing a two-out, RBI double to Francisco Lindor. Thursday may be the straw that breaks the camel's back when it comes to Herrera being used again to close out games.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Makes first appearance in new setup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera pitched a clean eighth inning Wednesday against Detroit in his first appearance since being removed from the closer's role.

As the Baseball God's would have it, Scott Alexander blew the save and lost the game in the ninth inning, leaving the door slightly cracked for Herrera to regain his prior job. Manager Ned Yost is planning to try a few arms in the ninth inning, but with a playoff race in full swing, the skipper may think twice about leaving Herrera -- who converted 26 of 30 saves earlier this year -- in a setup role.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Removed from closer's role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera will relinquish his role as the closer in the Kansas City bullpen, according to manager Ned Yost, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

Herrera gave up three runs during Thursday's blown save, costing the Royals a big game against the Twins. That marked the first appearance for the right-hander since Sept. 1, as he's been dealing with a forearm strain over the past week, ever since blowing another save against the Twins last Friday. Yost said that Mike Minor, Scott Alexander and Brandon Maurer will split the ninth-inning duties, while Herrera likely transitions to a set-up role for the foreseeable future.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Struggles in return from forearm strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera (3-3) took the loss while suffering his fourth blown save Thursday against the Twins after allowing three runs on three hits with two walks and one strikeout while only recording two outs.

Herrera failed spectacularly at holding a 2-1 lead despite not surrendering a single extra-base hit. A Brian Dozier sac fly tied the game after a pair of singles and a walk loaded the bases, then Jorge Polanco broke the tie with a two-run single following an intentional walk to Joe Mauer. Herrera was pulled after the Polanco hit in favor of Brandon Maurer, who was able to stop the bleeding. It's possible Herrera's forearm strain is still bothering him, so tread carefully.
