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.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Blows save against Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera gave up a home run in the ninth to blow the save against the Reds on Tuesday, walking two and striking out zero.

Herrera came in to preserve a 1-0 lead and surrendered a home run to Reds catcher Tucker Barnhart. Herrera would eventually need 31 pitches (15 for strikes) to get through the inning, the most pitches he's thrown in an outing this season. The reliever had made nine consecutive appearances without allowing a run, and still holds onto an excellent 1.05 ERA for the year. Herrera is now 14-for-16 in save chances and sports a 0.82 WHIP and .207 batting average against.

Royals' Kelvin Herrera: Picks up 14th save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Herrera allowed one hit and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday to record his 14th save of the season in a 2-0 win over the A's.

The Royals have only 22 wins on the year, but Herrera has saved almost two-thirds of them and been nearly perfect while doing so, posting a 0.73 ERA and 22:0 K:BB through 24.2 innings. A trade into a setup role on a contender remains a possibility, but the 28-year-old should remain a strong closing option as long as he's in a Kansas City uniform.
