Kelvin Herrera blows up against Tigers

Kelvin Herrera, pitching on a 102 degree fever, gave up a two-run homer to Mike Mahtook of the Tigers in the top of the ninth Wednesday, blowing a save in the process. The Royals came back to win 4-3 in the bottom of the ninth.

Fantasy Impact

Only Ned Yost knows why Herrera was sent out there with that high of a fever. Hopefully he can recover soon and get back to establishing a better second half. Herrera's ERA now sits at 4.75 with 36 Ks in 36 innings.

Kelvin Herrera picks up win on Sunday against Rangers

Kelvin Herrera faced the minimum in the top of the ninth Sunday, striking one out in the process. The Royals then came up in the bottom of the ninth to win the game, getting Herrera his second win on the season. Herrera also pitched 2/3 innings on Saturday, striking out both batters.

Fantasy Impact

It is good to see Herrera perform consistently on back-to-back days in non-save situations, in which he has struggled so far in 2017. With the Nationals acquiring two Athletics' relievers Sunday, Herrera looks likely to stay put. His ERA is creeping down into the low 4's with 36 strike outs in 35 2/3 innings pitched.

Kelvin Herrera walks in winning run

Kelvin Herrera was brought on to take down Cody Bellinger, but instead he walked in the winning run as the Royals fell to the Dodgers 5-4 in extra innings.

Fantasy Impact

A rough ending for the Royals and Herrera. Herrera had been pitching well up until this mishap. It remains to be seen if he will be traded to another contender before the trading deadline. Herrera now owns a 4.50 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 34 innings pitched.

Kelvin Herrera locks down 19th save

Kelvin Herrera finally pitched against the minimum amount of batters in an inning in securing his 19th save. He struck out a batter as well.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera has been solid, but not great, this year. In save situations, he has done well- in non-save situations, not so much. If Herrera gets traded to an elite team such as the Nationals, his stock would immediately rise. Look to buy low on him right now. His season numbers stand at 33 strikeouts in 34 innings to go along with a 4.50 ERA and 1.26 WHIP.

Kelvin Herrera throws scoreless ninth inning on Sunday

Kelvin Herrera pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Twins on Sunday, allowing a hit and a walk while striking out one.

Fantasy Impact

It was not a save situation, but it was good to see Herrera bounce back after a rough outing the day before. He's had a disappointing season thus far, with a 4.64 ERA and 1.30 WHIP, but he remains a top trade target for many reliever-hungry teams. If he does get dealt, hopefully it's to a team that is in need of a closer.
