Kelvin Herrera blows yet another save

Kelvin Herrera was summoned to close Thursday's game due to Scott Alexander having pitched three days in a row, and he coughed up a 2-1 lead against the magnificent Indians. Francisco Lindor doubled to left, driving in the tying run. The Indians would later win in the 10th.

Fantasy Impact

His ERA has increased to 4.56 to along with a ballooning WHIP of 1.43.Herrera has been horrible for the past month, and should be dropped in all formats.

Kelvin Herrera removed from closer's role

Kelvin Herrera has been nudged from the closer's role, and manager Ned Yost will be using a committee in the form of Scott Alexander, Brandon Maurer, and Mike Minor to fill the void.

Fantasy Impact

None of these names should inspire confidence from fantasy owners, but Alexander has been the most consistent reliever for the Royals, and he has recorded a slew of one-out saves recently. Maurer had two save opportunities recently, blowing one. Yost will probably ride the hot hand and play matchups, so it will be tough to determine who gets each save. Feel free to drop Herrera in the meantime.

Kelvin Herrera has another meltdown Thursday

Kelvin Herrera surrendered three runs on three hits and two walks (one intentional) while blowing his fourth save of the season Thursday. The Royals lost to the Twins 4-2.

Fantasy Impact

This sounds like a repeat update, but Herrera has just been that bad his past several outings. He seems to be able to get two outs and just cannot lock down the final one. Manager Ned Yost seems comfortable still giving Herrera the ninth, so fantasy owners just need to be patient and hope he can right the ship. Herrera now has a 4.24 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 51 strikeouts in 51 innings.

Kelvin Herrera now available

Kelvin Herrera is now available for the Royals to use, as his arm now feels ''pretty normal.''

Fantasy Impact

This is not exactly what you want to hear from the Royals closer, given that he has had this injury twice in the past month. However, the Royals have not had any save opportunities over the past few days, so hopefully this has given Herrera a few extra days to recover. Fantasy owners do not have much choice but to ride his 26 saves and hope for the best.

Kelvin Herrera likely to be sidelined for three days

Kelvin Herrera is again dealing with a strain in his lower right forearm. He got an MRI on the injury after melting down against the Twins on Friday. The injury is not near his elbow, and he has full range of motion and strength, so he is not expected to go on the DL.

Fantasy Impact

This is good news for fantasy owners, but Herrera simply cannot be trusted until he converts a clean save chance. With the Royals in free fall, they may be conservative with Herrera. Manager Ned Yost has said he will use a closer-by-committee in the meantime. Brandon Maurer and Scott Alexander figure to be in the mix.
