Kelvin Herrera snags two saves in three days

After locking down his third save Friday, Kelvin Herrera struck out one batter en route to his fourth save Sunday. He threw 13 pitches and didn't allow a baserunner.

Fantasy Impact

Five wins for the Royals and Herrera has locked down four of them. The Royals may not rack up the victories this year, but it looks like Herrera will be getting the nod more often than not when Kansas City has the lead.

Kelvin Herrera notches third save on Friday

Royals closer Kelvin Herrera shut the door on Detroit after Kansas City took the lead in the the top of the ninth inning. The win snapped a nine game losing streak for the Royals.

Fantasy Impact

Save opportunities might not be bountiful for Herrera, but the Royals aren't going to be winning games by large margins, either. Kansas City has four wins on the season, and Herrera has secured three of them. He seems to be over his woes from last year, so owners should start him with confidence moving forward and hope the Royals can keep games close.

Kelvin Herrera pitches another stellar non-save appearance

Kelvin Herrera struck out both batters he faced in a non-save relief appearance in a 5-4 loss to Toronto.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera continues to be stellar for the Royals, coming in after Kevin McCarthy put runners on the corners with one out in the bottom of the ninth and punching out both batters he faced. Herrera really has been nearly unhittable in very limited action no thanks to the Royals' anemic lineup, working a still pristine 0.00 ERA, 0.43 WHIP with eight punch outs in just 4 2/3 innings. It's hard to justify rostering him despite his quality as he simply doesn't get many opportunities to pitch let alone close out games. Still, quality closers are very difficult to come by and the Royals started last season cold as ice as well before heating up so a hold here is still advisable.

Kelvin Herrera pitches a flawless ninth inning

Kelvin Herrera needed only nine pitches to secure his second save of the season. He struck out one.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera continues to put his disastrous spring training, and 2017 season, behind him. He has yet to walk a batter or allow a run in 3 1/3 innings of work.
