Kelvin Herrera earns back-to-back saves

Kelvin Herrera has had a nice weekend so far, converting both of his save chances against the Indians. He has pitched two innings, struck out three hitters, and allowed two hits.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera had a few rough outings in a row last week, but has bounced back nicely. Herrera has finally brought his ERA back down to sub-4 levels (3.86), and striking out 22 batters in 21 innings. His 3.27 xFIP shows that his stats are likely to get even better. Herrera's eleven saves are tied for eighth in all of major league baseball.

Kelvin Herrera has another poor outing

Kelvin Herrera blew a save Friday, surrendering a two-run homer to Kenny Vargas. In total, he allowed three hits and struck out two.

Fantasy Impact

Maybe the trade rumors are affecting Herrera. Either way, his past two outings leave much to be desired. Hopefully Herrera can get back on track and lower his now sub-optimal 4.50 ERA.

Kelvin Herrera allows run in non-save situation

Kelvin Herrera had not worked since Sunday, so Ned Yost decided to trot Herrera out in a non-save situation. It was not pretty, as he allowed a run on three hits. However, he did strike out two.

Fantasy Impact

As we often see with closers, Herrera did not fare well in this non-save situation. There's not too much to worry about though, as Herrera has struck out 15 hitters in 17 innings with a WHIP of 1.12. His ERA of 3.71 is right in line with his xFIP of 3.69. Hopefully Herrera can lower that ERA going forward.

Kelvin Herrera allows a run in non-save situation

Kelvin Herrera allowed three hits in the ninth inning on Thursday night, but struck out two and limited the damage to one run. He's allowed runs in consecutive appearances.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera hasn't quite been lights out this season, posting a 3.71 ERA and eight saves. He'll be fine, and could potentially be a huge trade chip at the deadline for a team like Washington this summer.

Kelvin Herrera avoids meltdown for eighth save

Kelvin Herrera backed into his eighth save on the year, and fifth this week, on Sunday. He allowed one run on three hits and struck out one.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera got a bit lucky in this one, stranding two runners on in a one-run game to close it out. Nonetheless, he earned his eighth save, and is in a great position going forward for saves. The Royals are officially hitting again.
