Kelvin Herrera pitches scoreless eighth in Nationals debut Tuesday

Kelvin Herrera pitched a scoreless eighth inning in the Nationals' 9-7 win over the Orioles Tuesday. He picked up his first hold of the season.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Herrera will serve as a setup man for Sean Doolittle. He'll be a fine source of holds in leagues that use holds as a category, but Herrera is no longer going to be getting saves with his new club.

Kelvin Herrera being traded to Nationals

Kansas City Royals closer Kelvin Herrera is headed to the Washington Nationals in a trade, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports. Outfielder Blake Perkins, third baseman Kelvin Gutierrez, and right-hander Yohanse Morel are headed to the Royals in the deal, according to MLB insider Jon Heyman.

Fantasy Impact

Nationals closer Sean Doolittle is having an excellent season, so Herrera is likely joining Washington's bullpen as a setup man. Herrera's value will take a hit in league's that do not reward holds, but he goes from one of the worst teams in baseball to one expected to contend for a playoff birth. The Nationals already have Ryan Madson and Brandon Kintzler as late-inning options, but with the former recently back from a stint on the disabled list and the latter there now, Herrera should step in as the top option for day's when Doolittle is not available.

Kelvin Herrera traded to Nationals

Kevin Herrera is being traded to the Nationals, per John Heyman. The Royals will receive minor league prospects in return, but not prized Nationals outfielders Soto or Robles.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera has been fantastic for Kansas City this year, registering 14 saves with a 1.05 ERA and .82 WHIP. This is a tough blow for owners; Herrera will likely move into a set up role for Washington, behind established closer Sean Doolittle.

Kelvin Herrera blows save on Tuesday

Kelvin Herrera had a one-run lead going into the the ninth inning on Tuesday, but promptly gave it away to the first batter he faced, Tucker Barnhart. He also walked two batters in the inning, but didn't allow any of them to score. Kevin McCarthy came in to pitch the tenth inning and imploded as the Royals fell to the Reds, 5-1.

Fantasy Impact

It was just Herrera's second blown save of the season, but frustrating nonetheless as Kansas City save opportunities can be few and far between. Still, Herrera sports a pristine 1.05 ERA and .82 WHIP, and should remain active in all lineups.

Kelvin Herrera secures win over Oakland

Kelvin Herrera allowed one hit and struck out two batters against the Athletics on Saturday night. The effort was good for his 14th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Herrera continues to be a force in the ninth for the Royals, but is underutilized on the rebuilding Kansas City roster. There's no shortage on need for late inning relief across the league, so hopefully owners will continue to see him close out games wherever he lands.
