Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said RPs Tim Collins and Aaron Crow will remain the team's setup men even though they have been inconsistent over the last month. Collins' ERA has gone from 2.02 to 4.09 since June 22. Crow has allowed seven of his last 10 inherited runners to score.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said he's looking to "mix and match" different relievers in the eighth inning to give RP Kelvin Herrera a chance to pitch in lower-leverage situations. RPs Aaron Crow, Tim Collins, Luke Hochevar or even Bruce Chen could become the primary setup man to RP Greg Holland while Herrera works on some things. Herrera allowed a game-winning homer Sunday, May 19, and it was his eighth homer allowed in his last 14 innings.
Fantasy Tip: There's no telling who might emerge as the new eighth-inning setup man, or if Herrera will get the job back rather quickly. Herrera can be dropped now in most leagues as Holland's primary handcuff while he works out his problems in allowing the long ball.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost thinks the team can get away with a seven-man bullpen this year, which is one less than they carried for much of last season. RPs Greg Holland, Kelvin Herrera, Tim Collins and Aaron Crow are locks, and Ps Luke Hochevar, Bruce Chen and Luis Mendoza could be battling for the final spot. Hochevar, Chen and Mendoza are also all out of minor league options.
