Kansas City Royals RP Kelvin Herrera will share setup duties with RPs Aaron Crow, Tim Collins and Luke Hochevar as a bridge to RP Greg Holland now that Herrera has rejoined the parent club, according to manager Ned Yost. "Ill kind of go on match-ups in the seventh and eighth innings. But will he fit in with those guys to get us to Holland? Yeah."
Fantasy Tip: Sounds like Yost is willing to trust Herrera with important innings right away, something someone of Herrera's talent should prove worthy of. He's really kind of a wait-and-see option, except for in deep AL-only leagues, for now, however.

Kansas City Royals 2B Johnny Giavotella and RP Everett Teaford have been optioned to Triple-A Omaha. The club plans to recall 2B Chris Getz and RP Kelvin Herrera to replace them.
Fantasy Tip: Giavotella was called up just a few weeks ago, but he's done nothing to give KC the impression that he's the solution at the keystone. Getz probably isn't, either, although he posted a .313/.313/.422 slash line in 14 games at Omaha following his demotion last month. Perhaps he's worth an AL-only roster spot. Herrera may be, if he's ready to avoid walking people and serving up home run balls. The right-hander has a bright future as a back-end reliever, but this year has been a struggle.

Kansas City Royals RP Kelvin Herrera is under consideration to be recalled in the next few days, according to a club official.
Fantasy Tip: Herrera has really struggled with his control and the home run ball at the major league level this year, but he has an insanely good arm and no extensive history of these struggles. KC would like to see him reclaim his spot as the setup man at some point.

The Kansas City Royals have optioned RP Kelvin Herrera to Triple-A Omaha. Manager Ned Yost said Herrera needed to work on his mechanics and gain confidence in using all of his pitches in a less stressful setting. "He needs to incorporate his secondary pitches - which are both plus pitches, his curveball and his changeup - into his repertoire, adjust his mechanics a little bit," Yost said. "He got to the point by not having confidence in his fastball to where he was trying to overthrow it, so he needs to just smooth his mechanics a little bit and really just go down and have some success." RP Louis Coleman was recalled from Omaha to replace Herrera on the 25-man roster.
