Kansas City Royals RP Kelvin Herrera (illness) has been infected with the chickenpox virus and could miss at least two weeks, according to team officials. An examination of Herrera Monday, Aug. 31, confirmed the results after Herrera left the team over the weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Even in a non-closing role for KC, Herrera was worth owning in deeper fantasy leagues because of his solid numbers in an excellent bullpen. Now that he could miss much of the final month of the season, he should be left to the waiver wire.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost is uncertain if RP Kelvin Herrera will be available to pitch in Game 4 of the World Series Saturday, Oct. 25. "Look, we're in the World Series. Everybody is available, but we don't want to be stupid either," Yost said. "He may be available for an out or he may not. He may just say, 'you know what, I need a break.' The one thing that we do really well as a staff is we communicate. Our relievers and our starting pitchers know that we have complete trust in them. If they tell us they can't go, we trust it. We don't feel that they're soft. We don't feel like they're sissies. We know that they know their body. We'll see how he feels (Saturday) when he comes out and plays catch." Herrera threw 32 pitches over 1 2/3 innings in Game 2 and 27 pitches over 1 1/3 innings in Game 3.
