Royals | Kelvin Herrera may not be available for Game 4

Sat, 25 Oct 2014 10:46:43 -0700

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.
