|Kelvin Herrera ends scoreless streak, takes loss vs. White Sox |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/17/14) Royals pitcher Kelvin Herrera was hung with a loss Tuesday, allowing two earned runs on two hits and a walk in two-thirds of an inning in his team's 7-5 defeat against the White Sox.
Though Herrera (3-3) was the pitcher charged with the loss, he wasn't the one who gave up the decisive hit, as the following pitcher surrendered a bases-loaded triple to turn a one-run lead into a two-run deficit. Herrera owns a 1.55 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 55:24 K:BB ratio in 64 innings after allowing his first runs since June 24, ending a string of 30 straight scoreless appearances.

|Royals have no plans to convert Kelvin Herrera to starter |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/29/14) Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera pitched in the Dominican Winter League this offseason, making five appearances, including three starts. However, the Royals aren't converting Herrera, who went 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 9 1/3 innings, into a starter.
"The mindset there is just to continue to develop his pitches and continue to build confidence in his breaking ball and, throwing multiple innings in each outing as opposed to one inning, it lends itself better to do that," assistant general manager J.J. Picollo told MLB.com.
|Kelvin Herrera expected to be recalled Friday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/18/13) The Royals are expected to recall pitcher Kelvin Herrera from Triple-A Omaha Friday, according to multiple reports. Herrera, who was placed on the taxi squad Thursday, is 3-5 with a 5.20 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 33:15 K:BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings with the Royals.
|Royals mulling recall for Kelvin Herrera |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(7/17/13) The Royals are considering calling up relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera, the Kansas City Star reports.
Herrera was awful in 29 games with the big club earlier this year, as he allowed a 5.20 ERA and served up eight home runs. He has dialed it in with Triple-A Omaha, however, as he has 17 strikeouts against two walks in 11 2/3 scoreless innings -- which means, of course, no home runs.
It's unclear when the Royals would make the move, but the Royals open the second half Friday against Detroit, so likely there won't be a decision until then.
