Analysis: Herrera has been a bit shaky in the closer's role so far, as he blew his other save chance by giving up a game-tying homer to Houston's Jake Marisnick on Sunday. Of equal concern is the hard-throwing righty's lack of strikeouts, as he's fanned just one batter in three innings of work.

Analysis: Herrera, a second-year arbitration-eligible player, will serve as Kansas City's closer following the team's trade of Wade Davis to the Cubs. The hard-throwing 27-year-old saved 12 games with Davis on the disabled list for part of last season and finished with a 2.75 ERA and a career-high 86 strikeouts in 72 innings.
