2015

2008

Herrera was heralded as a potential frontline starter when the Pirates signed him as a Cuban defector back in December of 2006. Pitching for Double-A Altoona in 2007, the 27-year-old righty failed to impress, posting a 6-9 mark with a 4.69 ERA and 1.469 WHIP. Late in the season Herrera was throwing his fastball mostly in the mid 80's, not the 90's, as many had been led to believe. At this point, the three-year deal worth $1.9 million looms as a disappointment within a franchise that has seen more than its fair share of losing. Perhaps Herrera will continue to adapt to professional ball, but right now his future doesn't look too promising as anything more than a potential stopgap starter or middle reliever.
