2019 Fantasy Outlook
Herrera entered 2018 needing to show the Royals' brass he was healthy and effective, building up his trade value. Check, check and check as Herrera twirled a sparkling 1.05 ERA and 0.82 WHIP, fanning 22 in 25.2 innings while notching 14 saves through June 14. That was enough for the Nationals to deal for him. Herrera began in a setup role before stepping in at closer when Sean Doolittle broke his toe. Unfortunately, Herrera also hit the DL in early August with right shoulder tightness. After a two-week stay, he returned to throw a clean ninth inning Aug. 21. In his next appearance five days later, Herrera suffered a torn Lisfranc ligament in his left foot while running to cover first base, requiring season-ending surgery. Health provided, Herrera will likely battle Alex Colome for the closer role in spring training after signing a two-year, $18 million deal with the White Sox in free agency. Read Past Outlooks
