  • Nationals' Ronald Herrera: Back with Nats on minor-league pact

    Herrera re-signed with the Nationals on a minor-league contract Dec. 1.

    After electing free agency in November, Herrera was on the open market for three weeks before determining that his best option was returning to the Nationals organization for a second season. The 27-year-old right-hander previously had a cup of coffee in the majors with the Yankees in 2017, but he's otherwise spent the past five seasons in the minors. He tossed 129 innings at Double-A Harrisburg in 2022, logging a 4.40 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 114:34 K:BB.

  • Rangers' Ronald Herrera: Sidelined with groin strain

    Herrera was placed on the 7-day injured list Friday at Triple-A Nashville due to a groin strain, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Herrera was sidelined for the entire 2018 campaign while dealing with shoulder trouble, but it's a different injury that has him unavailable to begin the current season. The 23-year-old right-hander will likely have his innings count monitored carefully once he's cleared to pitch again.

  • Rangers' Ronald Herrera: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Herrera (shoulder) has been sent outright to Triple-A Nashville.

    Herrera was bumped off the 40-man roster to make room for Jack Reinheimer. Herrera didn't see any action in 2018 due to a significant shoulder injury, although he's hopeful to be ready to go for the beginning of spring training.

  • Rangers' Ronald Herrera: Limited to flat-ground throwing

    Herrera (shoulder) hasn't progressed beyond throwing off flat ground at extended spring training, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

    The right-hander was placed on the 60-day disabled list before camp ended in March and will likely be sidelined until at least July while he continues to build up strength in his right shoulder. Herrera has made just two big-league appearances in his career, so it's expected that he'll be optioned to Triple-A Round Rock or Double-A Frisco once he's activated.

    Herrera was put on the 60-day disabled list Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

  • Rangers' Ronald Herrera: Set for PRP injection, out until July

    Herrera is dealing with labrum inflammation and will be sidelined until July, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Herrera was hoping to receive medical clearance to begin a throwing program this week, but his shoulder apparently didn't check out as planned. He'll now receive a PRP injection and rest up until he's cleared to resume throwing again. With this setback, Herrera is expected to open the year on the disabled list and miss most, if not all of the first half of the season as he works his way back.

  • Rangers' Ronald Herrera: Dealing with shoulder inflammation

    Herrera is limited this spring because of inflammation in his right shoulder, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

  • Rangers' Ronald Herrera: Traded to Rangers

    Herrera was traded to the Rangers on Monday for Reiver Sanmartin, and was added to the 40-man roster.

    This is the deadline for teams to add players to their 40-man roster as protection from the Rule 5 draft, and the Yankees obviously wanted to use Herrera's spot for another player, so they got what they could for him. He is 22 and made two starts at Triple-A last season, so he could offer pitching depth for Texas at some point in 2018, likely working in a swing man role. Herrera has a 3.26 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 200 strikeouts in 231.2 innings at Double-A. Look for him to report to Triple-A Round Rock.

  • Yankees' Ronald Herrera: Sent back to minors

    Herrera was sent back to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre on Friday, Brendan Kuty of reports.

    Herrera made just one appearance with the Yankees before being shuttled back to the minors, where he'll likely continue to develop as a starter. He could be back with the big club soon if he continues to dominate in the minors. Bryan Mitchell was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move.

  • Yankees' Ronald Herrera: Recalled by Yankees

    Herrera was recalled by the Yankees on Monday.

    The young right-hander has absolutely dominated at Double-A Trenton this season, posting a 1.13 ERA and 0.82 WHIP over nine starts, and he was recently promoted to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. He'll get another shot in the big leagues after making his major-league debut in a relief appearance for the Yankees earlier this season, allowing two earned runs over two innings in a loss to the Angels. Look for Herrera to be used in low-leverage situations out of the bullpen as he acclimates to professional hitters.

  • Yankees' Ronald Herrera: Called up to big club

    Herrera was recalled from Double-A Trenton on Wednesday.

    Herrera was dominating Double-A before being promoted to the Yankees, as the 22-year-old worked a 1.07 ERA and 0.76 WHIP to a 7-0 record through 50.1 innings (eight starts). He's worked almost exclusively as a starter in the minors, so it's unclear how the big club intend to use him upon his arrival. He could possibly earn a spot start for the injured CC Sabathia or even be used out of the bullpen after Yankees relievers logged seven innings in Tuesday's extra-innings loss.

  • Yankees' Ronald Herrera: Heading back to Double-A

    Herrera was optioned to Double-A Trenton on Thursday.

    He was recalled Wednesday to add some bullpen depth during the Yankees west coast swing, but a tough outing against the Angels earned him a trip back to Trenton. Herrera allowed a home run and two earned runs over 2.0 innings against the Halos while fanning two batters. He'll likely rejoin the rotation down at Trenton upon his return.

  • Yankees' Ronald Herrera: Returns from DL with 5.1-inning gem

    Herrera (shoulder) fired 5.1 scoreless innings in his season debut with Double-A Trenton on Sunday.

    The 22-year-old was sidelined since spring training due to a bout of shoulder inflammation, but Sunday's outing seems to indicate that there aren't any lingering effects of that ailment. Herrera should continue to log starts with Double-A Trenton for much of the season, although more starts like this could get him a promotion to Triple-A somewhat soon.

    Herrera (shoulder) was placed on the 7-day disabled list Thursday.

    Herrera dealt with shoulder inflammation throughout spring training, and it appears the issue has yet to subside. It's unclear how much longer he'll be forced to sit out, but things should become clearer as he ramps up his throwing again.
