Kelvin Herrera to have an MRI today


Royals’ reliever Kelvin Herrera had to leave last night’s game against the Angels after experiencing right forearm tightness. That could’ve been a big blow to Kansas City last night, but they survived it. Today he’ll get an MRI on the arm to see what they’re dealing with.

Forearm tightness in a pitcher is no joke. It could be something serious. But even when it’s not, the usual course of action is to rest the pitcher a bit. In July you deal with it. In October, man, that could be a huge, huge blow.

Updates as they occur.
