Angels purchased the contract of RHP Yoslan Herrera from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Herrera posted a 4.50 ERA and 2.33 WHIP over six relief innings earlier this season for the Halos. He won't be used in high-leverage situations.

Angels sent RHP Yoslan Herrera outright to Triple-A Salt Lake.

He's now off the 40-man roster, clearing a spot for C.J. Cron. Herrera posted a 4.50 ERA and 2.33 WHIP over six relief innings earlier this season for the Halos.

Angels optioned RHP Yoslan Herrera to Triple-A Salt Lake.

Herrera compiled a 4.50 ERA and 2.33 WHIP over six innings since being recalled on April 13. In his final outing Wednesday, the right-hander allowed two runs without recording an out. A corresponding roster move, likely for a position player, will be made on Friday.

Angels purchased the contract of RHP Yoslan Herrera from Triple-A Salt Lake.

Herrera hasn't pitched in the majors since 2008 and was in independent ball last year after missing 2011 and 2012 due to injury. He'll operate in middle relief.

Pirates sent RHP Yoslan Herrera and RHP Marino Salas outright to Triple-A Indianapolis.

Herrera, who received a three-year, $1.92 million contract after defecting from Cuba, made five starts for the Pirates in his second year in the U.S. and posted a 9.82 ERA. He doesn't have the fastball to succeed as a major league starter, but there's still a slight hope that he could be of some use in middle relief.

Pirates optioned RHP Yoslan Herrera to Double-A Altoona.

Herrera posted a 9.82 ERA in five starts with the Pirates, including a disastrous outing Monday against the Diamondbacks. No corresponding roster move has been made yet, but the Pirates may recall Tom Gorzelanny from Triple-A, where he has a 2.01 ERA in five starts since his demotion.

Yoslan Herrera worked six scoreless innings to pick up his first major-league victory as the Pirates beat the Padres 9-1 on Thursday night.

Herrera had been pounded in each of his first two big-league starts, so tonight's outing was a massive upgrade. He allowed only six hits and a walk while striking out four. The strong outing slices his ERA from 19.50 to 9.75, but he remains a poor fantasy option for the time being.

Yoslan Herrera dropped his first career decision after giving up seven runs in 1 2/3 innings Saturday against the Rockies.

Herrera also struggled last week in his debut, so he's sporting a 19.50 ERA after two starts. He'll probably head back to Triple-A now.

Pirates purchased the contract of RHP Yoslan Herrera from Double-A Altoona.

The Cuban defector will make his major league debut Saturday against the Cardinals. Herrera allowed two runs over seven innings in his Triple-A debut on June 28 and has a 2.81 ERA in the minors this season. He's an upgrade for the Pirates' rotation, but that doesn't make him a good fantasy option, even for NL-only leaguers.

Yoslan Herrera made his Triple-A debut on Friday and allowed two runs in seven innings.

We thought Herrera would be the choice to join the rotation when Ian Snell joined Phil Dumatrait on the disabled list, but the Pirates went the boring route and chose Ty Taubenheim. At least Herrera did get some sort of promotion out of it.

Cuban defector Yoslan Herrera pitched seven scoreless innings Sunday for Double-A Altoona.

If Ian Snell joins Phil Dumatrait on the disabled list, the Pirates might opt to take a look at Herrera. He has a 1.03 ERA in four starts this month, making 4-7 with a 3.02 ERA, 80 H and 47/27 K/BB in 80 2/3 innings for the season. He'd be a weak bet in NL-only leaguers if he gets the call, but he'd have a better chance of holding his own than most of the starters the Pirates have in Triple-A.
Mon, Jun 23, 2008 03:31:00 PM

Yoslan Herrera allowed one hit over two innings in the Pirates' 5-0 victory over Manatee C.C. on Wednesday.

Ryan Doumit and Doug Mientkiewicz drove in two runs apiece for the Pirates. Herrera was a disappointment in the minors last season after earning a major league contract from the Pirates, and he doesn't appear to be a candidate to win a job this spring. He'll probably be in the rotation at Triple-A Indianapolis.
