Royals hope Herrera can pitch against Rockies

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Royals are unsure whether closer Kelvin Herrera will be available Wednesday for the middle game of their three-game series against the Colorado Rockies.

Herrera exited with two outs in the ninth and the bases full of Rockies on Tuesday due to right forearm tightness. Left-hander Scott Alexander recorded the final out to seal 3-2 Kansas City's triumph and his first major league save.

"We're checking him," Royals manager Ned Yost said of Herrera. "It's in a spot ... right in (his mid-forearm). It's not like in (his wrist) or in (his elbow). Kind of a spot that generally doesn't mean anything really."
