Royals reliever Herrera returns from 6-game suspension
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Kansas City reliever Kelvin Herrera returned to the team Wednesday after serving a six-game suspension.
The suspension for throwing at Lawrie was upheld on appeal, while the penalty in the Chicago brawl was reduced to one game.
The hard-throwing Herrera is 0-1 with a 2.19 ERA in 13 games. He last pitched May 6 against Cleveland.
Manager Ned Yost said Herrera's impending return allowed him to use Greg Holland for a second inning after the right-hander blew a save Tuesday against Texas. Holland got the win in a 7-6 victory.
