Kelvin Herrera to assume closing duties for Nationals

Washington Nationals relief pitcher Kelvin Herrera will fill in at closer while Sean Doolittle (toe) is on the disabled list.

What It Means:

Doolittle is expected back soon after the All-Star break, so this will be a very brief return to the door-slamming role for Herrera. The right-hander has put up a 1.89 ERA, 22.7 percent strikeout rate, and 3.9 percent walk rate in 33 1/3 innings this season between Kansas City and Washington.

Our models project Herrera to finish out the year with a 3.52 ERA, 24.6 percent strikeout rate, and 7.0 percent walk rate in 28 more innings pitched.
