Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said RPs Tim Collins and Aaron Crow will remain the team's setup men even though they have been inconsistent over the last month. Collins' ERA has gone from 2.02 to 4.09 since June 22. Crow has allowed seven of his last 10 inherited runners to score.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said he's looking to "mix and match" different relievers in the eighth inning to give RP Kelvin Herrera a chance to pitch in lower-leverage situations. RPs Aaron Crow, Tim Collins, Luke Hochevar or even Bruce Chen could become the primary setup man to RP Greg Holland while Herrera works on some things. Herrera allowed a game-winning homer Sunday, May 19, and it was his eighth homer allowed in his last 14 innings.
Fantasy Tip: There's no telling who might emerge as the new eighth-inning setup man, or if Herrera will get the job back rather quickly. Herrera can be dropped now in most leagues as Holland's primary handcuff while he works out his problems in allowing the long ball.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said he'll choose between RPs Aaron Crow and Luke Hochevar for a save situation Tuesday, May 7, with RP Greg Holland being rested.
Fantasy Tip: Holland threw each of the last two nights, culminating in 27 offerings in his blown save last night. Crow and Kelvin Herrera haven't been pitching well, either, so Holland doesn't appear to be in any imminent danger of losing his job right now. If you own Crow, get him into your lineup, but don't make a dash to pick up Crow or Herrera unless you're in a deep AL league and are scouring for potential save sources.

Kansas City Royals RP Aaron Crow is likely to stay in a relief role after the team acquired an abundance of starting pitching in the offseason. "He's a guy who I trust to come into a game in a tight situation," manager Ned Yost said, "and get us out of it. Those guys are hard to find. The thing that's so encouraging to me is I feel I've got a bullpen stocked with those guys." Crow has no problem with staying in relief, and he's been refining his pitches this spring.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost thinks the team can get away with a seven-man bullpen this year, which is one less than they carried for much of last season. RPs Greg Holland, Kelvin Herrera, Tim Collins and Aaron Crow are locks, and Ps Luke Hochevar, Bruce Chen and Luis Mendoza could be battling for the final spot. Hochevar, Chen and Mendoza are also all out of minor league options.
