"He's not sharp," Yost said. "He's pitching about once over five days. We need to get him more in a pitching rhythm. It's not enough to keep him sharp. We can pitch him in the seventh and eighth innings and get him in more games instead of holding him back for save situations, and try to get him sharp again, and then reinsert him."
Herrera is 3-3 with 26 saves this season, though he has been taken out of the game five times in his last 17 appearances as his ERA has ballooned to 4.56.
