Herrera's combined six-game suspension is over, and he will be available out of the Royals' bullpen Wednesday night.

Herrera is set to return to action after serving time for his role in fracases with both the A's and White Sox. Expect him to immediately resume his role as the Royals' seventh-inning pitcher in front of setup man Wade Davis and closer Greg Holland.

Herrera's two suspensions will total six games, and he'll start serving them Thursday, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports.

Herrera was unsuccessful in the appeal of his five-game suspension, but the two-game ban was dropped down to just one game. Assuming no rainouts, he'll be eligible to return May 13 in Arlington. With Herrera temporarily sidelined, the recently-activated Luke Hochevar (elbow) may get some work in the later innings.

Herrera will appeal the two-game suspension he received from MLB on Saturday for his involvement in Thursday's brawl with the White Sox, the Kansas City Star reports.

Herrera is already appealing a five-game suspension from an incident with the A's. A final ruling will be handed down for both appeals in the coming weeks.

Herrera has been suspended two games, effective Sunday, for his role in Thursday's brawl with the White Sox.

Herrera was one of six players suspended, and all six players were also fined an undisclosed amount. It marks the second time already this season Herrera has been suspended -- he was issued a five-game ban for throwing at Oakland's Brett Lawrie last weekend -- but he is currently in the process of appealing his first suspension.

Herrera is appealing his five-game suspension for throwing at Oakland's Brett Lawrie on Saturday, Andy McCullough of The Kansas City Star reports.

While Herrera probably won't win the appeal, he will now be available for Tuesday's game against the Twins. He still figures to miss five games at some point, and will likely have to serve the suspension before Greg Holland (pectoral) is ready to return.

Herrera has been suspended five games for throwing at Brett Lawrie during Saturday's game against the Athletics, Royals broadcaster Mike Swanson reports.

Teammate Yordano Ventura escaped the weekend's drama with just a fine, so Herrera will be the only player to draw a suspension. It wouldn't be surprising to see an appeal, given that the Royals are already without closer Greg Holland (pectoral). Of course, the appeal probably won't be successful, and the process would likely come to a conclusion before Holland is ready to return. If Herrera doesn't appeal, Jason Frasor and Ryan Madson will temporarily fill in as the top setup men in front of Wade Davis.
