Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star was told by a club official that the Royals are considering calling up Kelvin Herrera in the next few days.

Herrera owns an ugly 5.20 ERA in 29 appearances with the Royals this season and has been demoted twice, but he has a 17/2 K/BB ratio over 11 2/3 scoreless innings in his last five appearances between Double- and Triple-A. The hard-throwing 23-year-old has a ton of talent, so the Royals are hoping that he has righted himself.
