Yankees' Rosell Herrera: Doesn't make Opening Day roster
Herrera (heel) is not included on the Yankees' active 30-man roster.
Herrera was once a candidate for a roster spot after impressing during spring training, but he dealt with pain in both heels throughout much of summer camp and wasn't able to play in any of the team's three exhibition contests. It remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old will be placed on the injured list or assigned to the team's alternate training site.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Rosell Herrera: Dealing with heel pain
Manager Aaron Boone revealed Monday that Herrera is dealing with pain in both of his heels, Brendan Kuty of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.
Herrera's heel issues started up at the end of spring training, but the problem has resurfaced and has kept him off the field since Thursday. The exact nature and severity of the injury are unclear. The 27-year-old impressed as a non-roster invitee during spring training this year, but he isn't expected to make much of an impact in the majors in 2020.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Rosell Herrera: Makes 60-man player pool
Herrera has been named to the Yankees' 60-man roster.
Herrera is not on the Yankees' 40-man roster, so he's unlikely to make much of a major-league impact this season. The 27-year-old did impress this spring, hitting .400 with four extra-base hits and four RBI in 25 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Yankees' Rosell Herrera: Impressing in spring camp
Herrera has gone 7-for-14 with four RBI in Grapefruit League action and has "opened eyes" in camp, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.
Herrera hasn't hit well thus far in the majors -- he owns a career .225 average in 383 at-bats -- but his versatility in the field and hot start to spring have impressed team officials. Still, the 27-year-old is not on the 40-man roster and remains a longshot to make the Opening Day roster in spite of a rash of injuries to Yankee position players this spring.... See More ...

Yankees' Rosell Herrera: Invited to Yankees camp
Herrera joined the Yankees as a non-roster invitee Monday.
Herrera has appeared in 149 career big-league games, spending time with the Reds, Royals and Marlins. He hasn't found much success at the plate, hitting .225/.286/.316 with three homers. His ability to play both middle infield spots and center field theoretically helps him toward earning a bench role, but his bat appears to be too weak for that to happen on a contending team....

Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Clears waivers
Herrera cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A New Orleans on Saturday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Herrera's .200/.288/.314 slash line understandably didn't stir up a ton of interest on the waiver wire. He'll remain as organizational depth for the Marlins.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Designated for assignment
Herrera was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Wednesday, Craig Mish of FNTSY reports.
The Marlins need to clear a roster spot for the addition of Zac Gallen, who will have his contract purchased ahead of his scheduled start Thursday against the Cardinals. Herrera didn't stake a particularly firm claim to a roster spot, hitting just .200/.288/.314 in 63 games and posting the exact same .602 OPS he recorded in his debut season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Launches second homer
Herrera went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Padres.
For the second time this week, Herrera entered the game as a pinch hitter and went yard, this time stepping to the plate for Caleb Smith in the sixth inning and spoiling a potential shutout bid for San Diego pitcher Joey Lucchesi. Those are his only two homers of the year, however, and Herrera's .222/.293/.344 slash line will likely keep him in a bench role.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Pops pinch-hit homer
Herrera pinch hit for Curtis Granderson in the eighth inning and went 1-for-1 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Giants.
The 26-year-old has started only two games since May 15, as Harold Ramirez's emergence has pushed Herrera into a reserve role for which he's probably a better fit. The homer was his first of the season and only the second of his career, and his .207/.281/.299 slash line doesn't make a strong case for more consistent playing time.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Sticking in bench role
Herrera remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals, David Wilson of the Miami Herald reports.
Herrera appeared to capture primary center-field duties earlier in the month, but his middling production at the dish prevented him from running away with the full-time job. Harold Ramirez has since passed him in the pecking order, as Herrera will come off the bench for the eighth time in the Marlins' last nine games.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Late lineup addition
Herrera will start in center field and bat eighth Sunday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Herrera was originally scheduled to ride the bench for the fifth time in six games, but Jon Berti (oblique) was a late scratch, thrusting him into the lineup. The 26-year-old could see an uptick in playing time going forward, depending on the severity of Berti's injury.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Losing playing time
Herrera will sit Saturday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Herrera finds himself on the bench for the fourth time in five games, with Jon Berti getting the call in center field on each occasion. Expect Herrera to fill a bench role for the foreseeable future.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Out of Friday's lineup
Herrera is not in the lineup for Friday's game versus the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Herrera heads to the bench for the third time in the last four games despite slashing an improved .292/.393/.333 over his last nine games, though that only raises his season OPS to .498. Jon Berti will bat leadoff and start in center field Friday.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Sits again Tuesday
Herrera sits for the second straight game Tuesday against the Rays, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Herrera is hitting just .203/.280/.243 on the season. Jon Berti starts in center field again in his absence.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Not starting Saturday
Herrera is not in the lineup Saturday against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Gets another day off
Herrera is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Cubs, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Herrera started three straight contests prior to Sunday, but he'll now head to the bench for the third consecutive matchup. Isaac Galloway draws another start in center field and will bat eighth.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Remains on bench
Herrera sits for the second straight contest Monday against the Cubs, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Herrera seemed to be claiming the starting center field role after starting three straight games from Wednesday to Saturday, but he's now been on the bench for two straight. Isaac Galloway starts again Monday.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Sits after three straight starts
Herrera is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Herrera had started each of the past three games in center field and provided the Miami offense with a nice lift, registering four hits in 11 at-bats and driving in four. Isaac Galloway will check into the starting nine in the series finale, but Herrera looks to be ahead of him on the depth chart for now.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Fuels offense against Cleveland
Herrera went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's 4-2 win over Cleveland.
A two-run double in the fourth inning and a run-scoring single in the sixth gave Caleb Smith all the run support he would need on the night, while also doubling Herrera's RBI total on the year. His .172/.226/.224 slash line through 27 games keeps him far off fantasy radars, but if he can put together a hot streak at the plate, there is playing time in the Marlins' outfield up for grabs....

Marlins' Rosell Herrera: Sits again Sunday
Herrera is not in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Phillies, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Herrera saw fairly regular action through the first 10 games of the year but has now been in the lineup only once in the past six contests. The 26-year-old can play all three outfield spots but has seen only two starts in right field despite Garrett Cooper (calf) being on the injured list, with Peter O'Brien -- prior to his demotion -- and Austin Dean instead garnering the recent starts....
