Oakland A's Prospect Q&A: John Herrera, P

Herrera made 21 appearances for Kane County.

Right-hander John Herrera has been a jack-of-all-trades since being selected in the 10th round in the 2005 draft. The 6'6'' Herrera has played a number of roles, including starter, short reliever and long-man. After spending all of the 2006 season and the first four months of the 2007 season in Kane County, Herrera was recently promoted to Stockton. We recently caught-up with the Redlands native.

Last season, John Herrera was one of the most valuable members of the Kane County bullpen. The lanky right-hander made 39 appearances, 38 out of the bullpen, and he posted a 3.90 ERA in 60 innings of work. Herrera returned to Kane County at the start of the 2007 season and he played a bit of a different role for the Cougars. Herrera made 21 appearances for Kane County, 11 as a starting pitcher...
