There is simply no good reason to give up on him IMO, I mean even in arbitration he's not gonna be making ridiculous amounts of cash assuming it gets that far.
I agree they should not give up on him but why bash Herrera? He may not have a ton of velocity but you cannot argue with results plus he has no injury history like Bray. It seems like you are discounting him just waiting for the wheels to fall off. In fact I would argue that Herrera has been a tick better then Bray was last season.
