Jonathan Alejandro Herrera (born November 13, 1984) is a Venezuelan professional baseball second baseman with the Boston Red Sox of Major League Baseball (MLB).

Career[edit]

Colorado Rockies[edit]

Herrera was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Colorado Rockies on April 6, 2002.

On April 29, 2008, Herrera was called up to the major leagues to play second base for the Colorado Rockies in response to an injury sustained by their star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki as well as other lineup difficulties plaguing the team in the early 2008 baseball season. On May 4, he got his first RBI in a start against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Coors Field.

On December 12, 2008, Herrera was non-tendered, but re-signed to a minor league deal the next day.[1]

Herrera was called up again on May 31, 2010, to the Rockies from the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. After returning to Triple-A, he was recalled on August 19.[2]

Boston Red Sox[edit]

On December 18, 2013, Herrera was traded to the Boston Red Sox for pitcher Franklin Morales and minor-league pitcher Chris Martin.[3]
