BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Jeremy Hermida made the Padres out of spring training, had surgery to repair a sports hernia in May, and then did nothing in two months at Triple-A before being released at the end of August.
2012 Hermida now has about the same number of plate appearances in the big leagues as in the minors, and although the power portion of his game has translated well enough, the on-base skills that ignited dreams of Erubiel Durazo or Hee Seop Choi have fizzled. Hermida's walk rate in the minors was 13.9 percent but is 9.5 in the big leagues, which is the difference between Willie McCovey and Willie Tasby. Who is Tasby? Exactly. Hermida showed signs of life in September with the Padres, who took a flier on him because teams with nothing left to lose will do that sort of thing. Maybe this is the beginning of Hermida 2.0. Or maybe he is just one of those guys that peaks at age 23.
2011 It's fitting that Hermida finished up with Oakland after being released by the Red Sox in late August, as in many ways he's become a younger generation's Ben Grieve. Once one of the brightest offensive prospects in the game after slugging over .500 as a 23-year-old in the Marlins' pitcher's park, it's been downhill from there, and there's no good explanation for what went wrong. When asked about the more recent vintage of the outfielder, one scout said, “He doesn't do anything well,” and that sums up his situation. He won't be back in Oakland, but someone, somewhere is going to give him another chance. Still, as he enters his age-27 season, the vultures are circling.
2010 Boston might have made a very canny move in picking up Hermida, though he is widely viewed as a disappointment a Florida, an unmotivated kid who threw his career into reverse after what seemed like a breakthrough season in 2007. For all the negativity directed towards his weak defense and his perceived bad attitude, there are hints that there is more to this player than meets the eye. Hermida has been badly handicapped by Dolphin Stadium, hitting a hopeless .253/.328/.393 at home but a more robust .276/.359/.476 on the road. He has also struggled against left-handers, hitting only .237/.321/.376 against them, versus .274/.351/.441 against righties. Filter out his two handicaps, and you get a Hermida who hits .288/.369/.484. The latter figure is the one that the Red Sox hope to see and build on, given that Hermida will be only 26 this year.
2009 The oft-injured Hermida set a career high for plate appearances, but that was it for good news, as his power took a hit, and he struck out more often while walking less. He displayed less patience with pitches outside of the zone, but curiously also sat on more strikes than normal as well. The frequent comparisons to Ben Grieve are starting to look overstated, but only because at least Grieve was good in his early peak before fizzling, while Herminda's not even achieved "good" with any reliability. Appropriately concerned, the Marlins have shopped him around this offseason.
2008 One of the positives to emerge from the Marlins' disappointing 2007 season was that Hermida finally stayed in the lineup and finally hit. From July 1 on, Hermida hit .339/.403/.559 while missing just one game. He hit both lefties and righties, showed off a good arm in right field, and established himself as the team's number-three hitter. Still just 24, he could make the All-Star team this year.
2007 Hermida missed time early on with a hip flexor injury, then missed time late with an ankle injury, both of which confirmed the reputation for fragility he built up in the minors. In between, he rarely resembled the player he was supposed to be, even taking into account that there`s disagreement about what he`s supposed to be. PECOTA was a bit underwhelmed last year, comparing him to some recent slowpokes such as Jack Cust and Dee Brown. The comparables are even more pessimistic now, though Van Slyke was an excellent player, and Kemp was a very good one whose career was derailed by injuries. Hermida`s really quite a bit more athletic than that, so although the evaporation of his minor league walk rate is discouraging, he`s still young enough to be a great bounceback candidate.
2006 You can argue that this guy deserves to be the #1 prospect in the book based on his plate judgment, blossoming power, and sizzling September cup of coffee. All the questions about Hermida involve his youth and his precocious selectivity. It`s impossible to predict where you`ll go if you`ve already arrived, which is to say that Hermida already has the plate judgment of a much older player and his home run power checked in for the first time in 2005. He may already be as refined as he can be. If he stops where he is he`s going to be a fine player, but if he develops along the normal curve he could be Bondsian. There are reasons not to be satisfied with Hermida`s sorry-looking collection of PECOTA comparables--he`s more selective than Tom Brunansky, has better bat control than Jack Cust, and Clint Hurdle got hurt at 22 and never recovered.
2005 For all the outfield prospects they've had, from Nigel Wilson and Carl Everett through Chip Ambres and Abraham Nunez, the Marlins haven't developed any of them for themselves in their dozen years (Miguel Cabrera is a converted third baseman) of existence. Hermida, a left-handed hitter with a line-drive stroke, should be the first. A hamstring pull cut into his speed and his playing time last year, but shouldn't be a problem in '05. Be patient, and think Paul O'Neill.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Are you expecting big things from any of the former bigtime prospects that haven't really done much in the bigs yet? Alex Gordon, Delmon Young, Jeremy Hermida, Others?
(Aaron from YYZ)
Kevin is still high on Delmon, an enthusiasm I don't share, but you have to respect Guru Goldstein's feelings about these things so I'm keeping an open mind. If you check out the Hermida comment in the book, which I wrote, you'll see that I had high hopes for him to break out in Boston, but right now it seems like the playing time just won't be there. (Steven Goldman)
2009-12-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Breakout batter and pitcher of 2010 is?
(Hawkeye from Grafton, ND)
Jeremy Hermida and Mike Pelfrey. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-09-08 13:00:00 (link to chat)Marc, what do you do with talented but frustrating young players in Dynasty leagues (the only penalty to keeping them is opportunity cost)? I'm not talking about guys you depend on, but more guys that you're hoping figure it out while they eat up depth space on your bench/reserve. Someone like Chris B. Young, Jeremy Hermida, Alex Gordon, Francisco Liriano... the flashes of brilliance are there but it sure is hard to be patient.
(Aaron from YYZ)
I don't have a general rule, but if I think someone has a lot of potential, I would waste the bench spot on them in the hopes they turn things around. My exception to this would be if it was someone no one else thought much of--my hope would be that since I gave up on him, no one else would be willing to take the risk. Talk up your league a bit to get a sense of those sorts of things so you can take advantage when the time comes. (Marc Normandin)
2009-05-21 14:00:00 (link to chat)I want to believe in Jeremy Hermida, but he has exactly one half of one season where he slugged anything worth a crap. At what point is this just not going to happen?
(Bill from MA)
I rarely suggest this, but Hermida might need to swing more. He seems to let a lot of hittable pitches go by. That works for Adam Dunn, and a lot of other guys, but maybe not so much for the guy hitting .250 and slugging .367. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-04-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jeremy Hermida? Buying or selling?
(Jericho from The Moon)
Buying, and in a big way. (Joe Sheehan)
2008-11-03 13:30:00 (link to chat) What happened to Jeremy Hermida? He looked like he was going to fulfill his potential during the second half of 2007, then blah in 2008.
(Fine Man from Ottawa, Canada)
He's certainly not helping any of us resolve the stats/scouts argument over whether or not he had as much upside as his performance record suggested, is he? At this point, he's more Kevin Maas than Ben Grieve, and the fact that both halves of that proposition are a bit of a downer, it's beginning to look like some of us were oversold on those big walk totals in the minors. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-08-15 15:00:00 (link to chat)What's the matter with Jeremy Hermida? Please don't tell me he's the next Marty Cordova!
(Al from NYC)
I sense a trend, and here I am wondering if I'm not the only fan who's a-Grieve'd by Ben's shortcomings. But hey, if people want to make it all about Marty, it might make it easier for me to forget, and move on... (Christina Kahrl)
2008-04-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey Marc! Can you explain me some fantasty baseball? In a vanilla 10 teamer, I've got Melky Cabrera, Milledge, Adam Jones, and Jeremy Hermida, but only 2 spots for them. In this format, are any of them (Melky?) cuttable? I feel like each of the other three is too good to be on my bench. Do I need to make a trade?
(akachazz from DC)
If you only have the two spots, I'd sell high on Melky. You aren't going to get a lot for Milledge or Hermida while their SLG is down, and Melky isn't doing so great that he's untouchable for you. (Marc Normandin)
2008-04-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)Nate, who would you rather have on your real baseball team over the next 15 years, Delmon Young or Jeremy Hermida? Thanks! Jason
(Jason Golub from NYC)
Young, but only because of Hermida's propensity to hurt himself. (Nate Silver)
2008-01-10 13:00:00 (link to chat)Do you see Jeremy Hermida making the leap this year?
(Dan from NYC)
Didn't he already do that in the second half? He's a terrific hitter, probably going to end up somewhere between Shawn Green and Lance Berkman. Too bad no one will notice. (Joe Sheehan)
