That would imply that you think Hermida is gonna smack 30 hr's this year or something. i think that is a big reach.
Butler obviously has a better bat than hermida for fantasy purposes. Hermida is more attractive however because he has an opening day job in an improving lineup and can run a little. When both are established players in the MLB butler will outshine hermida at the plate.
