Jeremy Hermida doing well this spring

Postby Carey Saders » Sat Mar 14, 2009 2:19 am

His ST numbers looks solid so far. What I like the best is his 3/5 K/BB ratio. Granted, it's a small sample size, but there's no doubting this kid has a sweet swing. Any of you looking at him with any interest?

Just a reminder, because I think most people know this, but there is a slight correlation between a player having spring training slugging percentage .200 points their career slugging percentage and that player having a "breakout" year. I believe the original article for this is located here. However, I usually what until the last week of spring training to examine this.

That said, Hermida is certainly on fire this spring. However, his K/BB ratio, which made him such a highly regarded prospect in the minors, has not been getting worse each year in the majors (2.1, 2.2, 2.9 in MLB, 0.8 in the high minors). Until he reverses this trend, his chances of being valuable in fantasy are very slim. He's a good last round gamble, but I do not have high hopes for him.

I'm optimistic since Hermida's main problem has been staying healthy. He still has a lot of talent and he is only 25 so he has time on his side.

One of these days, Hermida will pull a JD Drew. Will this be the year though......?

there's so many different versions of JD Drew. Be more specific.

For me, Hermida already falls into the "fool me twice" category... Of course, so did Quentin the two years leading up to last year.

I agree, and I hope I get him as a fourth OF. I have had him on at least one team since he cameup. Chances are, if I get him, he will just be OK, but if I miss him he will break out in a big way. I'll keep you guys posted. ;-7
Be excellent to each other.

Why was he so crappy at home in '08?

.203/.273/.312

What is in Florida that distracts him? :-?
