Hermida, 27 this month, becomes what Laynce Nix was for most of the past two years: an injury-prone left-handed corner outfielder who's a likely candidate to platoon with Jonny Gomes. Hermida has less power but a little more speed and BA ability than Nix. Great American Ball Park may have a say about the power, but Hermida is unlikely to be much more than a reserve pick in NLs.
This southpaw will be a full three years removed from Tommy John surgery come opening day. For a couple of years with the Milwaukee Brewers, he posted 7.00-plus K/9 and an ERA in the low to mid-4.00s. Forgotten. He was quite effective on the farm and then back up with the big club last season, but Capuano, 32, wanted to sign where he'd get a shot to start. He could be worth a flier in very deep leagues.
