Hermida: Day-to-Day

New, comments

Hermida was held out of the lineup due to a sore hip flexor.

One of the Marlins' top young players was not in the lineup Wednesday afternoon because of tightness in his right hip.

Rookie right fielder Jeremy Hermida aggravated his hip flexor while rounding second base and heading to third in the sixth inning of Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Padres. He pulled up at third base on Miguel Cabrera's double.

Hermida tried to play through it, but he was removed from the game in the ninth inning, after he had one at-bat (a strikeout) in the eighth. In the top of the eighth inning, Hermida clearly looked hobbled while running down Dave Roberts' triple to the right-field corner.

Hermida is available as a pinch-hit option, and he could be back in the lineup as early as Thursday.

Don't be surprised if the club decides to sit him for a few more days.  It's just not worth taking a chance at this point in the season.
