Hermida is still battling his sore hip flexor.
Right-fielder Jeremy Hermida's sore right hip flexor is taking longer to heal than the Marlins had anticipated.
"It's been an up-and-down process. It's good one day and sore the next," said Hermida, who hasn't played since Florida's home opener April 11.
He is eligible to come off the disabled list Friday but he won't return to action until Monday at the earliest.
I would be very surprised to see him in the lineup on Monday. The plan, as I understand it, is to send him to do a minor league rehab assignment once he and the club feels he his ready to resume play.
That may still be many days from now.
