Hermida back in action

Hermida is ready to resume baseball activities.

Still working himself back into game shape, Hermida will take part in extended Spring Training games Friday and Saturday at the Roger Dean Stadium complex. In each game, he will get about five at-bats. On Monday, he is scheduled to play in a rehab assignment for the Class A Jupiter Hammerheads.

Hermida is wearing a protective padding on the knee, and he is getting into game condition. There still isn't a definitive timetable for Hermida's return, but he is getting closer each day.

So far, he ran the bases yesterday and has taken some swings but as yet to venture out into the field.  Once he is near ready he will need probably 50 AB in the minors to regain form.  His return is still a ways off.
