Jeremy Hermida LF CLE May 06 '12
Jeremy Hermida (hip flexor) will visit a specialist Monday in Philadelphia.
Hermida is eligible to be activated from the disabled list next week, but doesn't appear close to a return. He's nothing more than a part-time player behind Will Venable and Chris Denorfia when healthy.

Jeremy Hermida hit a go-ahead two-run homer in Friday's 8-7 win over the Giants.
The Padres were originally up 5-0, but the Giants scored seven runs in the fifth to pull ahead. Hermida's two-run blast off Sergio Romo in the bottom of the eighth put the Padres ahead for good. The former top prospect is hitting .350 (14-for-40) this spring and has made a late charge at a roster spot by homering three times in the past three games, but he's likely to open the season with Triple-A Tucson.

Jeremy Hermida belted a pair of solo homers Tuesday against the Rangers.
Hermida is at least putting himself in the conversation for a bench spot with his hitting this spring, as he's now batting .316 with three home runs. He hasn't done anything noteworthy at the major league level in two years, though, and batted just .190/.288/.362 in 66 plate appearances last season for the Padres and Reds.
