Brewers sign Jeremy Hermida


Former stud prospect Jeremy Hermida spent all of this season playing at Triple-A for the Brewers’ affiliate and he’s re-signed with Milwaukee on another minor-league deal.

Hermida is 31 years old now, so any thoughts of him re-emerging as a star in the majors are long gone, but setting aside his prospect hype he posted a reasonable .749 OPS in 632 games as a big leaguer.

This year at Triple-A he had an .826 OPS with 16 homers and 62 walks in 108 games, so he’s a nice player to have around as organizational depth. Not quite what everyone had in mind when Hermida ranked as a top-30 prospect by Baseball America in three straight seasons, including No. 4 overall in 2006.
