Phillies Interested In Hermida

According to MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro, the Phillies are interested in Marlins outfielder Jeremy Hermida.  Hermida could be a more affordable replacement for Pat Burrell.  On Friday, Ken Rosenthal wrote that the Cubs and Rays were in on Hermida.

Hermida, 25 in January, hit .249/.323/.406 in 559 plate appearances.  He was much better in ’07.  His defense in right field has been slightly above average.  He’s arbitration-eligible for the first time, and under team control for three more seasons.
