Padres To Sign Jeremy Hermida

The Padres reached an agreement with outfielder Jeremy Hermida on a minor league deal, tweets ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.  They had non-tendered him last week.  Hermida, a former Marlins top prospect, hit .319/.400/.524 in 450 plate appearances for the Reds' Triple-A affiliate this year.  The 27-year-old was claimed off waivers by the Padres in August and designated for assignment in early December upon the team's acquisition of Huston Street.  Hermida received some feelers from Japanese teams this offseason, Crasnick notes.
