Chris Herrmann went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Thursday's win over the Cardinals.
Herrmann also struck out twice, but he at least made his lone hit count. The 28-year-old backstop clocked a two-run shot off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha in the second inning. The dinger was his second of the season. That aside, he has seen just 28 at-bats this season and offers no fantasy upside. Apr 29 - 12:12 AM

Herrmann had one hit in 21 plate appearances prior to this outburst. He's now hitting .130/.200/.348 on the young season, which actually mirrors his .146/.214/.272 rather closely from a year ago with the Twins. He's not fantasy relevant.

Chris Herrmann homered and doubled Wednesday in a losing cause against the Rays.

Herrmann has managed to stick on the Twins' 40-man roster even though he's hit .196/.264/.284 with in 250 at-bats over the last three years. It's his ability to serve as a third catcher that's kept him around, but, really, he's not good enough defensively to make it as a true backup there and he hasn't shown he can hit enough to help as an outfielder. He's a long shot to make the Twins.
