Diamondbacks released C/OF Chris Herrmann.

Herrmann cleared waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. The 30-year-old struggled last year after a surprising showing in 2016, but he should latch on with a new team soon.

Diamondbacks designated C/OF Chris Herrmann for assignment.

Herrmann entered camp third on the depth chart behind the plate and was unable to improve his standing. He could attract interest on waivers from a team starved for catching depth.
Mar 25 - 6:56 PM

Chris Herrmann went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in Saturday's split-squad Cactus League win over the Angels.

Herrmann went yard for the three-run tater with two outs in the fifth inning. It was his second home run of the spring. There's no fantasy intrigue with this one. Last season, the veteran saw playing time in both the outfield and behind the plate, but failed to do much of anything with his opportunities, hitting just .181 in 256 plate appearances.
Mar 24 - 7:56 PM

Chris Herrmann went 2-for-3 with a homer, a double, and two RBI in Friday’s 7-2 win over the split-squad Royals in Cactus League action.

Herrmann slugged a solo homer off Wily Peralta in the fourth before plating another run on a sacrifice fly in the seventh. The 30-year-old bounced between the outfield and catcher last season while batting .181 with 10 homers and a .619 OPS over 256 plate appearances. He should be back as a utility player this season, but he figures to see fewer opportunities unless there’s an injury.
Mar 9 - 8:25 PM

Diamondbacks and C/OF Chris Herrmann avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.3 million contract.

Herrmann was eligible for arbitration for the second time. The 30-year-old hit just .181/.273/.345 last season.
Jan 12 - 2:11 PM

Chris Herrmann is absent from the Diamondbacks' NLDS roster.

The D'Backs carried three catchers virtually all season, but they've pared it down to two (Chris Iannetta and Jeff Mathis) for the NLDS. Arizona essentially chose Christian Walker or Herrmann, as they likely view him as a bigger pinch-hitting threat even though Walker only had 15 plate appearances in the majors this season.

Chris Herrmann clubbed his 10th home run of the season as the Diamondbacks rallied late to beat the Marlins on Sunday.

Herrmann got the D'Backs on the board with his solo shot off of Dan Straily in the fifth inning. The veteran backstop finished the day 1-for-3 plus a walk, raising his season slash to .176/.271/.344 to go with his 10 long balls and 27 RBI.

Chris Herrmann went 2-for-4 and homered Wednesday against the Dodgers.

The homer was his ninth in 194 at-bats this year. Herrmann is getting to do some more catching now with Jeff Mathis down, but Chris Iannetta is doing the bulk of the work there. Also, Herrmann no longer has much access to outfield playing time with J.D. Martinez around. He's just a No. 2 catcher in NL-only leagues.

Chris Herrmann hit a two-run home run and scored two runs in a lopsided win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Herrmann drew the start behind the dish and rewarded manager Torey Lovullo with his eighth homer of the year, a two-run bomb, off Reds reliever Tony Cingrani in the fifth inning. The 29-year-old showed some offensive ability in hitting .284 with an .845 OPS last season, but he's disappointed with a .180/.271/.380 line through 69 games to date.

Chris Herrmann had a leadoff homer and two walks Monday against the Phillies.

One of the walks came with the bases loaded. It was Herrmann's first start in the leadoff spot, and it couldn't have gone much better. He entered the day with just a .182 average, though he had walked 15 times in 125 plate appearances. He's going to remain a part-timer, of course.

Chris Herrmann finished 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored and three RBI in Saturday's win against the Phillies.

Herrmann has picked up the pace, going 7-for-23 (.304) with a pair of doubles, a home run and six RBI over the past eight outings. He has raised his average from .151 to .183 just since June 9, but he still has a lot of work to do at the plate before he is viability outside of the deepest of NL fantasy formats.
Sun, Jun 25, 2017 02:23:00 AM

Chris Herrmann posted a double, a two-run home run and three RBI with two runs scored across four at-bats in Sunday's game against Milwaukee.

Herrmann has homered in 18 big league games and his team has won all of them, posting a 17-0 record. He has shown occasional power, but he is hitting just .167. Since the return of Chris Iannetta from the concussion disabled list Herrmann's playing time has been rather erratic. He'll serve as the primary backup to Iannetta, but his fantasy appeal is not terribly great due to his subpar average.

Chris Herrmann has been diagnosed with right hand soreness.

But there are probably some tests coming that will paint a clearer picture. Herrmann tweaked something in his hand on a swing in the bottom of the fourth inning Tuesday and Chris Iannetta replaced him behind the plate in the top of the fifth.

Chris Herrmann left Tuesday's game against the Padres with an apparent hand or wrist injury.

Herrmann appeared to tweak something in his right hand or wrist on a swing in the bottom of the fourth. Chris Iannetta took over behind the plate in the top of the fifth.
