The Diamondbacks are expected to go with three catchers on their Opening Day roster.
The Diamondbacks will use a trio to replace Wellington Castillo, who bolted to Baltimore in free agency. Chris Herrmann, Chris Iannetta and Jeff Mathis will all see action behind the plate this year, though manager Torey Lovullo has yet to determine how the playing time will be distributed. "It's hard for me to predict," said Lovullo. "We'll kind of define that as things unfold." In addition to his catching responsibilities, Herrmann could also see time in the outfield and at both corner infield positions. Feb 18 - 9:14 PM

Diamondbacks and C/OF Chris Herrmann avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $937,500 contract.

He earned a raise in his first year of arbitration eligibility after hitting a surprising .284/.352/.493 over 56 games with the D'Backs in 2016. Herrmann should see lots of playing time in 2017.

Chris Herrmann will undergo season-ending wrist surgery on Tuesday.

Herrmann fractured two bones in his left wrist while sliding into second on a stolen base Friday against the Giants. It's a tough break literally and figuratively for Herrmann, who was just activated from the disabled list four days ago after missing time with a hamstring injury. He'll close out the year with a .284 average, six homers, 28 RBI and four steals in 56 games.

Diamondbacks activated OF/C Chris Herrmann from the 15-day disabled list.

Chris Herrmann (hamstring) could return from the disabled list when rosters expand on September 1.

Chris Herrmann (hamstring) is slated to begin a rehab assignment in the next couple days.

If all goes well, he'll be activated from the disabled list next weekend. Herrmann has been on the shelf since July 17 with a right hamstring strain. He could see pretty regular playing time in the outfield with David Peralta (wrist) done for the season.

Chris Herrmann (hamstring) took live batting practice and did agility drills on Tuesday.

The next step will be baserunning, and then it's on to a minor league rehab assignment. Herrmann, out since July 17 with a right hamstring strain, is pointing toward a mid-August return to the Diamondbacks. He was sporting an impressive .290/.350/.503 batting line with six home runs and 28 RBI in 54 games before landing on the disabled list.

Diamondbacks placed C/OF Chris Herrmann on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

Chris Herrmann could be headed to the disabled list with a hamstring injury.

Herrmann pulled something while making a throw in left field on Friday night. He went for an MRI on Saturday morning and the results will determine whether he lands on the disabled list. The 28-year-old has swung a hot bat this year, hitting .292 with six homers and 28 RBI. He's made 28 starts at catcher and six in the outfield.

Chris Herrmann started behind the plate on Wednesday and went 2-for-4 with a triple against the Padres.

Herrmann has been nursing a sore hamstring and hadn't started a game since Saturday. He's due one or two more starts before the break.

Chris Herrmann is dealing with a sore hamstring.

It appears to be a day-to-day situation. Herrmann has been getting more starts in the outfield of late with Tuffy Gosewisch up as catching depth.

Chris Herrmann blasted his sixth home run of the season on Saturday versus the Diamondbacks.

Herrmann got those six bombs in only 98 at-bats. The catcher doesn't start enough to be used in most fantasy leagues but makes a good fill-in for daily leagues. Herrmann currently has a .286 AVG and .916 OPS but before you run out to pick him up you should know his career stat line prior to this year was .181/.249/.280 for a .529 career OPS. It is too early to tell if this is merely a hot streak or a true breakout for the 28-year old.

Chris Herrmann went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in a win over the Cardinals on Friday.

Herrmann plated two runs with a single in the first inning and homered off Ruben Tejada (yes, you read that correctly) in the ninth inning. The 28-year-old has come out of nowhere by batting .290 with five home runs and 19 RBI through 23 games. We have no idea if it will last -- actually, it almost certainly won’t -- but he has been a lifesaver at the catcher position for those fantasy owners who took a chance on him.

Chris Herrmann is batting second and starting in right field Tuesday night against the Yankees.

Herrmann boasts a .919 OPS with four homers and 16 RBI in 21 games this season for the Snakes. He makes for a decent DFS bargain play vs. Yankees righty Michael Pineda.

Chris Herrmann hit a pair of home runs in Sunday's 5-3, 11-inning win over the Braves.

Herrmann hit a solo homer off Braves starter Michael Foltynewicz in the seventh inning, but it will be his two-run homer in the top of the 11th inning that will make it onto the season-ending highlight reel. That one snapped a 3-3 tie and propelled the Diamondbacks to victory. The 28-year-old is slashing a respectable .238/.273/.571, but has only seen 42 at-bats and makes for a fantasy non-entity.
