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. Jun 11 - 9:32 PM

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.
Jun 6 - 11:22 PM

Chris Herrmann finished 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

Herrmann has homered in three consecutive starts, posting four RBI during the span. While Jeff Mathis is superior defensively, Herrmann's bat is coming alive and he is making it hard for skipper Torey Lovullo to keep the backstop on the bench. He remains a No. 2 fantasy option in NL-only leagues with some power upside.

Chris Herrmann finished 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's game in San Diego.

Herrmann has back-to-back games with a pair of hits and a home run, showing some signs of life at a position which has been a bugaboo for the Diamondbacks. He finally inched his batting average back over the Mendoza line for the first time since May 2. He remains a No. 2 receiver option in deeper NL-only fantasy leagues, but he could change that outlook if he continues to stay hot.
May 21 - 4:35 AM

Chris Herrmann socked a walk-off solo home run in the 11th inning of Wednesday's 5-4 win over the Mets.

Facing off with Rafael Montero to lead off the bottom of the 11th inning, Herrmann connected for a long, no-doubt solo bomb to center field to send the fans home happy. Earlier in the game he also doubled and drew a walk. The 29-year-old backstop is hitting just .185/.279/.370 in 30 games this season and offers no fantasy upside, but will have at least one heroic moment to look back on come the end of the 2017 season.
May 17 - 7:33 PM

Chris Herrmann went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

Getting a rare start behind the plate, Herrmann singled in the second inning before putting the Diamondbacks ahead with an opposite-field, two-run shot in the fourth inning. He also added a walk. Herrmann might be the most intriguing of Arizona's three catchers, but he doesn't play enough to have fantasy value.
May 2 - 11:13 PM

Chris Herrmann hit his first home run of the season, a two-run shot, in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

Getting a start behind the dish, Herrmann launched a two-run blast off Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda in the fourth inning. It was his first hit since April 8, a span of 15 at-bats. He'll continue to back up starter Chris Iannetta and find some at-bats at other spots in the field as a super utility type.
Apr 23 - 1:42 AM

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.
Jan 13 - 4:55 PM

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.

Herrmann missed seven weeks with a severe right hamstring strain. He played both catcher and corner outfield on his minor league rehab assignment and could see semi-regular starts down the stretch with Arizona.

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

Herrmann has been catching and playing the outfield while on a rehab assignment and hasn't had any setbacks with his hamstring. He could see some playing time in the outfield down the stretch.

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.
Fri, Aug 12, 2016 08:42:00 AM

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.
