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.
Jul 7 - 1:10 AM

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.
Jul 3 - 1:56 PM

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.
May 17 - 5:37 PM

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.
May 8 - 6:37 PM

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

Chris Herrmann went 2-for-3 with a double, a homer and a walk, driving in four runs in Saturday's win over the Pirates.

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.
Apr 24 - 12:14 AM

Chris Herrmann (hip) could return to game action by the middle of the week.

Herrmann has been battling a sore hip for a couple weeks. The ailment doesn't look like a long-term concern, but it's not helping his chances of winning the backup catcher job.
Mar 20 - 8:59 AM

Chris Herrmann was scratched from Sunday's lineup with a sore hip.

It's something Herrmann has been dealing with for a week and he finally decided he shouldn't be playing through it. Herrmann is competing for the Diamondbacks' backup catcher job.
Mar 13 - 3:57 PM

Diamondbacks acquired C Chris Herrmann from the Twins in exchange for OF Daniel Palka.

Interestingly, Herrmann was general manager Dave Stewart's client when the GM used to be an agent. The career .181/.249/.280 hitter could back up Welington Castillo next season.

Twins recalled C Chris Herrmann from Triple-A Rochester.

He'll serve as the primary backup to starter Kurt Suzuki. The 27-year-old has struggled in his time with the big league club this year, slashing a mere .156/.239/.281 with one homer and eight RBI in 25 games.

Herrmann hit just .156/.239/.281 over 25 games. The Twins will go with Eric Fryer as Kurt Suzuki's backup.
