Miami Marlins Top 50 Of All-Time: 40. Jeremy Hermida

There was a time when Jeremy Hermida regularly batted second or sixth as the Florida Marlins starting right fielder. Today we look back at his contributions to the Black and Teal.

Jeremy Hermida, a right fielder, was selected by the Marlins in the first round of the 2002 amateur draft with the 11th overall pick. He made his first appearance with the club on the last day of August, 2005. He would stay with the club through the rest of the season, hitting .293 with four home runs in 23 games.

In 2006, Hermida made Florida's opening day roster as the starting right fielder. Although he was slowed by two stints on the DL, he hit .251 in 99 games for the Marlins, hitting five home runs and 28 RBI.

2007 was Hermida's best season with the club, as he set career highs with a .296 batting average, 18 home runs and 63 RBI in 123 games.

He would continue to contribute to the Marlins throughout 2008 and 2009, hitting a combined .253 with 30 home runs and 108 RBI.

He was traded to the Boston Red Sox after the 2009 season for Jose Alvarez and Hunter Jones, and went on to play for the Oakland Athletics, the Cincinnati Reds and most recently with the San Diego Padres.

He totalled 57 home runs and 210 RBI in 516 games for Florida, averaging .265 with a  .769 OPS over his five seasons.
