RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Despite some decent seasons with the bat in the minors (.727 career OPS at Triple-A), Herrmann was awful in the majors again with a .486 OPS in 45 games. After spending most of his time in the big leagues working as a reserve outfielder with the Twins prior to last season, Herrmann was used mostly as a catcher in 2015 and he had a decent season with the glove. Sporadic playing time likely contributed to his increased strikeout rate (32.7-percent), but his lack of power and low contact rate would appear to limit his upside if he carves out any kind of regular role. Herrmann will compete for the backup catcher role after being traded to Arizona in November.

2015

Herrmann had a bounceback season at Triple-A by hitting .304 with a .878 OPS, but struggled again to hit in the majors (.520 career OPS). He draws walks at a decent rate and makes good contact. His defense is seen as adequate at catcher and he has enough versatility to be an option in the outfield. However, neither his bat nor his glove are strong enough to consider him a future starting catcher, and he'll likely add depth at Triple-A.

2014

Despite hitting just .227/.297/.312 at Triple-A, Herrmann got extensive playing time the final two months of last season with the Twins after Joe Mauer was lost due to a concussion, but failed to make a strong impression by hitting .204/.286/.325. Herrmann draws walks at an outstanding rate and makes good contact. His defense is seen as adequate at catcher and he has enough versatility to be an option in the outfield. He could make Minnesota's roster as the third catcher or move into a backup role if injuries strike, but neither his bat nor his glove are strong enough to consider him a future starting catcher.

2013

Herrmann got a cup of coffee with the Twins in September after a productive season at Double-A where he displayed some power and strong plate discipline. Herrmann draws walks at an outstanding rate and makes good contact. His defense is seen as adequate at catcher and he has enough versatility to be fungible in the outfield. He could make Minnesota's roster as third catcher or move into a backup role if injuries strike, but neither his bat nor his glove are strong enough to consider him a future starting catcher.
