  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Re-signs with Cubs

    Hermosillo agreed to a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Cubs on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    Hermosillo was non-tendered by the Cubs on Tuesday but will rejoin the club on a major-league deal. He appeared in 16 games for Chicago and hit .194/.237/.500 before going down with a forearm strain in early September and missing the rest of the season.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Hermosillo (forearm) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Hermosillo's move to the 60-day injured list doesn't come as a surprise, as the Cubs announced last week that the outfielder will miss the remainder of the season. The 26-year-old will require several weeks to recover but should be ready for the start of spring training in 2022.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Slated to miss remainder of season

    Hermosillo (forearm) will miss the remainder of the 2021 campaign, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Hermosillo landed on the 10-day injured list with a left forearm strain Wednesday, and acting manager Andy Green said that the injury will require several weeks of recovery. While the 26-year-old will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, he should be ready for the start of spring training in 2022. Hermosillo appeared in 16 games for the Cubs this year and hit .194 with three doubles, two home runs, seven RBI and five runs.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Placed on injured list

    Hermosillo was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left forearm strain Wednesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Cubs revealed Tuesday that Hermosillo was experiencing discomfort while swinging the bat, and he'll require time on the IL after he was diagnosed with a strain. It's not yet clear when he's expected to return, but Nick Martini's contract was selected from Triple-A Iowa to take his place as depth in the outfield.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Day-to-day with forearm injury

    Hermosillo is day-to-day with a left forearm injury, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    The outfielder is still experiencing discomfort when swinging the bat and the Cubs don't want to push it. He hasn't played since Friday and will return to his platoon role in the outfield once healthy.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Strong showing Friday

    Hermosillo went 3-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and two total runs scored in Friday's 6-5 win over Pittsburgh.

    The outfielder came a triple shy of the cycle in his first multi-hit effort of the season. Hermosillo started the scoring with a two-run single in the second inning and added a solo shot in the fourth. He's up to three homers, seven RBI, five runs scored and a pair of doubles through 14 contests and is mostly seeing a short-side platoon role in center field as Rafael Ortega typically starts against right-handed pitching. Hermosillo may also occasionally spell Jason Heyward or Ian Happ at the corner outfield spots.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Pops second homer

    Hermosillo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Friday's 17-13 loss to the White Sox.

    Hermosillo ended a stretch of 13 straight runs scored by the White Sox when he took Mike Wright deep in the seventh inning. It was the second homer of the season for Hermosillo, who has added four RBI, three runs scored and a double through 24 plate appearances since he was brought up Aug. 17 from Triple-A Iowa.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Hits first 2021 home run

    Hermosillo went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Reds.

    Hermosillo hit his first home run of the season and just the second of his MLB career in the second inning against Tyler Mahle. The 26-year-old outfielder just had his contract selected by the Cubs on Tuesday. After slashing .310/.448/.600 across 42 games for Triple-A Iowa, Hermosillo may get a long look from a rebuilding Chicago squad the rest of the way.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Contract selected by Cubs

    Hermosillo's contract was selected by the Cubs on Tuesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    The rebuilding Cubs are likely to spend the remainder of the season auditioning players for the future. Hermosillo has earned his chance to make his case after hitting .310/.448/.600 with 10 homers and seven steals in 42 games for Triple-A Iowa. He hasn't had much success at the plate in 118 MLB plate appearances thus far in his career, however, slashing just .188/.288/.287 while hitting a single home run. Dan Winkler was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Cubs' Michael Hermosillo: Signs minors deal with Cubs

    Hermosillo agreed to a minor-league deal with the Cubs on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

    It is unclear if this comes with an invite to big-league spring training, but it probably will. The Cubs may be nearing a rebuild, which could open up more playing time in the outfield in the coming years. Hermosillo, 25, has struggled in 118 MLB plate appearances (63 wRC+). He hit .243 with 15 home runs and six steals in 62 games at Triple-A in 2019.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Outrighted to alternate camp

    Hermosillo cleared waivers Friday and was outrighted to the Angels' alternate training site.

    Hermosillo will remain in the Angels' organization after being designated for assignment Sunday. The team has plenty of outfield depth on the active roster, so it's unlikely that Hermosillo would play a significant role in the majors unless injuries occur.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: DFA'd by Halos

    Hermosillo was designated for assignment by the Angels on Sunday.

    Hermosillo has seen sporadic big-league action since making his debut in 2018, but he's been unable to stick on the roster with a .188/.288/.287 slash line in 118 plate appearances. Opportunities likely will remain limited for the 25-year-old while Mike Trout, Brian Goodwin, Jo Adell and Justin Upton remain healthy.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Comes up big late

    Hermosillo went 1-for-1 with an RBI single, a walk and a stolen base in a loss to Houston on Sunday.

    Hermosillo entered the game as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning, but he ended up getting two plate appearances as the game went into extra frames. After Houston scored a run in the top of the 10th, Hermosillo responded with a leadoff single in the bottom of the inning to plate the runner at second and tie the score. He then maneuvered himself into scoring position by stealing second base, but the Angels stranded him at third and ultimately took the loss. Hermosillo has largely served as a pinch hitter and defensive replacement this season, collecting two hits and a walk over 10 plate appearances.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Gets demoted

    The Angels optioned Hermosillo to their alternate training site Monday.

    Hermosillo's removal from the active roster likely sets the stage for the return of Mike Trout (personal), who is expected to be activated from the restricted list ahead of the Angels' next game Tuesday in Seattle. After claiming a spot on the Angels' Opening Day roster, Hermosillo appeared in seven of the team's first 10 contests of the season, going 2-for-8 with two RBI and a stolen base.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Wins roster spot

    The Angels recalled Hermosillo from their alternate training site Thursday.

    Hermosillo will crack the Angels' 30-man Opening Day roster as a reserve outfielder. He could end up serving as a platoon mate for Brian Goodwin initially, but Hermosillo's hopes for earning even semi-regular playing time could take a hit if top prospect Jo Adell is added to the active roster at any point in the 60-game season.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Sent to minors

    Hermosillo was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.

    The 25-year-old made a strong case for a roster spot in spring training with a 1.326 OPS, two doubles, two homers and two stolen bases in eight games, but it appears he'll be in the minors once play resumes. Hermosillo and top-prospect Jo Adell will be the top options for promotion should the Angels suffer any outfield injuries.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Makes case for roster spot

    Hermosillo is a strong contender for one of the Angels' final roster spots, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    While the team has yet to make a decision on who will fill the extra-outfielder role, Hermosillo appears to have the edge due to a strong spring in which he hit .450 with two home runs, seven RBI and a pair of stolen bases. Among other contenders for a roster spot, Luis Rengifo and Taylor Ward hit .240 and .308, respectively, in Cactus League play.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Back in action Sunday

    Hermosillo (hip) is starting in center field and batting third in Sunday's split-squad game against the Reds.

    The 25-year-old has been sidelined throughout the past week with hip discomfort, but his return to the field Sunday indicates it wasn't a serious issue. Hermosillo will continue competing for a bench spot on the Opening Day roster.

  • Angels' Michael Hermosillo: Out with hip issue

    Hermosillo is battling right hip discomfort, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

    The fact that the issue is being referred to as "discomfort" suggests that Hermosillo isn't destined for a long absence, but his expected return date is not yet clear. Hermosillo is competing for a bench spot this spring.
