The Marlins called their stud OF prospect up today because they wanted him to be eligible for the postseason roster. So what happens? The Marlins are trailing 10-0 in the bottom of the 7th. They load the bases and the pitcher Brian Moehler is due up. Naturally they pinch hit for him with none other than Hermida. You can probably see where I'm going with this. Anyways, he swings at the 1st pitch and takes the second for a ball. The third pitch he hits out of the yard for a Grand Slam in his first major league at-bat. And consider that it was a pinch hit home run. Pretty damn impressive debut.
