Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 50 | Power: 40 | Run: 60 | Arm: 50 | Field: 50 | Overall: 40

The Angels took a flier on Hermosillo, an athletic two-sport high school standout, giving him $100,000 to sign as a 28th-round pick in 2013. It's taken a while, but he really started to repay their faith and patience in him in '16, with an .869 OPS across two levels of A ball. He played at three levels in '17, got added to the 40-man roster that offseason and made his big league debut in 2018.

Hermosillo continues to be a professional hitter, one who can hit for average and get on base. He can drive the ball to all fields and showed more over-the-fence power in Triple-A in 2018 with a career-high 12 homers, mostly to his pull side. His strikeout rate went up as a result, but he still draws enough walks to help offset it. Hermosillo's speed works on both sides of the ball -- he led the system with 35 steals in 2017 -- and it gives him the range to cover plenty of ground in all three outfield spots.

A sports hernia that slowed him late in 2018 eventually needed offseason surgery, but isn't expected to be a long-range concern. He fits the valuable fourth outfielder profile perfectly and is ready to assume that role in the big leagues if he's healthy.
