The San Diego Padres designated outfielder Jeremy Hermida for assignment, reports Jeff Sanders of the North County Times:

In corresponding roster moves, the Padres called up left-hander Andrew Werner and optioned right-hander Brad Boxberger to Triple-A.

Hermida appeared in thirteen games for the Padres, collecting six hits, including a double and a triple, over twenty-four at-bats. The 28-year-old has spent a majority of the season with San Diego’s Triple-A affiliate, where he’s hit .252/.318/.358 with seven doubles and three home runs over 151 at-bats.

The Padres selected Hermida off waivers last August from the Cincinnati Reds. He posted an OPS of .754 over twenty games after joining the club.

Hermida spent most of his career with the team that drafted him, the Miami Marlins. Over eight seasons in the majors, Hermida owns a career line of .257/.334/.415.

Given his age and career numbers, why hasn't Hermida been able to stick in the majors?
