Hermida Tossed in Rehab Game
Hermida was also seen exchanging words with catcher Robinzon Diaz before leading off the ninth inning. Coaches separated the two before anything physical could become of the altercation. Hermida struck out looking during that at bat.
Both manager Tim Cossins and Hitting Coach Darin Everson were ejected from the game as well for arguing with the home plate umpire after Hermida's ejection. Everson could be seen covering home plate with dirt using his feet as some sort of statement toward the umpire. Cossins tossed his hat over the pitchers mound once he was ejected.
Hermida has gone 3 for 15 with 5 strikeouts and 3 walks in his rehab stint with Jupiter, 1 for 7 against Dunedin. Dunedin won the game 7-1.
