So now comes the question....

With Hermosillo and Goodwin out this opens up more room for Ward/Marsh. 

Does that make one of Adell/Marsh more available? 

No, it makes them more valuable within the organization that now have less depth.

I could see Hermosillo catching on and being a good 4th outfielder for someone. He's got a bit of everything, but needs playing time and health. He's had all of 118 PA spread out of three years...hard to judge a player on that. I would have liked to keep him, personally.

Herm is probably that quintessential AAAA player that will bounce around for several years.  He might catch somewhere at some point where a team gives him a legit shot because of that power speed combo and the fact that he can play a solid defensive CF.  Probably in a platoon role with a team that isn't in contention who can wait around a bit to see if something clicks.  He'll never have that opportunity with the halos.  I think there's about a 10%, maybe 20% chance he works his way into getting major league at bats.  The biggest problem is that he's just not a very good hitter.  

If anything happens it'll be when he's 28/29 and several threads will be made about some torrid start he's having.  He's worth taking a shot on if you've got the space as a high ceiling low floor type that's most likely going to impress you with his raw talent that won't actually translate into major league success.
