Called up from Double-A Carolina, Hermida made his major league debut with the Florida Marlins on August 31, 2005. On the first at-bat of his major league career, he did something no one had done. At Dolphins Stadium, he had a pinch-hit grand slam in the seventh inning off the St. Louis Cardinals' Al Reyes on a 1-1 pitch in the Marlins' 10–5 loss. Hermida, who hit 18 home runs and 63 RBI in 118 games in Double-A, batted for pitcher Brian Moehler and homered to right field, some 373 feet away. But he made a name for himself by becoming the third player in baseball history to hit a grand slam in his first game, the second to do it in his first at-bat, and the first to pull it off as a pinch-hitter.

The Marlins' No. 1 draft pick in 2002, and one of the highest-rated minor league players this season, Hermida was a rising star in minor league before being brought up. Probably, the Marlins aren't looking for him to make a significant contribution the way Miguel Cabrera did when he was brought up from Double-A in June 2003, but Hermida has been compared to Braves' rookie Jeff Francoeur since the two were 14 growing up in the Atlanta area. Francoeur has emerged as a strong National League Rookie of the Year candidate.
