    • Demeritte went 2-for-3 with a walk and two solo home runs for Double-A Mississippi in Wednesday's loss to Mobile. The 22-year-old has been having a miserable season at Double-A, and the multi-hit performance was his first in almost two months as he's limped to a .173/.258/.353 slash line over his last 50 games. Demeritte has the skill set to profile as a utility player in the majors if he can further improve his strikeout rate, but with Dansby Swanson and Ozzie Albies seemingly locked into starting roles as the Braves' double-play duo of the future, and Johan Camargo making a case for playing time as well, it may take a change of scenery for Demeritte to get a real shot at a big-league job.

    • Demeritte, 22, is hitting .245/.323/.438 with 10 home runs and five steals (on 11 attempts) in 279 plate appearances for Double-A Mississippi. Most impressively, Demeritte is striking out at a career-best 26.5 percent clip while maintaining a high walk rate (10.4 percent). That is still a pretty high strikeout rate, but his power, on-base skills and potentially elite defense at second base would help compensate for what could be a pretty low batting average most years. He has a chance to profile as the Braves' super utility player of the future, in a Hernan Perez type of role, but may also have the ability to profile as an everyday second baseman in the right situation.

    • Braves' Travis Demeritte: Reassigned to Double-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Demeritte was sent to Double-A Mississippi on Thursday. An excellent defender at second base with plus raw power, Demeritte is certainly intriguing, but he struggles so much to make consistent contact, that he may never be able to make it as a big league regular. He could be a defensive wizard who hits 25-plus homers while being a batting average drain if he can max out.

    • Braves' Travis Demeritte: Traded to Braves
      By RotoWire Staff

      Demeritte was traded to the Braves on Wednesday in exchange for Lucas Harrell and Dario Alvarez, MLB.com's TR Sullivan reports. The 30th overall pick in 2013, Demeritte is heading home, as he was a prep product out of Winder, GA when the Rangers drafted him. He is a classic boom or bust power bat, although he is unique in the sense that he plays second base, which makes him awfully intriguing for dynasty league purposes. Demeritte's .272/.352/.583 slash line along with 25 homers and 13 steals in 331 at-bats this year needs to be taken with a grain of salt, as he was playing half his games at High Desert -- one of the most notoriously hitter-friendly parks in the minors in the already hitter-friendly California League. He is extremely risky, as he has carried a K-rate north of 30 percent at each stop since rookie ball. If Demeritte can find a way to hit even .245 in the big leagues, he could offer Brian Dozier-level production in the counting categories.

    • Demeritte has hit four home runs in his first two games for High-A High Desert. He's 6-for-9 and also has a double. Demeritte hit two home runs in each of his first two games of the season. After an 80-game suspension for using a banned substance last season, a fast start to the season will help turn the page.
