Demeritte was optioned to Detroit's alternate training site Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports. Demeritte will be sent down to make room for Harold Castro (hamstring), who's set to be activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Friday's game against Cleveland. Demeritte has struggled to a .172/.273/.207 slash line over 18 contests this season.
Demeritte was recalled by the Tigers on Tuesday. Demeritte will fill the roster spot that had been occupied by Cameron Maybin, who was traded to the Cubs on Monday. He played infrequently during his time on the roster earlier in the season, grabbing just two hits in 13 at-bats. He'll presumably fill a fairly minor role again this time around.
Demeritte was optioned to the alternate training site after the postponement of Friday's doubleheader against the Twins. Demeritte was recalled to serve as the 29th man for the twin bill, but he'll be sent back down due to the postponement. The 25-year-old has appeared in nine game this season and is 2-for-13 with a double, three runs and three RBI.

Demeritte was optioned to the Tigers' alternate training site Friday. The 25-year-old is 2-for-13 with seven strikeouts in nine games this season, so he was removed from the 28-man roster in order to activate Cameron Maybin (quadriceps) from the injured list. Demeritte will head to the alternate training site in hopes of rejoining the Tigers later in the season.
