Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Back in big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Remains at alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Recalled for doubleheader
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte was recalled to serve as the 29th man for Friday's doubleheader against the Twins, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

The 25-year-old should return to the alternate training site after the twin bill. Demeritte has appeared in nine games this season and is 2-for-13 with a double and three RBI.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is starting in right field and batting sixth in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

With Chicago starting lefty Gio Gonzalez, the Tigers will give Christin Stewart the night off and deploy an outfield of Victor Reyes, JaCoby Jones and Demeritte from left to right. Demeritte has played sporadically this season and could get squeezed from the roster whenever Cameron Maybin (quad) is able to return.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is starting in right field and batting sixth in Saturday's game against the Pirates.

It's the first start of the season for Demeritte, who joined the club July 31 when Cameron Maybin (quad) was put on the IL. Demeritte has had five at-bats in his limited time on the roster, picking up a double and two RBI.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Two RBI off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte appeared off the bench and hit a two-run double in Friday's win over the Reds.

Demeritte did not make the cut out of summer camp but was summoned from the alternate site Friday to replace Cameron Maybin (quad) on the active roster. While he did not start Friday's game, he pinch ran for Christin Stewart in the seventh, stayed in the game and came up with a big hit an inning later. Demeritte projects as a reserve, though a more regular role is within reach if he can make the most of his opportunities.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Joining big-league squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte was recalled by the Tigers on Friday.

Demeritte opened the season at the Tigers' alternate training site but won't wind up waiting long to make his season debut. He'll replace Cameron Maybin on the roster, who hit the injured list with a strained right quadriceps in a corresponding move, though it will likely be Victor Reyes who claims Maybin's starting role. Demeritte hit just .225/.286/.343 in his 48-game debut last season.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Optioned to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte was optioned to the Tigers' alternate training site Monday.

Demeritte battled groin and quadriceps injuries during camp while competing for an outfield depth role on the major-league roster, but Monday's transaction means that he won't open the season on the Tigers' 30-man roster. Although the Tigers have an abundance of depth in the outfield, it wouldn't be surprising to see Demeritte in the big leagues at some point this season. The 25-year-old made his MLB debut last season, hitting .225/.286/.343 with three home runs, 10 RBI and three stolen bases across 48 games.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte (groin) is starting in right field and batting ninth in Monday's intrasquad game.

Demeritte was withheld or limited in workouts for the past week while tending to a sore groin, but his availability for the Tigers' 10th and final intrasquad game suggests he'll be ready to go when Detroit begins its season later this week. If Demeritte is included on the 30-man Opening Day roster, he'll likely function as a fourth or fifth outfielder for the club.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Can't escape groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte's groin injury is lingering and he's now dealing with a sore quadriceps, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old appeared to be past the groin issue as he participated in live batting practice Tuesday, but the injury is apparently still bothersome. Add in the quadriceps issue, and Demeritte figures to be taking it easy for a couple days.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Returns to field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte (groin) took live batting practice Tuesday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Demeritte had been off the field for four days due to groin soreness, but the issue evidently wasn't particularly serious. His brief absence shouldn't significantly impact his case for playing time this season, though he may not be able to carve out a major role even if healthy, as he struggled to a .225/.286/.343 slash line while striking out 33.9 percent of the time in his 48-game debut last year.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Still sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte (groin) isn't participating Monday in the Tigers' intrasquad game, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

The absence marks Demeritte's fourth missed game in a row on account of the sore groin. Demeritte still has a week and a half to move past the issue before the Tigers open their season July 24 in Cincinnati, but the action he's already missed could hurt his case for locking down a reserve outfield job.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Battling groin soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte has been experiencing groin soreness that has kept him off the field for the past two days, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

Demeritte hadn't been present for the team's activities over the past several days, but manager Ron Gardenhire revealed Sunday that the 25-year-old's absence is due to groin soreness. Gardenhire didn't sound too concerned about the issue and said that Demeritte should be back on the field soon. It's unclear whether the issue will impact Demeritte's readiness for Opening Day.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Member of 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is among nine outfielders in the Tigers' 60-man player pool this season.

Demeritte was on the roster bubble before spring training was suspended, and the 25-year-old will still have to battle for playing time with eight other outfielders around. He was having a nice spring, however, and could become an option for the Tigers if a need arises at any point during the shortened season.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Vying for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is a candidate for one of the Tigers' final roster spots when the 2020 season is able to resume, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

With the team optioning Troy Stokes and Willi Castro to Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Demeritte's chances of making Detroit's final roster improved. The 25-year-old outfielder was having a nice spring and got 48 games of experience at the MLB level last year, though he's unlikely to earn enough playing time right away to be a fantasy factor. He'll battle the likes of Jorge Bonifacio and Christin Stewart for a reserve outfielder role.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Homers twice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte went 2-for-3 with two home runs and five RBI in Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Red Sox.

Demeritte hit his first two home runs and collected his first RBI of the spring in a huge performance. The 25-year-old outfielder appeared in 48 games with the Tigers last season and will be hard-pressed to find regular playing time this year, as he appears to be behind the likes of Christin Stewart, JaCoby Jones, Victor Reyes and possibly Cameron Maybin at this point. That could change if Demeritte posts more stat lines like Monday's, though his .225/.286/.343 slash line in 2019 probably paints a more accurate picture of what to expect from him.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Sitting for Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

He is hitting .203 with one home run, zero steals and a 25:2 K:BB in 64 at-bats this month. Brandon Dixon is starting in right field and batting sixth.

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is not starting Wednesday against the Twins.

Demeritte has hit just .183/.210/.283 in the month of April. Victor Reyes starts in right field Wednesday.
