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: Rides pine for Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is not starting Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Demeritte will head to the bench for the second half of Thursday's twin bill after going 1-for-5 with a solo home run -- his third of the season -- in Game 1. Victor Reyes is covering right field in his stead in Game 2, with Harold Castro starting in center field.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tigers' Travis Demeritte: Gets rest day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Demeritte is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins.

Demeritte will get just his second day off since making his MLB debut Aug. 3. The rookie got off to a promising start to his stint with Detroit but faded badly at the end of August, going 1-for-20 with 10 strikeouts over his last six games of the month. Victor Reyes will fill in for Demeritte in right field.

August 21, 2019 04:04 PM

Demeritte will face Justin Verlander in his return to action.
