Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 55 | Run: 50 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 45

It certainly hasn't come easily for Demeritte, the Rangers' first-round pick in 2013. He's hit a bunch of home runs, he's struck out a lot, he's served an 80-game suspension and he's been traded (from the Rangers to the Braves late in 2016). His first full season with Atlanta was also his first in Double-A, and it didn't go so well. The Braves didn't add him to the 40-man roster, but he was not selected in last December's Rule 5 Draft.

While his 2017 season was a disappointment, there were some positive signs, including a reduced strikeout rate and a strong August that saw him hit .316/.393/.481, numbers that perhaps can be used as a springboard. He was adjusting to the Braves' approach to hitting, and the organization thinks there's more pure hit tool than he's shown. The raw power is legit, and if he can make more consistent contact, it will show up in games more often.

Demerirtte has already shown he can be an excellent defender at second and has more than enough arm for third. He's athletic enough to play the outfield, so the Braves might expose him to that in 2018 to help maximize his versatility and value as a power-hitting utility type.
