DateQuestionAnswer
2014-09-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)What can you tell me about Travis Demeritte?
(Dr. Mike from Milwaukee)
He is very athletic with above-average raw power but big swing-and-miss issues currently. He does some things in his swing that I'm not a fan of, including a deep hand load with some extraneous movement in his trigger, and he displays obvious fastball holes in the zone above the hands and down and in. There's also a tendency for him to pull off with his front side, opening up holes with respect to breaking balls on the outer half from righties. With that said, his bat speed is plus and he has lightning in his wrists, so it's hard to give up on the bat. He'll be an above-average defender at either third or second at the end of the day, but I prefer him at the keystone due to his average arm. I'm a fan despite the oddities in the statistical profile and think he has the ability to tame the swing-and-miss issues because there's so much looseness in the swing (i.e. it's not a rigid, grooved swing that's normally associated with big swing-and-miss issues). I expect him to make more contact next year with a slight decrease in the home run output in High-A, wherever that ends up being. I put a 5 on him and still feel pretty good about it. (Ethan Purser)
2014-07-09 15:00:00 (link to chat)have you seen any of Travis Demeritte? I know it's not your neck of the woods, just wondering what you think of his swing.
(StrawMan from Brimingham)
It's kinda my neck of the woods. Charleston, SC. He's got some flaws and he's a bit forced actually getting the bat going but once it does... contact is loud. There's going to be swing and miss but I like him. Saw him hit a neck high fastball into the DMV parking lot behind Charleston's field. (Ryan Parker)
