2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Who do you see moving up to occupy the top tier of Rangers position prospects once the big-3 of Brinson, Mazara, and Gallo graduate to the bigs? Guys like Cordell, Ronald Guzman, Andy Ibanez, etc. have looked good to start the season.
(Kristen from Canada)
I think Tate's start to the year has to be seen as very encouraging. Leody Taveras is only 17, but initial reports have been intriguing. I missed Jairo Beras last week, he was out with an injury, but look forward to seeing what him in the next few weeks, and it's supposed to be an interesting bat. I liked some of the things Travis Demeritte can do, though the hit tool's a big question mark. I'll have notes up on him this week. Michael De Leon's glove is outstanding, and Josh Morgan shows interesting versatility and skills.

Basically you're going to see the system morph from a troika of 60+ OFP guys at the top to one that's more balanced around arms and positional depth. (Wilson Karaman)
2016-04-25 23:00:00 (link to chat)Any chance you can hit us with some knowledge on some Low Minor prospects from the Rangers system in Ronald Guzman, Travis Demeritte, & Jairo Beras? What about from the Brewers in Monte Harrison & Isan Diaz?
(David from Atlantis)
Sure! I filed a report on Guzman last summer, you can find that here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/prospects/eyewitness_bat.php?reportid=263

Wasn't a fan. Would it shock me if he turned into a good hitter with moderate power? No. He was really searching for it when I saw him though. Some pleasant elements to his swing, but I didn't love his physicality and he showed no ability to hold himself together when he tried to turn on balls.

Demeritte I just saw and submitted some notes on, those'll be up this week in one of our "Notes From the Field" pieces. Beras was injured during my first look at High Desert, so have to wait on him.

I haven't seen either Diaz or Harrison in person. Was bummed the former got shipped out last winter like 146 other would've-been-great-to-watch-at-Visalia prospects. James Fisher wrote about him last week, you can find that here: http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=28975 (Wilson Karaman)
2015-07-16 20:00:00 (link to chat)Hey George. I know these prospects are very far away and may never make it but what would your order be of Travis Demeritte, Jhoan Urena, Miguel Andujar, and Victor Robles for a Dynasty League? Any thoughts on them?
(kiper90 from Rochester, NY)
Victor Robles is getting a ton of love lately and for good reason. Our prospect staff loves him. He's still light years away at just 18 but he's a plus, plus runner with above average pop...He's a definite sleeper...If Demeritte ever figures out the strikeout problems which have plagued him, there's a ton of power there at 2B to like. (George Bissell)
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)
