Braves' Travis Demeritte: Appears to lose out on everyday gig

For the second day in a row, Demeritte will sit against a right-handed pitcher (Kyle Gibson) while William Contreras replaces him in the starting nine.

Braves' Travis Demeritte: Available off bench

Demeritte (fatigue) is available off the bench Friday against Milwaukee, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports. Demeritte was scratched Wednesday against the Mets due to fatigue after playing 18 innings in a doubleheader the day before. The fact that he remained on the bench even after Thursday's off day could have implied that he was dealing with a more serious issue, but that's seemingly not the case given that he's available to play at least a minor role.

Braves' Travis Demeritte: Late scratch Wednesday

Demeritte was scratched from the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mets due to fatigue, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Braves: Travis Demeritte shows why he deserves to stay up in win over Cubs

The Braves got the win in their series opener versus the Cubs. Max Fried continued his strong work, tossing six innings of one-run ball, with that only run coming from a homer off the bat of Ian Happ. The bullpen also did their job, as they held Chicago scoreless down the stretch, featuring nearly flawless performances from Will Smith, Tyler Matzek, and Kenley Jansen. Just how the Braves drew it up before the start of the season; however, perhaps the best performance of the night came from a new face — Travis Demeritte.
