Rangers prospect INF Travis Demeritte was 2-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI on Thursday for Low-A Hickory.
The No. 30 overall pick in last year's draft, Demeritte began his full-season debut by going 1-for-12 through his first four games. Since then, though, the 19-year-old has picked up his pace at the plate, as he's now 3-for-10 with three bombs and five RBI in his last three contests. In his professional debut last summer, Demeritte batted .285/.411/.444 with 12 extra-base hits, five stolen bases and a 49/29 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 30 games for the Rangers' affiliate in the Arizona League.

Rangers agreed to terms with first-round pick SS Travis Demeritte.

According to Baseball America's Jim Callis, Demeritte will receive $1.9 million, which is a tad more than the assigned value for the 30th pick of $1.7312 million. Demeritte is a raw infielder that probably won't stay at shortstop, but the Rangers like his upside.

Rangers picked high school shortstop Travis Demeritte 30th overall Thursday.

This was supposed to be a very weak draft for middle infielders, but four shortstops went in the first round. Demeritte, though, is the least likely of the group to stay at the position, which would have been the case even if he wasn't drafted by the team that already has Elvis Andrus and Jurickson Profar. The Rangers probably see him as a long-term third baseman.
