Travis Demeritte was popped for using Furosemide, a diuretic used as a masking agent. #Rangers— Jeff Wilson (@JeffWilson_FWST) June 4, 2015
Demeritte came into the season as our No. 13 ranked prospect and that number has proved to be unlucky as the young infielder will now miss the majority of the rest of the season due to his infraction.
Coming into today, Demeritte was hitting .241/.343/.412 for Low-A Hickory.
In a statement Demeritte said he accepts full responsibility for error in judgement and apologized to org., family and fans.— Anthony Andro (@aandro) June 4, 2015
