Pirates | Jung-Ho Kang won't start in minors

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 15:16:51 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung-Ho Kang, who hit .356 with 40 home runs in the Korean League last year, has "zero chance" of starting in the minors, according to general manager Neal Huntington. He'll be battling SSs Jordy Mercer and Sean Rodriguez for playing time, and Mercer has been serviceable and underrated defensively. Kang could, however, force Mercer into a utility role if he tears it up this spring.

Fantasy Tip: Kang's power is extremely intriguing at a position that lacks it. However, it'll be a mystery how that power translates to the major league level until games begin. If Kang has a good spring and cements a starting job, he'll definitely be worth a flier in the later rounds for his power hack.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer not 100 percent

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 14:57:28 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (forearm) said he is not 100 percent, and he doesn't expect to completely heal.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer's defense keeps him in the lineup, so playing through injury should further hinder his offensive production. You should be able to do better in the majority of leagues.
