Pirates | Jordy Mercer optimistic

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 20:44:55 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (leg, knee) walked with just a slight limp Thursday, July 23, and he said he is optimistic he will return from the 15-day disabled list sooner rather than later.

Fantasy Tip: The original timetable for Mercer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was six weeks, but it looks like there is a chance he could be back sooner. In the meantime, June Ho Kang ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) should make a solid cheaper option at FantasyScore against when he draws a advantageous matchup.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer out six weeks

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 13:04:00 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (knee, leg) will miss the next six weeks because of a sprained medial collateral ligament and a bruised lower leg. Mercer will not need surgery to repair either of the injuries. Mercer was placed on the 15-day disabled list Monday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: Jung Ho Kang ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) will take over as the starting shortstop while Mercer is out of the lineup. He is currently on a six-game hitting streak and has recorded three RBI during that span. Kang could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore against certain matchups.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer carted off

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 18:35:30 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (leg) was carted off against the Milwaukee Brewers after a collision in the second inning Sunday, July 19, and he will return to Pittsburgh to be evaluated

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Mercer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could miss some time, which should make ensure steady plenty time for Jung Ho Kang ($3,900, 7.8% of cap). Kang has been solid at the plate this year, and is worth a look at FantasyScore when he has a favorable matchup.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer up to No. 2

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 09:22:30 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer was moved up to the two-hole Thursday, July 2, with 2B Neil Walker dropped to seventh against a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is a good plug-and-play against the youthful Kyle Ryan today. Mercer is hitting .448 with six RBI in the last seven days. Walker ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has a .417-2-4 line the last seven days, but he's hitting just .200 against lefties this year. Avoid Walker against the lefty.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang at third base Tuesday

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 13:25:27 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is playing third base Tuesday, June 30, against the Detroit Tigers. SS Jordy Mercer is in Kang's spot in the field.

Fantasy Tip: Kang ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has really tailed off as of late with a .188 average, but he is hitting .209-3-12 on the road. That may be a bit too much to pay for Kang, despite his improved road stats. Mercer ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has a .211 road average but is batting .423 in the past week. That may be enough to spend a little money on in FantasyScore.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer delivers in clutch

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 20:35:12 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Jordy Mercer hit a game-winning double in the 10th inning against the Atlanta Braves Friday, June 26. He finished the game 3-for-5 with two doubles.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting just .225 for the year, and despite having his best month of the season, he is no more than a roll-of-the-dice play at FantasyScore.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang starting at shortstop

Sat, 13 Jun 2015 13:05:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang will start at shortstop Saturday, June 13, versus the Philadelphia Phillies. SS Jordy Mercer is back on the bench after starting Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Aside from a three-hit game a couple days ago, Kang ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has had a fairly dormant month of June. He's not the worst starting option at shortstop, however, facing Sean O'Sullivan, who is carrying a 1-4 record and a 4.96 earned run average into today's contest.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang not in starting lineup

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 13:32:56 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, June 9. SS Jordy Mercer is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann.

Fantasy Tip: Kang has just two hits in his last 23 at-bats and has basically fallen back into a utility role with Mercer ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) showing some offensive signs of life in the last week. Still, Mercer (.214-2-11) remains a very weak FantasyScore play on a nightly basis.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer dealing with shoulder injury

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 13:39:32 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (shoulder) is dealing with a minor right shoulder injury and had an ice pack strapped to it Monday, June 8. Mercer is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Monday.

Fantasy Tip: There has never been a lot to like about Mercer's ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) fantasy stock, but with a nagging shoulder injury and the threat of thunderstorms in Pittsburgh Monday, there is no reason to consider him for fantasy lineups, especially FantasyScore lineups. At best, he is a desperation source of cap relief.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer receives another start

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 08:18:06 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer will be the starting shortstop Sunday, June 7, and is batting second in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been on a hot streak lately with eight hits and two home runs in his last six games. Mercer is still hitting only .212 this season and may not be the best option on FantasyScore.
