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.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang out Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 13:13:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is out of the lineup Saturday, June 6, against the Atlanta Braves and RHP Julio Teheran. SS Jordy Mercer will start at short and bat eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 5-for-14 in his last three games, with two home runs and a double. Mercer typically struggles against righties, but he could be worth a flier in FantasyScore tournaments, since both of his recent homers have come against right-handers.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang out again

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 10:33:02 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, June 3. SS Jordy Mercer receives the start again at shortstop and is hitting eighth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hit his first home run of the season last night, but that doesn't mean he immediately becomes intriguing on FantasyScore today. Mercer, who's hitting .201 (27-for-134) remains a weak play.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang out Tuesday

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 17:11:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, June 2, against the San Francisco Giants. SS Jordy Mercer will start at shortstop and hit eighth in the order.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) went 2-for-4 in his last start, but he's hitting just .192 for the season. FantasyScore owners shouldn't be paying Mercer any attention.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer in two-hole Wednesday

Wed, 27 May 2015 09:28:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer is hitting second in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Brad Hand Wednesday, May 27.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer's ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) FantasyScore value is boosted a bit with a move to the top of the lineup, but he's still not a very attractive option. He's hitting only .193 (23-for-119) with no home runs and nine RBI on the season.
