Pirates | Jordy Mercer receives new deal

Fri, 15 Jan 2016 14:59:56 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $2.075 million.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer will be the team's starting shortstop in 2016 and will not have to share the work with another player. He batted .244 with three home runs last season but could still be an option in NL-only leagues.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer breaks out of slump

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 04:49:04 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer had four hits and drove in two runs Monday, Sept. 21, in a 9-3 win over the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) had a .222 average in 23 games since coming back from the disabled list, where he spent time due to a sprained left MCL. With Jung-ho Kang's absence the rest of the way Mercer will see more playing time, so keep an eye on his progress.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang not starting Saturday

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 12:11:42 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Zach Davies Saturday, Sept. 12. SS Jordy Mercer will play shortstop and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Kang ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from all fantasy lineups. Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is just 2-for-20 over the past week and should be ignored in FantasyScore today.

Pirates | Pedro Alvarez sitting against Reds

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 11:38:20 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B Pedro Alvarez is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Sept. 8. 3B Aramis Ramirez is starting at first base and is hitting cleanup against Cincinnati Reds SP Raisel Iglesias. SS Jung Ho Kang moves to third base and SS Jordy Mercer is starting at the 6.

Fantasy Tip: Iglesias is a young pitcher that has been fantastic in the second half of the season. He induces plenty of swings and misses and is a tough matchup for Ramirez ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) tonight.

Pirates | Jung-ho Kang out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 06 Sep 2015 13:49:11 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is not starting Sunday, Sept. 6, against the St. Louis Cardinals. SS Jordy Mercer is batting eighth in Kang's place, against Cardinals SP John Lackey.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off for Kang ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), who is out despite a .278 average in the last week and a 333 mark this season against the Cardinals. Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) hits .222 against Lackey, so his fantasy value is minimal.

Pirates | No Aramis Ramirez against St. Louis

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 14:27:16 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Friday, Sept. 4. SS Jordy Mercer draws into the lineup and is batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Carlos Martinez Friday.

Fantasy Tip: The veteran Ramirez ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) projects to receive a few games off down the stretch. He has struggled to re-accustom himself to Pittsburgh and sports an underwhelming .697 OPS over 33 games. FantasyScore players shouldn't view Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) as anything more than a desperation source of cap relief against Martinez ($7,900, 15.8% of cap) Friday.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer reaches four times

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 19:53:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer went 2-for-2 with two doubles, two runs scored, an RBI and two walks in a 5-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has lost his every-day role to Jung Ho Kang ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), but he can make a useful source of cap relief at FantasyScore when he draws the start against a southpaw.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang sitting vs. Brewers

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 14:03:44 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. SS Jordy Mercer is starting at shortstop and batting eighth against Milwaukee Brewers SP Taylor Jungmann Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has an uninspiring .610 OPS this season and is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Thursday. Kang ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) is having a strong second half with 25 runs, nine home runs, 20 RBI and a .315/.378/.577 slash line. He remains a nice daily play in favorable matchups.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang not in the lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 08:47:09 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Sunday, Aug. 30. SS Jordy Mercer will start at second base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kang ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the near future. Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has gone 4-for-15 since returning from the disabled list, but owners on FantasyScore may be able to find better options.

Pirates | Jung Ho Kang on the bench

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 13:08:31 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung Ho Kang is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Thursday, Aug. 27. SS Jordy Mercer will start at shortstop and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Kang ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Mercer ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has gone 2-for-8 since being activated from the disabled list but is not a great option on FantasyScore.
