Pirates | Gregory Polanco out of Wednesday lineup

Wed, 20 May 2015 12:44:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates OF Gregory Polanco is out of the starting lineup Wednesday, May 20, against the Minnesota Twins. The move triggered a chain reaction, as 3B Josh Harrison took Polanco's spot in right field, SS Jung-Ho Kang moved over to third and SS Jordy Mercer is playing shortstop.

Fantasy Tip: Polanco ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is struggling mightily in the past 10 games with a .161 batting average. Wednesday's benching is also due in part to Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey being on the mound. Still, Polanco is losing his fantasy value at this high price. Don't be surprised to see this more often if Polanco struggles.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer will not start

Sun, 17 May 2015 09:34:46 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 17.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has struggled during the early part of the season and could lose more playing time if he continues to struggle. Jung-Ho Kang ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will start at shortstop and could be a solid starting option on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Jung-Ho Kang in again

Fri, 15 May 2015 08:32:25 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung-Ho Kang is in the lineup Friday, May 15, over SS Jordy Mercer.

Fantasy Tip: Kang ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting .323-2-3 in 31 May at-bats and is seeing pretty regular playing time at Mercer's expense. Kang is a solid midrange option at SS and Mercer should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer not starting Tuesday

Tue, 12 May 2015 12:45:15 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 12, against the Philadelphia Phillies. SS Jung-Ho Kang is in Mercer's place and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) may be losing some playing time to Kang ($3,100, 6.2% of cap). Mercer only has three hits and a .143 batting average in the last week, so owners may want to stash Mercer away in deep leagues just in case. Otherwise he's a prime candidate for dismissal, as Kang has the hotter bat (.421, one homer and eight hits in the past seven days).

Pirates | Jung-Ho Kang starting again

Wed, 06 May 2015 11:55:17 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jung-Ho Kang is starting at shortstop and hitting sixth in the batting order against Cincinnati Reds SP Mike Leake Wednesday, May 6. SS Jordy Mercer is on the bench again.

Fantasy Tip: Kang ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is seeing more playing time as the Pirates look to jump start their offense, and Mercer looks like the loser right now. It could continue if Kang proves productive. He has enticing power for a shortstop and makes for an attractive under-the-radar option at FantasyScore today.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer hitting second

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:45:49 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer is batting second in the lineup Tuesday, April 28, against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is hitting .188 in the past week, with one run batted in and three hits in 16 at-bats. It may be a shakeup in the lineup, but Mercer still isn't worth picking up with numbers like this.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer returns

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 09:16:03 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (chest) returned to the lineup Thursday, April 23.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,000, 4.0% of your cap) has done very little this young season, but he could have FantasyScore luster later in the year.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer misses third straight

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 21:04:53 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (chest) missed his third consecutive game Wednesday, April 22, against the Chicago Cubs due to a bruised chest.

Fantasy Tip: With Mercer on the shelf it was Jung-Ho Kang ($2,000; 4.0% of cap) making the start at shortstop again. Kang is worth a look if you want to save salary to spread across other positions.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:23:33 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (ribs) is not playing Tuesday, April 21, against the Chicago Cubs. SS Jung-Ho Kang is batting instead.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) may be out a little bit longer after he was hit by a pitch. Kang ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) should not be picked up as he is hitting .077 in his last seven games with a 1-for-13 performance. There are other options out there.

Pirates | Jordy Mercer misses game

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 22:37:45 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer (chest) missed the game Monday, April 20, against the Chicago Cubs due to a bruised chest. He was injured by a hit by pitch Sunday, April 19. Mercer might be ready to return Tuesday, April 21.

Fantasy Tip: Mercer is the better of the two Pittsburgh shortstops from an offensive perspective, and worth a look at just $2,000 (or 4.0% of cap) when he is healthy.
