About two weeks ago the biggest topic surrounding Pirates baseball was the fate of Jordy Mercer. Some argued that he should have remained in the majors, with John McDonald being released, Brandon Inge taking McDonald’s role, and Mercer taking Inge’s...
The Pittsburgh Pirates have recalled second baseman Jordy Mercer from their Triple-A Indianapolis minor league affiliate. Mercer takes the active roster spot of John McDonald who is on the 15-day disabled list with a bad back.

After Jordy Mercer’s first home run today, Greg Brown said the Pirates will have a difficult decision coming up, deciding what to do with the infielder. After the second homer, Brown said the same thing. I saw a lot of the same on Twitter today during the game, possibly repeating...
Jordy Mercer could be joining the Pirates.
Dan Zangrilli of 93.7 The Fan reports that Jordy Mercer is likely joining the Pirates.
Hearing from sources that Jordy Mercer will likely be brought up from AAA… #Pirates @937thefan

No word on what the corresponding move would be. The two possibilities that come to mind would be Neil Walker...
Tonight I saw two different opinions on the upside of Jordy Mercer. First, Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus tweeted that Mercer could be an “OK utility player” when asked about Mercer’s upside. Then, in Kristy Robinson’s notebook, Clint Hurdle said that he feels Mercer could eventually be a starting shortstop.
I lean closer to Hurdle’s opinion. I think Mercer can...
After almost two months of watching Clint Barmes‘ unbearably awful struggles at the plate, Pirate fans were very happy to see shortstop prospect Jordy Mercer called up from Indianapolis at the end of May. Mercer wasn’t/isn’t exactly an eye-popping prospect, but had steadily moved through the system and had been hitting the ball very well at the time in Indianapolis.

It’s been a wet and rainy day in Pittsburgh, but the Bucs and Reds will at least try to get game two of this series in tonight. The Pirates will be looking to go over .500 and creep within two games of Cincinnati.

I definitely approve of this move. And hopefully it means that Mercer will be replacing Clint Barmes as the Pirates’ every day short stop for the foreseeable future, relegating Barmes to the bench.
Mercer, 25, was the Pirates’...

Jordy Mercer is coming off a season where he belted 19 home runs between AA-Altoona and AAA-Indianapolis in 2011. That kind of power makes it hard to write off Mercer, who plays shortstop, a position where power is not often found. Pirates Prospects rated him as the #17 prospect in the organization heading into this season.
In today’s game, Mercer went 0 for 3 with a walk. All...
