He is batting .266/.342/.420 with eight homers and 32 RBI. He has been thrown out in all four of his stolen base attempts this year.

Mercer is sporting an unappetizing .215/.323/.299 batting line on the season.
May 24 - 1:55 AM

Jordy Mercer was removed from Monday's game against the Braves due to discomfort in his right hand.

Mercer is considered day-to-day. He sustained the injury when he was hit in the hand by a groundball. Look for him to return to the Pirates' lineup in a day or two.
May 22 - 10:26 PM

Jordy Mercer singled three times in four trips to the plate Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Mercer is batting just .182/.280/.205 on the season.
Apr 17 - 9:24 PM

Jody Mercer went 1-for-4 with a game-tying eighth-inning RBI single in Sunday's win over the Cubs.

Mercer committed a costly fielding error in the seventh inning which allowed the Cubs to score the first run of the game, but he made up for his blunder against Koji Uehara with the bases loaded and nobody out in the eighth inning. His dunk single knotted up the game at 1-1. The Pirates would take an 3-1 lead by the time the dust settled on the frame. With a career .256/.313/.374 triple-slash in the majors, Mercer holds no fantasy intrigue.
