Jordy Mercer Learning In The Big Leagues
The Pirates are big believers of keeping their prospects in the minor leagues to get regular playing time until they are truly needed in the major leagues. An exception to that rule has been shortstop Jordy Mercer, who has spent much of the season in the major leagues with limited playing time. He had appeared in 23 games and logged 47 plate appearances, after playing in 56 games and getting 236 trips to the plate for Indianapolis. Mercer hit .287/.357/.421 for the Indians and was selected to play in the Triple-A all-star game.
