by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(8/24/2015) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer, who missed five weeks with a knee injury, returns to the starting lineup Monday as the team opens a series with the Marlins.

Rockies SS Jose Reyes indicates desire to be traded


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) Rockies shortstop Jose Reyes has indicated not very subtly that he wants to be traded from the team that now owns the worst record in the majors.

"I'm at the point in my career what I want to win," he told the Denver Post. "I saw it over and over. I want to win. I don't want to spend the rest of my career on a last-place team. That's not the kind of player I feel I am. ... We'll see what happens here. But in the next couple years, I don't want to waste my time like that."

Reyes, who is under contract through 2017, has not allowed his disenchantment to affect his hitting. He has been especially hot lately with nine hits in his last 22 at-bats.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2015) The Pirates have announced that they have activated shortstop Jordy Mercer off the disabled list and placed first baseman Travis Ishikawa on it with a back strain.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Orioles SS J.J. Hardy continues to play through groin discomfort


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(8/23/2015) Orioles shortstop J.J. Hardy has struggled mightily as of late, but it's now clear that he has been favoring a groin injury that is limiting his play, according to The Baltimore Sun.

Hardy, who entered Saturday hitting 3 of 39 in his last 11 games, hurt his groin on Friday and had to go through pregame drills before being allowed to play this weekend.

"I think it's a bit of an understatement I think to say it's been a grind," Hardy said before testing his groin prior to batting practice Saturday. "I'm just trying to get through it, get my body right, get my swing right, do anything I can."

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
