Pirates' Jordy Mercer collects two hits Sunday

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/13/15) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer went 2 for 5 with an RBI and two runs scored in his team's 10-2 win over the Brewers Sunday.

Mercer got the day off Saturday and came back with his first multihit game of the season. He was moved up to the No. 2 spot in the lineup Sunday with the team resting leadoff hitter Josh Harrison. Mercer is 5 for 18 with two walks, two RBIs and two runs in five games.

Pirates' Jordy Mercer entrenched as starting shortstop

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/23/15) Pirates infielder Jordy Mercer is firmly entrenched as the team's starting shortstop and said Monday he was never worried about the perceived competition with Jung Ho Kang, MLB.com reports.

"I never worried about it one bit, to be perfectly honest," Mercer said. "That's kind of the way I always am. Put my head down and keep playing."

Mercer opened the spring with just three hits in 23 at-bats but has managed seven hits in his last 11 at-bats to raise his spring average to .293. General manager Neal Huntington threw his support behind Mercer earlier in March.

"We love Jordy Mercer," Huntington said in early March. "The narrative is, he's the guy. He had a really tough start last year, but then was one of the best shortstops in the league. Shortstop is not a competition."

"Yeah, any time somebody says something like that about you -- especially coming from management -- it's really good to hear," Mercer said Monday. "Still, it's not going to change how I play. I just continue to push forward."

Pirates SS Jordy Mercer looks to build from strong 2014 finish

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/5/15) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer worked on improving his defensive struggles last year with Clint Barmes and his offensive struggles with first-base coach Nick Leyva, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"What's the best thing that Barmes could do for our ballclub? That's to tutor this young kid, and that’s exactly what he did," Leyva said. "It was phenomenal to watch that."

Mercer hit .199 through the first 49 games last season. He bounced back with a .278 batting average, a .333 on-base percentage, 11 home runs and 19 doubles since June 2. Now that Mercer is the incumbent starter at shortstop, he is hoping to use his experience as an advantage to beat out Korean shortstop Jung Ho Kang for playing time throughout the season.

"You can't substitute for innings played, you can't substitute for at-bats, you can't substitute for innings pitched at this level," Leyva said. "You talk all you want about it, but when you get 450 at-bats, you've had a major league season. When you've played 140 games, you've played a major league season. The only way you're going to get those is by competing and getting the job done."

Pirates' Kang clarifies comment about being better than Mercer

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/15) Pirates infielder Jung Ho Kang made some headlines in the offseason when he was quoted as saying he "can play better" than Pirates starting shortstop Jordy Mercer.

But Kang said Wednesday he wasn't trying to put down Mercer and was trying to convey he's most comfortable at shortstop.

"That was a little bit of a misinterpretation. I don't want to steal his position. It's all about competition," Kang said, per MLB.com. "I want to have a friendly competition with all of the players and work along with all of them -- like a synergy.

"It's not like I'm stealing it, but if I get a chance, I would like to play shortstop. If I get another opportunity at another position, I'm open to playing another position."

Huntington: Pirates' Kang 'horrified' at portrayal of Mercer quote

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/15) Pirates general manager Neal Huntington told MLB Network Radio on Wednesday the team is "trying to reduce expectations up front" for shortstop Jung-ho Kang in an effort to "allow him to transition and become comfortable."

The expectations are certainly riding high for Kang, who is coming off a 40-homer season in Korea. Kang also put himself in a tough position a few weeks ago when he was quoted as saying he "can play better than" Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer.

Although, Huntington said Kang was "absolutely horrified" how the quote about winning the shortstop job over Mercer was portrayed in the U.S., per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

"The one mistake I made through Kang process is not coming out and saying how much we like Jordy Mercer," Huntington told MLB Network Radio. "We like him."

Huntington said Kang is "most comfortable" at shortstop, but added he is going to play at second and third base in spring training as well.
