Jordy Mercer slugs seventh home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(7/30/14) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer went 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 7-5 loss to the Giants Wednesday.

Mercer has managed to pick up a base hit in five straight games, but Wednesday's home run was his first since June 21. He has hit .254/.296/.370 with seven home runs and 35 RBI in 335 at-bats.

Jordy Mercer emerging as option to bat second vs. LHPs
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/29/14) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer was slotted second in the batting order Monday against the Giants for the third time this season and second time in three games.

Mercer has become an option to hit second when a left-handed starter is on the hill, as was the case Monday with Giants hurler Madison Bumgarner.

"I think he gives us, against left-handed pitching, probably the best dynamic in that spot right now," manager Clint Hurdle said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "From last season into this season, he’s been one of our better hitters against left-handed pitching. He’s a guy we’ve used to play some small ball with, a guy who’s shown an ability to barrel the ball. He’s leading the team in RBIs against left-handed pitching in probably less at-bats than the other guys had."

Mercer is batting .319 with a .351 on-base percentage, .458 slugging percentage and .809 OPS in 40 games against lefties this season.

Jordy Mercer batting .375 in July
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/14) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer drove in two runs during a 5-3 win Sunday against the Rockies. He finished 2 for 3 with one run and one walk.

Mercer drove in both runs with a single in the second inning. It was his second multi-RBI game in July. Mercer is batting .375 (21 for 57) with five doubles and nine RBI in 16 July games.

Jordy Mercer drives in four in win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/4/14) Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer played a big role in an 8-2 win over the Phillies Friday.

Mercer went 2 for 4 with four RBI, as he drove in two runs with each hit. He brought two around on a first-inning single, and then plated  two more with his double in the seventh inning.

Mercer is hitting .243/.283/.359 in 78 games for the Pirates. 

Jordy Mercer remains deep-league option
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/25/14) You might be surprised to know Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer has been the sixth-highest scoring shortstop over the last 28 days in Head-to-Head leagues, and he's been the fourth-ranked shortstop in Rotisserie leagues in that span. Maybe even more shocking is that he ranks ahead of Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki in both formats over the last 28 days.

Mercer has been pretty good since a minor benching in late May. He is batting .295 with a .500 slugging percentage and .823 OPS in his last 22 games. It's been one of the best stretches of his career.

Mercer credits his surge to being able to drive the ball to the opposite field. It seems to be helping his confidence at the plate, but I'm just not convinced this is more than a hot streak.

As I wrote in this week's Waiver Wire, I'm a little more confident in J.D. Martinez and Steve Pearce after they made mechanical tweaks to their approach because at least they showed offensive potential in the minors. Mercer showed some pop in the minors, but he was never a standout offensive player. I still believe Mercer remains more of a Fantasy option for deep leagues.
