Jordy Mercer has finally made his way to Pittsburgh. No telling if he will play or not but he’s here.
He is taking the place of Neil Walker who the Pirates didn’t put on the DL after CUTTING HIS HAND TO THE BONE.
This move is retroactive to 4/27. That means the Pirates played with a short bench for five games on the off chance that Neil Walker is Wolverine and able to recover from a bone deep gash over night.
Right now Mercer is hitting .333/.404/.448 at AAA Indianapolis. He deserves a shot to play, often. He won’t get it because he’s not old enough but John McDonald should never play over him.
