John Mcdonald had back pain DL DL L.
And from that pain the Pirates gain, DL DL L.
John McDonald has been placed on the 15 Day DL after he tweaked his lower back last night. No loss for the Pirates because he isn’t very good. Or young. Or versatile. Or cost effective.
Taking his place on the roster is TiGO favorite Jordy Mercer.
Mercer was sent down on Monday after being unceremoniously dumped for having a stretch of games where his OPS was only .630.
Hopefully he wasn’t too offended by General Manager Neal Huntington taking a big crap on all his contributions during his radio program.
Oh yeah, when he was sent down his OPS was .894.
Mercer had three homers when he was sent down. In 32 plate appearances. Clint Barmes and John McDonald have two homers combined. In 149 plate appearances.
Welcome back Jordy. Hopefully they actually go ahead and use you.
