Pirates' Jordy Mercer: Provides only offense against Cubs

Mercer went 1-for-3 with a solo home run during Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Mercer is turning in a sneaky fantasy run: a 1.062 OPS with 14 extra-base hits, 14 RBI and 13 runs through his past 24 games. The 30-year-old shortstop appears set to take a run at a career year, and he's currently providing serviceable fantasy numbers for a middle infielder. Mercer is probably unlikely to maintain his current pace, though.
