Pirates SS Jordy Mercer back in starting lineup
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer, who missed five weeks with a knee injury, returns to the starting lineup Monday as the team opens a series with the Marlins. 

Mercer has been supplanted by the solid play of rookie Jung Ho Kang, and his time as a starter may be limited. Mercer is hitting .241 in 81 games this season for Pittsburgh.

Pirates activate SS Jordy Mercer, put 1B Travis Ishikawa on DL
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Pirates have announced that they have activated shortstop Jordy Mercer off the disabled list and placed first baseman Travis Ishikawa on it with a back strain.

Mercer has been out for five weeks with a knee injury. It remains to be seen how often he plays considering the emergence of Jung Ho Kang at that position.

Ishikawa has played sparingly this season with just 12 hits in 59 at-bats over 39 games.

Return of 3B Harrison, SS Mercer creates issues for Piates
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Clint Hurdle has declared that Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison and shortstop Jordy Mercer could be back at some point during the weekend series against San Francisco.

Harrison is rehabbing after thumb surgery. He has been out for seven weeks. Mercer (knee strain) has been sidelined for a month.

Their comebacks will create quite the logjam on the left side of the infield. Jung Ho Kang is the current shortstop with Aramis Ramirez at third.

"I love the job that (Kang) has been able to do in Jordy's absence at short," Hurdle told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "Jordy is a better defender at short, so you have to weigh the two. Kang is a very good defender at third. Ramirez has done a nice job. We've got all those pieces ... I think we have a very good idea of what we want to do and how we want to do it."

Harrison could return to a super-utility role. Mercer would appear to be the odd-man out unless Hurdle prioritizes defense at that position.

Pirates' Josh Harrison, Jordy Mercer could return this weekend
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Pirates may be receiving some reinforcements in the coming days. Injured infielder Josh Harrison (thumb) and Jordy Mercer (knee) are apparently nearing the end of their rehab assignments, and could rejoin the team at some point this weekend

"There's a chance both will be back within this series (vs. the San Francisco Giants)," manager Clint Hurdle said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune

Both players have missed significant time with their injuries and it is not exactly known how Hurdle will juggle them on the left side of the infield along with Jung Ho Kang and Aramis Ramirez. But the Pirates skipper appears to have an idea as to how he will get playing time for all involved.

"I've given it a lot of thought. (Pirates general manager) Neal (Huntington) and I have talked at length,” Hurdle said. "We have a plan that has been formulated that we will get out and get up and running."

Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer began his rehab assignment on Tuesday. Mercer went 0 for 3 with a strikeout, playing nine innings for Triple-A Indianpolis.
