Fantasy Analysis | 1403730533
Jordy Mercer remains deep-league option
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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.

Jordy Mercer developing into more confident hitter
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

At the end of May, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle decided to pull shortstop Jordy Mercer out of the lineup for two games as he was struggling offensively. It seems the brief time off was beneficial, as Mercer has been on an offensive tear for a few weeks.

He's batting .300 with a .525 slugging percentage and .854 OPS in his last 20 games. Over that stretch, he has three doubles, five home runs, 14 RBI and 16 runs.

"The start of it is hitting balls the other way," Mercer said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "Staying on balls and driving them into both the left and right (field) gaps. Everything kind of takes care of itself after that. Once I get a good hitting position, I let it fly."

Manager Clint Hurdle likes what he sees from the 27-year-old infielder.

"His month of June has been very solid," Hurdle said. "He's getting his swing off. He's playing solid defense. His confidence is growing. It's fun to watch him get in the box now with more intent."

Pirates infielder Jordy Mercer went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-3 win over the Cubs Saturday.

Mercer has homered in back-to-back games as well as three times in the last seven games, the latter of which represents half of his season total. He has hit .234/.268/.362 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 218 at-bats.
