Pirates looking at mental approach to alleviate Jordy Mercer's slump
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

For the second-consecutive season, Pirates shortstop Jordy Mercer has started the season in a slump and manager Clint Hurdle said Mercer's struggles may be mental, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"That's what we worked last year, the mental part of it first, and then we got into the physical glitch or the mechanical glitch," Hurdle said. "It's similar in some areas, very similar in some areas. We've got to get his hands to work better."

Mercer is hitting .171 in 111 at-bats this season and Hurdle hopes giving Mercer a few games off will help him correct his swing.

"If we've got a mechanical situation where our hands aren't going where we want them to go, why?" Hurdle said. "What are you trying to do? What are you trying to generate? Are you trying to generate power, are you trying to generate lift?"

Pirates hope day off for Gregory Polanco pays off
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

With Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco in an 0-for-18 slump, manager Clint Hurdle gave Polanco the day off Wednesday in the hopes of turning his luck around, reports the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

"It's been a hard stretch here lately," Hurdle said. "He's fighting, he wants to play, he wants to compete. I think sometimes you've got to unplug him. He's out there [Wednesday] trying to get some work in and do some things. We'll take it one day at a time."

Pirates SP Tyler Glasnow on DL in minors with ankle injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates starting pitcher prospect Tyler Glasnow was placed on the minor-league disabled list Wednesday due to a sprained right ankle he suffered May 6, per MiLB.com. Glasnow suffered the injury while sliding into second base.

Glasnow, who is pitching for Double-A Altoona, missed one start before returning to action Saturday. However, he lasted just 3 2/3 innings, while allowing a season-high six runs (five earned).

Glasnow, who is considered the 13th-best prospect by MLB.com, is 2-2 with a 2.76 ERA in six starts this season. He has 29 strikeouts in 29 1/3 innings.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates center fielder Andrew McCutchen went 3 for 5 with a solo home run in his team's 4-3, 13-inning loss to the Twins on Wednesday.

The Pirates found themselves immediately behind after the Twins scored three runs in the top of the first inning, but McCutchen was finally able to even the score with his eighth-inning blast to eventually send the game into extras. He has hit .238/.333/.399 with five home runs, 23 RBI and two stolen bases in 143 at-bats.

Pirates' Jeff Locke strikes out six in quality start vs. Twins
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke didn't factor into the decision on Wednesday after giving up three earned runs on seven hits and two walks in six innings while striking out six in his team's 4-3, 13-inning loss to the Twins.

Locke surrendered a three-run double in the first inning but was able to settle down and keep the Twins off the scoreboard over the remainder of his outing. He was even taken off the hook for the loss after Andrew McCutchen slugged a solo home run in the eighth.

Locke owns a 5.28 ERA and 36:16 K:BB ratio in 46 innings. He's in line to face the Marlins on Tuesday.
