Pirates' Jordy Mercer: Sits with minor ailment Friday

Mercer, who didn't play Friday, is dealing with a minor knee injury, AT&T SportsNet reports.

Pirates announcer Joe Block said during Friday's telecast that Mercer has been bothered by a sore knee in recent days. The injury doesn't sound severe and there was no indication given that Mercer would miss significant time. The shortstop has one homer in four career at-bats against Saturday starter Sal Romano and will likely play if healthy.
