Tigers' Jordy Mercer: Signs with Tigers

Mercer agreed to a one-year, $5.25 million deal with Detroit on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of FancredSports reports.

Mercer has found a new home after spending the past decade within the Pirates' organization. The 32-year-old should slot in as the starter at shortstop on the strength of his defensive acumen. Across 117 games this past season, Mercer slashed .251/.315/.381 with six home runs, 39 RBI and two stolen bases.
