Jordy Mercer is coming off a season where he belted 19 home runs between AA-Altoona and AAA-Indianapolis in 2011. That kind of power makes it hard to write off Mercer, who plays shortstop, a position where power is not often found. Pirates Prospects rated him as the #17 prospect in the organization heading into this season.
In today’s game, Mercer went 0 for 3 with a walk. All of his at-bats can be found below.
