News came out yesterday that Jordy Mercer was in Pittsburgh, but they wanted to give Alex Presley a little more time before officially making a move. But it looks like Mercer will be placed on the newly made seven-day disabled list, specially put in place for concussions.

Mercer was 1 for 9 in his previous stint with the Pirates where he rarely saw any playing time, but has been one of Indianapolis’ better hitters this season where he has put up a line of .287/.357/.421 with four home runs.

Presley is hitting .268/.311/.505 with four home runs since being recalled on June 5th.
