guess now we will definitely see much more Harrison. With being out 6 weeks do they now make a move sooner for a bat (at SS) or just role out Mercer and sub with Harrison and call up a guy from AAA to take the roster spot.

Today the Pirates have placed infielder Clint Barmes on the 15-day disabled list (retro to 6/30) due to a left groin strain and have recalled infielder Michael Martinez (#3) from Triple-A Indianapolis.

 

Martinez was also with the Pirates from 6/12-15 and made the start at second base on 6/13 in Miami.  He went 13-for-30 (.433) in his last eight minor league games.

Why all the bad comments about Mercer now? He's hitting in the .240's now and is one of the guys driving in runs. His D is very good now. I believe he's deserves to be the starting SS for now and the future.

I wasnt meaning anything bad about Mercer. I was meaning more of Rolling him out everyday with less breaks than he is getting now with barmes or do they go after another infield bat

Understood BLK. You do make a good point with subbing Harrison at short.
