Jordy Mercer: Steps away from baseball

Mercer announced Tuesday via his personal Twitter account that he has retired from professional baseball. Considering he turned 35 years old in August and didn't land an invitation to a big-league camp during the offseason, Mercer's decision to retire doesn't come as a major surprise. Mercer spent parts of 10 seasons in the majors with the Pirates, Tigers, Yankees and Nationals, compiling a .256/.315/.386 slash line and 66 home runs over 950 career games.

Nationals' Jordy Mercer: Pops homer in loss

Mercer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 4-2 loss to Boston. The infielder went yard in the eighth inning, but that was the last of Washington's scoring in the contest. Mercer has hit safely in five of his last six games, going 6-for-25 (.240) in that span. He has a .261/.317/.369 slash line across 120 plate appearances while adding two homers, seven RBI and 13 runs scored in 44 contests this year. Mercer has seen less than a short-side platoon role at second base with Luis Garcia since the former returned from a calf injury in mid-September, although Mercer has also seen some playing time at the hot corner.
