Nationals' Jordy Mercer: Fills in for Josh Harrison

Mercer will start at second base and bat seventh Thursday against the Giants, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. The 34-year-old journeyman is picking up his second start in four games, but he still looks to be a true backup to second baseman Josh Harrison rather than one half of a timeshare at the position. Mercer boasts a reliable glove in the middle infield, but he offers little impact at the plate, especially at this stage of his career.

Nationals' Jordy Mercer: Making little impact

Mercer is slashing .233/.250/.279 through 44 plate appearances with a 1:12 BB:K. While the veteran infielder has been making fairly regular appearances off the bench for the Nats, Mercer hasn't been taking advantage of his opportunities and is still looking for his first RBI. He might last on the roster only until the team feels a younger option like Carter Kieboom or Luis Garcia is ready to give the majors another shot.

Nationals get the infielder they want, sign Jordy Mercer

Looking to add more depth on the infield, the Nationals have signed veteran shortstop Jordy Mercer to a minor league contract. Are the Washington Nationals still searching for a major league third baseman? With Trevor Bauer getting a huge contract from the Los Angeles Dodgers, does that mean they can’t afford Justin Turner, leaving him free to sign with the Nationals? One question fans are no longer asking is, who is going to play shortstop if Trea Turner and Starlin Castro both succumb to injury. The answer, Jordy Mercer.

Jordy Mercer, a retrospective

Growing up, I developed an infatuation for shortstops. That’s reasonable enough, plenty of people have an admiration for that position. But my favorite shortstops generally weren’t all that good; they were fine players, average, nothing to write home about — in other words, they were accessible. I’ve got a childhood best friend who follows that same mantra. Being a Cubs fan, one of his favorite North-siders of all-time — or at least, for a period of time — was Ronny Cedeno, the career -0.7 fWAR shortstop who actually had his best seasons in Pittsburgh. We were/are odd.
