News: Mercer is not in the lineup Monday against the Reds. Impact: Mercer has started at shortstop in 10 of the Pirates' first 12 games, but will give way to Clint Barmes on Monday. Mercer is off to a slow start this season, posting a .143 average with zero extra-base hits, so manager Clint Hurdle likely made the temporary switch in hopes of getting the Pirates' bats going.(RotoWire, )

News: Mercer committed his second error of the season Sunday and went 0-for-3 against Milwaukee. He has just three hits in his last 27 at-bats. Impact: The Pirates pretty much gave Mercer the starting reigns at shortstop heading into 2014, but if he doesn't start showing something soon, he could lose playing time. Sunday's error was 100 percent mental and manager Clint Hurdle is unlikely to quietly stand by. Fortunately for Mercer, Clint Barmes is the only other regular shortstop on the roster.(RotoWire, )
