News: Mercer is batting .147 (5-for-34) with zero extra-base hits in his last 12 games dating back to Aug. 14. Impact: He missed time in mid-August with forearm soreness and hasn't been the same at the plate since. Mercer hit .306/.362/.455 from the beginning of June through Aug. 14, but he doesn't look like the same batter right now.(RotoWire, )

News: Mercer (forearm) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Braves. Impact: The 27-year-old will return after missing four starts with the forearm injury, but he intimated that he's still less than 100 percent. While Mercer suggested he'll be fine to play through it so long as his pain doesn't get worse, it would make sense if the Pirates provided him additional maintenance in the short term.(RotoWire, )

News: Mercer (forearm) is not in the lineup Monday vs. the Braves, reports. Impact: Mercer has been able to pinch-hit in two of his last three games, so although he remains out of the starting lineup, it doesn't appear that the team is considering placing him on the DL quite yet. He was able to take ground balls, but did not make any throws while working out during the pregame session. Expect Mercer to be available Monday in a pinch-hitting capacity yet again.(RotoWire, )
