Pirates Promote Jordy Mercer, Demote Yamaico Navarro

The Pirates have talked about making this move, and here it is. Mercer's shortstop defense is, from everything I've seen, major-league quality, and his offense can't be worse than Clint Barmes' has been so far, so it'll be interesting to see how much playing time Mercer gets. The Pirates probably can't pull the plug on their $10.5 million investment quite so soon, but of course they've got to be considering working someone else into the starting shortstop role. Mercer was hitting fairly well at Indianapolis, going .303/.379/.417. It might not work out, of course, but I like this move.
