guess now we will definitely see much more Harrison. With being out 6 weeks do they now make a move sooner for a bat (at SS) or just role out Mercer and sub with Harrison and call up a guy from AAA to take the roster spot.
Today the Pirates have placed infielder Clint Barmes on the 15-day disabled list (retro to 6/30) due to a left groin strain and have recalled infielder Michael Martinez (#3) from Triple-A Indianapolis.
Martinez was also with the Pirates from 6/12-15 and made the start at second base on 6/13 in Miami. He went 13-for-30 (.433) in his last eight minor league games.
Why all the bad comments about Mercer now? He's hitting in the .240's now and is one of the guys driving in runs. His D is very good now. I believe he's deserves to be the starting SS for now and the future.
more in terms of Will harrison Get the AB's and play SS when mercer needs a break, Will Mercer get less breaks or will they bring another player in to keep Harrison playing OF,3B,2B and have new guy sub in for Barmes AB's
