Pirates Mercer optimistic about quick start this season

Jordy Mercer played in 149 games in 2014, but still didn’t feel comfortable with his starting job until this spring.

Mercer hopes to avoid a slow start at the plate that has hurt him the past two seasons. Mercer’s double plated a run in the opener on Sunday the first step in a strong start. PiratesDugout.com's George Von Benko spoke with Mercer at the ending of spring training.
