Pirates shortstop Mercer easing into veteran's role

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) When Jordy Mercer looks around the Pirates' clubhouse, the term he instinctively goes to in referring to his teammates isn't the one he'd always used.

"These kids," Mercer said while scanning the room early one morning last week at LECOM Park, "there's some quality kids coming through here right now. It's awesome to see that- we have an unbelievable group of kids right now."

It wasn't that long ago that Mercer was "the kid" in the Pirates' clubhouse. Now, at 30 and entering his sixth season in the major leagues, the shortstop has become "the veteran" among the Pirates infielders.
