Mercer Back, McCutchen Sent Down

Jordy Mercer is back from paternity leave. To make room on the roster, Daniel McCutchen was optioned to AAA.

McCutchen faced two batters while he was up, surrendering a walk and a home run in Tuesday’s loss. Mercer is hitting .212/.250/.404 over 56 plate appearances in his rookie year. He’ll resume his role as back up middle infielder.

Kevin Correia returns to the bullpen as the Pirates go back to a five man rotation.
