Jordy Mercer
33-Year-Old ShortstopSS
Detroit Tigers
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Mercer's overall numbers dropped last year, including his playing time due to injury. By the advanced metrics, Mercer was about as below average (roughly 15%) as he had been over the prior two seasons. He simply lost the ability to compile his numbers as he played 30 fewer games. When he did play, his walk rate dropped and his strikeout rate was a career-worst 20% for the season. Mercer will have a job as long as he continues to play above-average defense, but he will be a bottom-of-the-lineup hitter in a bad Tigers lineup, with zero upside. He will get rostered in single-league formats because the quantity of at-bats is still valued, but understand that there will not be much coming from them. Read Past Outlooks
