Jordy Mercer Elects Free Agency After Outright

MLB Trade Rumors

The Tigers announced today that they have outrighted infielder Jordy Mercer. The veteran elected free agency after clearing waivers.

Mercer, who is closing in on his 34th birthday, hasn’t received many opportunities after being added to the active roster to open the season. He had made the club after inking a minor-league deal over the offseason.

Once a regular with the Pirates, Mercer joined the Detroit organization last year. After dealing with some injuries early, he ultimately turned in a productive .270/.310/.438 effort over 271 plate appearances. And defensive metrics were less than enthused with his glovework at shortstop.
