Advice: Mercer is feeling better since being hit in the ribs with a pitch on Sunday, but he's obviously not ready to return to game action. Jung Ho Kang will continue to hold down the fort at shortstop until Mercer is ready.

Advice: Mercer is dealing with a bruised rib cage as a result of a hit by pitch in Sunday's game. In addition to an X-ray, he's also had an MRI with contrast dye and a cardiac MRI, both of which came back clean. Mercer warmed up prior to Tuesday's game and planned to do some throwing, as well, although he hasn't been cleared to hit yet. Jung Ho Kang will continue to fill in at shortstop until Mercer is ready.

Advice: Mercer got struck in the ribs by a Matt Garza pitch on Sunday afternoon. X-rays turned up negative, but he has a bruise and some swelling. Jung Ho Kang will start at shortstop and bat eighth against Jake Arrieta.Rotoworld
Advice: Mercer was hit by a Matt Garza pitch during Sunday's game against the Brewers. He's sore and could get a day of rest on Monday as a precautionary measure, but the shortstop won't require a trip to the disabled list. Jung Ho Kang replaced him on Sunday and would start in his place if he does miss any time.

Advice: He was plunked by a Matt Garza offering while squaring around to bunt. Mercer was down on his knees for a while in pain before eventually walking off. He's likely to be sent for X-rays. Jung Ho Kang pinch-ran for him and would be in line to fill in at shortstop should Mercer need to miss some time.Rotoworld
