Reds Vs. Pirates Lineups: New Addition Jordy Mercer Won't Start Against Homer Bailey And Cincinnati

Here’s the Reds’ lineup in the Pirates’ matchup against Cincinnati Tuesday.

Zack Cozart SS
Drew Stubbs CF
Joey Votto 1B
Brandon Phillips 2B
Jay Bruce RF
Ryan Ludwick LF
Todd Frazier 3B
Devin Mesoraco C
Homer Bailey P

And here’s the Pirates’ lineup:

Jose Tabata LF
Josh Harrison SS
Andrew McCutchen CF
Pedro Alvarez 3B
Neil Walker 2B
Garrett Jones RF
Matt Hague 1B
Rod Barajas C
Charlie Morton P

New addition Jordy Mercer, a shortstop, evidently is with the team, but Harrison starts at short on Wednesday. Clint Barmes sits, which is a pattern that appears likely to continue with Mercer in the fold. The rest of the lineup looks fairly normal, with Matt Hague starting at first, as has been the case in the last few games. Garrett Jones starts in right field against the righty Homer Bailey.
