Oscar Mercado hit his first home run of the season as the Indians took down the Royals on Saturday.
Mercado went 3-for-4 with the homer, a double, four RBI, and two runs scored. He's batting .281 with an .843 OPS through 12 games this season. He makes for an interesting speculative add for the start of the second half.
Oscar Mercado appeared in Monday's win as as a pinch-hitter.
The speedy 26-year-old was called up from Triple-A prior to Monday's contest. He wasn't hitting all that well in the minors this season, but Cleveland is desperate for outfield help at the moment. He could see a lot of playing time moving forward, but he isn't worth rostering even in 15-team roto leagues just yet.
Cleveland Indians outfielder Oscar Mercado is being sent down to the team's depth camp, according to manager Terry Francona.
This obviously means that Mercado did not make the team's Opening Day roster. This means the Indians are going to roll with Bradley Zimmer, Jordan Luplow, and the recently converted Amed Rosario in center field. Mercado will likely get called up at some point during the season but he really scuffled in 2020 with a .128/.174/.174 slash line over 86 at-bats.
Cleveland outfielder Oscar Mercado went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in a 3-2 loss to the Cubs on Wednesday.

Cleveland outfielder Oscar Mercado went 1-for-3 with a steal in a 7-5 loss to the Twins on Sunday.
