Phillies place newly-acquired Matt Harrison on disabled list
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/31/15) The Phillies placed left-handed pitcher Matt Harrison on the 15-day disabled list, per the News Journal.
Harrison was just acquired by the Phillies, from Texas, for Cole Hamels. He hadn't appeared in a game for the team. He's suffering from lower back inflammation.
Phillies receive P Matt Harrison, five prospects for Hamels
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/31/15) The Phillies have at least received strength in numbers from the Rangers in return for stud left-hander Cole Hamels. They get six players back, including four pitchers.
The lone experienced hurler is left-hander Matt Harrison, who is coming off a back injury that has limited him to three starts this season.
The only non-pitchers are catcher Jorge Alfaro and outfielder Nick Williams, who has compiled a fine .299/.357/.470 slash line this season with 13 homers and 10 stolen bases at Double-A Frisco. He has put together the best season of all the players Philadelphia is getting back. Alfaro is at .253/.314/.432 at Frisco.
The Phillies also get back right-handers Jake Thompson, Alec Asher and Jerad Eickhoff. Thompson is 6-6 with a 4.72 ERA for Frisco with 78 strikeouts in 87 2/3 innings. Asher is 4-10 with a 4.43 ERA at Triple-A Round Rock. Eickhoff is 10-4 with a 4.11 ERA with the same team. He has fanned 107 in 111 2/3 innings.
Thompson is considered a top-50 prospect by Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus. MLB.com ranks him as a top-100 prospect. Williams and Alfaro are also among Baseball Prospectus' top-50 and MLB.com's top-100 lists.
Report: Harrison dealt to Phillies as part of Hamels swap
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(7/30/15) Former All-Star starter Matt Harrison, who returned to the majors this season after suffering a serious back injury, is one of the major names being shipped to the Phillies from the Rangers as part of the big trade for starter Cole Hamels.
Harrison underwent spinal fusion surgery to fix a back problem that has limited him for the past three seasons. He recently returned to the Rangers rotation, making three starts, including a rough outing Monday in which he allowed six runs.
He is owed $28 million over the final two years of his contract. The Phillies will also receive a host of Rangers' prospects, including catcher Jorge Alfaro and outfielder Nick Williams.
The trade has not been officially announced by either team.
Rangers SP Matt Harrison allows six runs in Monday's loss
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/27/15) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison struggled throughout his start Monday against the Yankees, which the Rangers lost 6-2.
Harrison allowed six runs on six hits over six innings of work. He also struck out two and walked two. He gave up a two-run home run to Didi Gregorius in the third inning and a solo home run to Alex Rodriguez in the sixth. His ERA rose from 5.40 to 6.75.
Harrison (1-2) has one quality start over his three starts this season.
Matt Harrison earns first win of year for Rangers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison earned his first win of the season in his second start, Tuesday against Colorado.
Harrison allowed seven hits in six shutout innings. He evened his record at 1-1, matching last year's record and doubling his win total since the start of 2013
|2014 summary: Last year was another lost year for Matt Harrison, who made only four starts in late April and early May before shutting down with more back issues. He had spinal fusion surgery on June 2 and still faces a long recovery.|
Playing time status: The last time Harrison pitched extensively in the majors, he won 18 games for the Rangers, but that was back in 2012. Last year's surgery was similar to the one Prince Fielder had, and Harrison had already undergone three back surgeries before then, making him less than certain to get back to pitching at a high level.
2015 outlook: Harrison is hoping to return at some point this year, but most likely, the Rangers are treating whatever they get from him as a bonus. His major-league career is in peril with all the back trouble he's had, so you can probably ignore him on Draft Day.
