|Matt Harrison's next start to come in the majors |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(4/20/14) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison will likely make his next start in the majors, according to MLB Network Radio.
Harrison has progressed during rehab, throwing eight shutout inning during his last start. General manger Jon Daniels said three of the team's scouts said Harrison's stuff was back to normal. It's unclear when Harrison will make his season debut.

(4/19/14) Rangers starting pitcher Matt Harrison looked like he was in mid-season form Saturday night, tossing eight strong innings in a rehab start with Double-A Frisco. He allowed just three hits and one walk while striking out five in eight shutout innings for the RoughRiders.
Harrison is working his way back from a back injury and appears to be close to rejoining the big-league club.
Before Saturday's gem, general manager Jon Daniels felt that Harrison needed more time in the minors before his reinstatement. It remains to be seen if his three-hit, eight-inning effort changed Daniels' mind. Harrison believes he's ready to return, per ESPN Dallas.
"My head is in the right place and I know why I was struggling before and I got that straightened out," Harrison said. "It wasn't anything mechanical. My mentality out there tonight, I know I can replicate that. I don't know what their plan is, but I'll find out tomorrow, I think."

(4/17/14) Rangers starting pitcher Matt Harrison (back) is hopeful to make his return from the 15-day disabled list after his next rehab start Saturday for Double-A Frisco. Harrison is expected to throw 95 pitches Saturday.
"I have to get more than 3 1/3 innings," Harrison said. "I know I'm close."
However, general manager Jon Daniels seems to think Harrison is going to need more time on his rehab assignment.
"There's not a set deadline," Daniels said. "I'm expecting him to make two more starts."
|Report: Matt Harrison rehab stint could be lengthened |

(4/17/14) Rangers starter Matt Harrison, who has not pitched since making two starts to begin the 2013 season, might be forced to wait a bit longer to return from a rehab assignment after back surgery.
General manager Jon Daniels has not committed to Harrison rejoining the Rangers rotation late next week, which indicates that the left-hander could be forced to make two or three more minor league starts, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
|Matt Harrison throws 77 pitches in rehab start |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(4/14/14) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison threw 77 pitches in 3 1/3 innings in a rehab start with Double-A Frisco Monday, giving up three earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two.
Harrison was regularly scheduled to make his start Sunday, but rain delayed his outing by a day. He's on the way back from back surgery. Harrison is hoping to make it back to the Rangers by the end of the month.
|Matt Harrison's 18 wins, 3.29 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 5.6 strikeouts per nine innings in 2012 earned him a long-term deal with the Rangers. They're still waiting to get some sort of return out of it. The 28-year-old lefty made all of two starts in 2013. They were ugly, but for good reason. Harrison revealed he was pitching with back soreness, which turned out to be a herniated disc, which was costing him strength in his left leg. He had surgery on April 23 and again on May 1, and then when he tried to ramp up to return after the All-Star break, he ended up needing another surgery to correct his thoracic outlet syndrome. The Rangers are hoping an offseason of rest did Harrison a world of good, if only by ensuring he doesn't try to come back to soon, and have penciled him into their starting rotation to begin 2014. Though his lack of strikeout potential has always limited his Fantasy appeal, he had emerged in his last two healthy seasons as a stable enough innings-eater to pile up wins on an offensive-oriented club. Wins are one of the more unpredictable statistics in baseball, which only adds to the risk with Harrison, but if he looks healthy in spring training, he'll have some low-end mixed-league appeal.
