Matt Harrison ready to return to Rangers this week
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/28/15) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison threw his second bullpen session of the week, clearning another hurdle for his return to the team.
Harrison is on the 60-day disabled list with a back injury. He'll make the final start of his 30-day minor league rehab assignment on Wednesday and then should be ready to return to the Rangers at the end of the week.
Manager Jeff Bannister said that in order to return to the Rangers after the rehab start, Harrison needed to, "just come out of it healthy," per the Dallas Morning News.

Rangers SP Matt Harrison happy with second rehab outing
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/9/15) Compared to his first rehab start for Triple-A Round Rock, statistically Rangers starting pitcher Matt Harrison (back) did not have a strong outing Tuesday. He allowed six runs on eight hits and two walks in five innings.
However, despite the rough line, Harrison seemed to be pleased with his performance.
"I feel like this is the best stuff I've had come out of my hand since I've been getting off the mound in these games," Harrison said, per MLB.com. "I've just been having a little bit of timing issues with the mechanics. I tried something different between my last start, get my legs more involved on the delivery and the ball is definitely coming out better."
|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.
