|Matt Harrison suffers setback, undergoes surgery|
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/1/13) Rangers starting pitcher Matt Harrison suffered a setback in recovery from back surgery and required further surgery Wednesday morning, according to multiple reports. A smaller heriation of the repaired herniated disc was discovered after an MRI.
Manager Jon Daniels said that the setback isn't uncommon and would not set a timetable for Harrison's return.
|Matt Harrison already feeling better|

(4/23/13) Rangers starter Matt Harrison underwent successful surgery to fix a herniated disc Tuesday and said he felt better as soon as he awoke, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Harrison experienced normal soreness following the operation, but the pain in his legs due to the irritated nerve was gone. The Rangers believe he'll be out until after the All-Star break.
"The surgery went as expected," general manager Jon Daniels said. "No surprises."
|Matt Harrison out until after All-Star break|

(4/19/13) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison is scheduled to undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a herniated disc in his back and will likely be sidelined until after the All-Star break, ESPN.com reports. Harrison has been plagued by a lower back issue for most of the season and landed on the disabled list April 10 after just two starts.
The left-hander was tagged for five runs in each of his outings and failed to complete at least six innings in either start. Justin Grimm is expected to keep his spot in the rotation during Harrison's absence.
|Matt Harrison gets second injection|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(4/14/13) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison underwent a second injection Saturday to relieve the inflammation in his back, MLB.com reports. Harrison, on the disabled list, still has not resumed throwing.
Eligible to come off the DL April 22, Harrison will likely need more time.
|Matt Harrison receives injection for ailing back|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/10/13) Rangers starting pitcher Matt Harrison, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday, said he received an injection Sunday into his ailing back, according to FOX Sports Southwest. He said he has felt better the last two days and hopes for just a 15-day stint on the DL, but he isn't sure how long he will be out.
|Matt Harrison continued to impress in 2012, setting career-bests in wins (18), ERA (3.29), strikeouts (133), innings pitched (213 1/2), complete games (four) and WHIP (1.26). Essentially, any pitching category that might matter in Fantasy, Harrison improved upon from his solid 2011. Harrison was really haunted by just one month all season -- May -- in which he delivered a 5.15 ERA and 1.39 WHIP. But he followed that up with a 1.29 ERA in June and coasted the rest of the season. Harrison won't help much with strikeouts, but he still finished 22nd in points leagues among starting pitchers. It's safe to think Harrison will keep his ERA around the 3.30 level in 2013, but his lack of strikeouts hurts him in Roto leagues. He should be off the board by the early middle rounds in points leagues, and on the later end for Roto. (Updated 11/30/12)|
