Report: Harrison dealt to Phillies as part of Hamels swap
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(12:09 am ET) 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.

|(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.

|(7/22/15) Rangers pitcher Matt Harrison earned his first win of the season in his second start, Tuesday against Colorado.

Rangers SP Matt Harrison rocked in 2015 debut
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/9/15) It was nice for Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison to return to the mound Wednesday for the first time since May 2014.
A better performance against Arizona would have made it much nicer.
Harrison allowed six runs on six hits in four innings to take the defeat. He walked three and fanned one.
A terrible second inning set the stage. He surrendered five runs on singles by Cliff Pennington and Nick Ahmed and three-run homer to A.J. Pollock.
Harrison settled down thereafter. A single by Pollock, who eventually scored, chased him from the game.
Rangers' Matt Harrison off DL on Saturday; will start Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/4/15) Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison has been reinstated from the disabled list on Saturday. Harrison is set to make his season debut and start on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.
Harrison hasn't thrown a big-league pitch since May of 2014, as he has been recovering from back injury that cost him most of last season.
Yovani Gallardo will pitch on Tuesday to open the series against the D-Backs, with Harrison going on Wednesday. Then, the Rangers are expected to go with Wandy Rodriguez, Colby Lewis and Gallardo to complete the first-half of the season against the Padres, according to the Dallas Morning News.
|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.
