Pirates' Josh Harrison taking ground balls
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/26/15) Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is performing baseball activities again as he recovers from thumb surgery.
Harrison had a procedure in mid-July to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb.
He fielded ground balls before Sunday's game, with a protective glove covering the thumb, per the Pittsburgh Tribune.

|(7/12/15) The Pirates have discussed potential trades with the Phillies surrounding outfielders Jeff Francouer and Ben Revere, according to a report by the Pittsburgh Tribune.
The Pirates need someone to fill in at the leadoff spot, with Josh Harrison on the disabled list and are hoping Revere will be able to fill the role.
Pirates' Josh Harrison staying positive following thumb surgery
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/11/15) Josh Harrison is one of the more energetic players in the game right now. And now, the Pirates utility man is using that energy to keep a positive outlook on his recent thumb injury.
Harrison underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb, and he will miss about seven weeks. But the ever-delightful Harrison is staying upbeat despite his current scenario.
"I always look at it as, it could have been worse," said Harrison, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I put things in perspective to know that people out there have it worse than me. There are some guys that have had Tommy John [surgery] that are out a year and a half. There’s really no need for me to get bent out of shape when I have an opportunity to come back this year and help make a playoff push."
Doctor confirms diagnosis on Pirates 3B Josh Harrison
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/8/15) Shelved Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison has had his original diagnosis of a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb confirmed by Dr. Thomas Graham, per WPXI. He is expected to be sidelined for seven weeks.
Harrison sustained the injury Sunday on a slide into second base.
Pirates 3B Josh Harrison out six weeks due to thumb injury
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/6/15) When the Pirates posted their lineup card Monday against the Padres, starting third baseman Josh Harrison was noticeably absent. It was later revealed Harrison was placed on the 15-day disabled list and be sidelined six weeks due to torn thumb ligaments.
Harrison injured his left thumb Sunday on a slide into second base in the seventh inning. The Pirates announced he will undergo a second opinion later in the week.
Jung Ho Kang, who replaced Harrison in the starting lineup Monday, will likely see the bulk of playing time at third base in Harrison's absence. They are the only two players to start at third base this season for Pittsburgh.
Harrison heads to the DL having hit safely in five straight games. Since June 7, he is batting .333 in his last 25 games. Unfortunately, he hasn't homered in his last 43 games.
|2014 summary: Josh Harrison might win the award for most surprising player of 2014, beginning the year as that guy who gets called up to occupy the last spot on the bench every time a starter goes down and ending it as a legitimate MVP candidate. He just wouldn't stop |
hitting, actually improving his .297 batting average from the first half with a .332 mark in the second half. Even though he didn't become an everyday player until May 18, he finished ninth among third basemen in Head-to-Head points leagues and sixth in Rotisserie.
Playing time status: Of course, to list where Harrison ranked at every position he played would be far too cumbersome. By season's end, he was quadruple eligible. He's down to third base and outfield now and is expected to play primarily third base in 2015 for the Pirates. Even if he regresses some, his versatility should ensure he gets his at-bats.
2015 outlook: So will he regress? A pure evaluation of BABIP says he will, but of course, not all BABIPs are so pure. Harrison hits an especially high number of line drives and has a penchant for spraying the ball to all fields. As a so-so power hitter who continually puts the ball in play, he's probably predisposed to a high BABIP anyway. You shouldn't expect him to win a batting title, but a .290ish batting average is likely -- and with just enough power and speed to make him a worthy starter at third base.
