Pirates' Josh Harrison begins to heat up vs. Brewers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/20/15) Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison entered last weekend's series against the Brewers with just six hits in 31 at-bats but went 4 for 12 with one RBI in the Pirates' three-game sweep of their division rivals.
Harrison has had trouble creating a spark from the leadoff spot over the first two weeks of the season but began to show signs of turning things around against Milwaukee this weekend. He's performed well leading off the first inning for the Pirates, going 3 for 11 with one home run, but has failed to find the same success later in the game. Harrison and the Pirates will open a four-game home series against the Cubs Monday.

Pirates sign Josh Harrison to four-year, $27.3M contract extension
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison signed a contract extension through the 2018 season, the team announced Wednesday. There are also teams options for 2019 and 2020.
Harrison's deal is worth $27.3 million, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. His deal could reach $50.3 million, if the Pirates exercise both options.
“We are pleased to make this commitment to Josh and that Josh has made this commitment to the Pirates,” general manager Neal Huntington said in a press release. “Josh is a very talented, well-rounded player who helps our team win games offensively, defensively and on the bases. Additionally, he is an outstanding person who leads by example with his energy, grit and positivity. We look forward to continuing to work with Josh to achieve our shared goals.”
Harrison is coming off a breakout season in 2014. He hit .315 with a .490 slugging percentage, .837 OPS, seven triples, 13 home runs, 38 doubles, 52 RBI, 77 runs and 18 stolen bases in 143 games. Harrison was a first-time All-Star last season.
The 27-year-old Harrison has a career .283/.314/.429/.743 slash line over five MLB seasons (373 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.
