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.
Pirates' Harrison sits Tuesday as HR drought reaches 37 games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(6/30/15) Pirates infielder Josh Harrison was held out of the starting lineup Tuesday against the Tigers for the first time since June 10. It was just the ninth time in 76 games this season he did not start.
Harrison is batting .346 (28 for 81) with four doubles, four RBI, six runs, three walks, 12 strikeouts and three stolen bases in his last 19 games.
He still hasn't homered in 37 games, which is the third-longest drought of his career, according to Baseball-Reference.com. His longest home-run drought was 46 games.
Neil Walker out of Pirates' lineup, Jung Ho Kang gets start
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(6/28/15) Pirates second baseman Neil Walker is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game. Walker has started 62 games, including the last five.
To replace Walker, the Pirates will shift Josh Harrison to second from third base. Harrison has previously started at second 11 times this year.
Replacing Josh Harrison at third is Jung Ho Kang, who gets his 27th start at the hot corner.
Pirates 3B Josh Harrison heating up, but power numbers down
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/22/15) Those who predicted that versatile Pirates leadoff hitter Josh Harrison could not duplicate his 2014 production felt justified most of the season. But not so much anymore.
Harrison has been on fire since early June. He has hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games and is batting .400 (22-for-55) over his last 13.
The dropoff from a year ago is most evident in his power numbers. His .392 slugging percentage has actually fallen since mid-May and is nearly 100 points down from last year. He had seven triples and 13 home runs in 2014 compared to zero triples and four blasts this season.
Pirates 2B Josh Harrison goes 4 for 4 from the plate
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/15/15) Pirates second baseman Josh Harrison was perfect from the plate in Monday night's 11-0 victory over the White Sox.
Harrison went 4 for 4 and drew a walk, reaching base five times. He also stole two bases, upping his total to seven for the season. All four of Harrison's hits went for singles and he notched one RBI.
Harrison is now hitting .349 over his past 10 games. For the season, he holds a slash line of .284/.321/.405.
|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.
