|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/23/15) Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison extended his hitting streak to 10 games, as he went 2 for 4 in Saturday's win over the Mets. Harrison knocked a two-run double in the fourth inning off Matt Harvey, giving the Pirates a 7-1 lead. The two-bagger was his 11th of the season.
Harrison, who also stole his second base of the season, is 21 for 43 during his hitting streak with two home runs, five doubles and seven RBI. His average has gone up from .177 to .261 thanks to his hot hitting.
Pirates insert Josh Harrison in RF for Gregory Polanco
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/20/15) Pirates right fielder Gregory Polanco was not included in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Minnesota.
Polanco will take a seat after an 0-for-5 performance the previous night. He also stranded five baserunners in that game. Polanco is hitting .177 (11 for 62) with four RBI over his last 17 games. Manager Clint Hurdle moved Josh Harrison to right field with Jung Ho Kang at third on Wednesday.
Pittsburgh is favored (-150) at home against Minnesota, per VegasInsider.com.

|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison went 3 for 4 and drove in a run in Tuesday's loss to Minnesota.
Harrison improved his average to .245 and drove in his 11th run of the season. Harrison also doubled--his tenth of the year.
Streaking 3B Josh Harrison a key for Pirates
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(5/17/15) Third baseman Josh Harrison has finally begun to come out of his early season funk, with another hit on Sunday extending his hitting streak to six games.
Over that run, Harrison is hitting 12-for-25 (.480), raising his average from .173 to .230, and the Pirates have been playing much better baseball.
"We all want to continue to get better," Harrison told MLB.com. "At the end of the day, barreling up balls is all you can control."
Pirates' Josh Harrison has huge day in 12-inning loss
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison went 4 for 6 and scored three times in Friday's 12-inning loss to the Cubs.
Harrison doubled twice and hit a solo home run. He's now hitting .222 with eight doubles, four homers and 10 RBI.
|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.
