Latest Update Josh Harrison went 2-for-4 and belted his 13th home run of the year against Johnny Cueto but the Pirates fell to the Reds 3-2 on Sunday. Sun Aug, 31, 05:04 PM
Possesses plenty of position versatility, both as an outfielder and infielder, and base-stealing speed. Can hit for average and be used as a table-setter (or pinch-hitter).
Flaws: : He's a little on the smallish side, so he doesn't generate a lot of home-run power. Isn't great at any one position, so he's not a great option to be used every day.
Harrison has become one of the more reliable fantasy plays due to his consistent, and excellent performance. Harrison owners are happy that due to injuries and a dismal showing by Pedro Alvarez, Harrison has become an everyday player who is thriving. With a .308 clip and multi-positional eligibility, Harrison can continue to be trusted in your line up.Analyst: Colby Conway
Harrison will certainly be in the discussion for the most surprising fantasy season this year. He is hitting .308 with 62 runs, 12 home runs, 45 RBI and 17 stolen bases in 118 games.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Um. It's almost September. Anyone who dismisses him and says he's going to slow down obviously hasn't been watching him close enough. Could he falter a little? Of course. Anyone can. But the Pirates are so confident that they bumped Pedro Alvarez to first base platoon status to clear the path for Harrison to remain an everyday player. Enjoy.Analyst: Howard Bender
Harrison continues to be a spark in the Pirates offense in 2014, and is now hitting .520 with five extra-base hits (1 HR), one RBI, eight runs scored and two stolen bases over his last six games, which is a span that includes four multi-hit performances. He has settled in nicely atop the Pirates lineup and as long as he can maintain his .351 on-base percentage, he will be a solid contributor in both runs scored and stolen bases at the very least as the season progresses.
