Latest Update Josh Harrison stays hot versus Cardinals Fri Jul, 11, 07:59 AM
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 been the talk of the town following his somewhat questionable All-Star selection, but the guy keeps finding ways to produce no matter where he is put on the field. His production has slipped slightly of late, however he is still slashing .297/.335/.452 with five home runs, 27 RBI and nine stolen bases plus if you add his multiple-position eligibility into the mix, you have yourself a solid fantasy option in deep league formats.

Something Harrison owners should get used to now that everyone is healthy. Pedro Alvarez is at third Neil Walker is at second and the outfield configuration.shouldn't change at all either. His time was well-spent, but it's time to say goodbye.Analyst: Howard Bender
Those who own Harrison should probably get used to this now as the Pirates lineup Thursday is probably going to be their most commonly used lineup moving forward. Maybe Harrison will get in there and spell one of the regulars here and there, but without an injury, his days of regular playing time are just about over.Analyst: Howard Bender
Well, unlike in St. Louis where their top prospect Oscar Taveras did not deliver when he got the call up making the Cards' decision an easy one when Matt Adams returned from the DL. The same has not been the case for the Pirates as all their rookie, Gregory Polanco, did was hit, and hit some more, eventually breaking Roberto Clemente's franchise record for most consecutive games with a hit to start one's career. And while Polanco has gotten the majority of the attention lately, Starling Marte has performed as well if not better than the rookie so it is likely Harrison will have to wait and hope one of them goes into a slump and/or gets hurt before he will see enough playing time to be fantasy worthy again.
