2023 Player Outlook
2023 Recap: In the minors, Harrison displayed impressive strikeout numbers, but there were going to be concerns about his command, seeing as he posted a 16.3 percent walk rate in Triple-A before being called up. In seven starts with the Giants, his walk rate came in at 7.5 percent, which is far more palatable. Harrison's peripheral statistics say that his 4.15 ERA from last year should have been higher, but he posted a 1.15 WHIP, and he can get by with his fly ball heavy arsenal at Oracle Park.
2024 Outlook: He likes to use his fastball up in the zone, so fly balls (and likely some home runs) will be a part of his game, but there's a lot to like with his makeup. He's likely not able to handle a full season's workload, and the Giants likely cap him around 130-145 IP, but if Harrison can harness his command, he's an intriguing fantasy option with plenty of upside. He's going to strike out about 25 percent of the batters he faces, and his ERA shouldn't get too much above 4.20, again, if he can control his walk rate. He's going inside the top 300, and even with the Giants managing his innings at some point, he's worth a pick for his upside alone.
