Pirates optioned INF Josh Harrison to Triple-A Indianapolis.

He's being sent out in order to make room for Sunday's starter, Phil Irwin. Harrison received just one start in his two weeks on the roster.
Sun, Apr 14, 2013 10:07:00 AM

Josh Harrison went 4-for-6 with two runs scored Sunday against the Astros.

Harrison raised his average from .231 to .243 in his first start in 11 days. He got pretty regular time back in May and again for a little spell in August, but as difficult of a time as he's had getting on base, he shouldn't be penciled in for a spot on next year's bench.

Josh Harrison doubled off Francisco Liriano in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Twins.

Harrison's first inning two-bagger ended up being the Pirates' only extra-base hit in 34 trips to the plate. It was his second extra-base hit in as many nights, but Harrison has made just five starts in June. He's off the fantasy radar in all formats.
Wed, Jun 20, 2012 10:30:00 PM

Josh Harrison doubled, tripled and scored a run in Tuesday's loss to the Mets.

Harrison has received an uptick in playing time recently and has a modest eight-game hit streak going, batting .367 over that stretch. With possible multiple-position eligibility, he's probably worth consideration in NL-only leagues.
Tue, May 22, 2012 09:52:00 PM

Josh Harrison has been scratched from Sunday's game after being hit on the elbow by a pitch.

It's just a precautionary move. Harrison wasn't scheduled to start the game, anyway, and he'll probably be ready to play in a day or two. He's competing for an Opening Day bench spot.
Sun, Mar 4, 2012 09:36:00 AM

Josh Harrison tallied four hits to lift the Pirates past the Reds 4-3 Saturday night in Pittsburgh.

Harrison hit a single in the first inning, a triple in the third, a double in the fourth and another single in the sixth. He also collected his fourth stolen base of the season. The 24-year-old could make the Bucs' Opening Day roster next year if he develops more defensive versatility. He's expected to play shortstop in a fall instructional league.
Sat, Sep 24, 2011 10:31:00 PM

The Pirates will have Josh Harrison play shortstop in the Instructional League this fall.

Harrison has played second and third base since making his major-league debut on May 31, and has made zero career appearances at shortstop since being a sixth-round pick in 2008. Batting .265/.276/.359 through his first 190 major league plate appearances and a career .306/.355/.424 minor-league hitter, playing a third position could greatly enhance Harrison's chances of sticking around in the big leagues.

Josh Harrison is expected to continue splitting starts at third base with Pedro Alvarez.

Harrison is out-hitting Alvarez, but the Bucs want to keep both youngsters involved as they begin making roster plans for 2012. It's a situation to avoid in fantasy leagues.
