2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

If only every major leaguer played with the passion and reckless abandon Harrison exhibits, baseball would be the better for it. From a fantasy perspective, however, he's little more than a waiver-wire option. Harrison hit .233/.279/.345 in 249 at-bats last year after batting a punchless .272 as a rookie. As a right-handed batter, PNC Park's dimensions don't play well for whatever power he does have. He'll qualify in many leagues at both second base (28 games) and shortstop (25), but there's simply not enough oomph in his bat for fantasy owners.

2012

Harrison's lack of fear served him well in 2011. The Pirates recalled him with little fanfare at the beginning of June and he responded with an impressive 88 percent contact rate, a number in stark contrast to Pedro Alvarez's 66 percent. From a fantasy perspective, the infielder offers little more than a decent batting average -- he has a career .306 minor league mark and hit .272 with Pittsburgh (in 195 at-bats). He lacks power and is blocked by Neil Walker at second base, making Harrison little more than a bat off the bench. The Pirates figure to use him in a reserve role with an opportunity to fill in due to injury.
