RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
After a strong year in the Arizona League, Harrison struggled in his first season with Low-A Wisconsin. His .246 OBP and .247 SLG even prompted a demotion to rookie-level Helena. He was able to tear up the Pioneer League to the tune of a .884 OPS, but unfortunately Harrison had to call it a season after breaking his ankle in July. While a leg injury to a speed threat is never a good thing, the 20-year-old should be fully recovered by spring training and ready to go for 2016. If he can build off of his rookie-level numbers, Harrison can still regain his top-prospect status. Most likely, he will begin that effort with a return to the Midwest League at Low-A Wisconsin in April.
The Brewers selected Harrison despite a strong commitment to play football collegiately at Nebraska, but they ended up convincing him to play baseball instead, and may have gotten a steal with the 50th pick of the draft. In 50 games with the Brewers’ Rookie League team in Arizona, Harrison posted an impressive .402 OBP, and was an ultra-efficient 32-of-34 on stolen base attempts. He is a few years away from being an option for the Brewers, but he is on his way to playing center field for them at some point down the road.
