2023 Fantasy Outlook
Harrison isn't a perfect pitching prospect, but he is as good as they come with regards to missing bats. The 21-year-old southpaw struck out 186 in 113 innings across 25 starts between High-A and Double-A, with the bulk of his work coming at Double-A. He has a standard three-pitch mix (fastball/slider/changeup) and can get whiffs on any of his pitches in any count if he executes. Harrison had an 11.2 BB% at Double-A, but he cut down on the walks as the summer went on, and most evaluators expect him to stick as a starting pitcher. He is a flyball pitcher (35.6 GB%, 11 HR allowed at Double-A), so assuming his command and control are never elite, he will likely fail to log ace-level ratios, even if he is one of the game's top strikeout arms. While Harrison is not on the 40-man roster, he is clearly the team's best young pitcher, so a 2023 MLB debut is in the cards if he earns it. Read Past Outlooks

Reassigned to minors camp
PSan Francisco Giants  AAA
March 14, 2023
Harrison was reassigned Tuesday to the minor-league side of Giants camp, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Harrison had been lit up for eight earned runs through 3.2 innings of work this spring in Cactus League play, but he ranks as one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball and could feasibly push to make his MLB debut in late 2023. He is 21 years old and doesn't turn 22 until August.

2022 Fantasy Outlook
Harrison could be a frontline starter if the rest of his development goes smoothly. We shouldn't count on that happening, but his talent and upside were on full display last year. The 20-year-old southpaw struck out 157 over 98.2 innings at Low-A, but his 1.40 WHIP on the year was obviously a red flag. That said, he closed the year on a high note, logging an 0.97 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 61:13 K:BB in 37 innings over his final eight starts. He can already touch 98 mph with his four-seam fastball, and his slider and changeup might be 70-grade offerings in time. Both offspeed pitches got whiffs at over a 40% clip last season. If his late-season control gains hold and he can stay healthy, Harrison should cruise through the minors and may eventually pitch atop the Giants' rotation.
