Josh Harrison < 500

Josh Harrison is why we watch sports. In June of 2013, I saw him playing in a Triple-A game in Durham. He played well enough that I came back from the game thinking to myself, “Yeah, I think he’s probably ready to take Brandon Inge’s spot as a utility player.” In early July of 2014, he was a Swiss-Army knife All-Star. The selection was objectively a bit undeserved because...

Player Profile #109: Josh Harrison | 2B/3B/OF | PIT

At this time last year, FanGraphs was unrolling 2014 ZiPS projections, and Josh Harrison’s name was hard to find. A little Ctrl+F action shows no mention of him in that write-up previewing the 2014 Pirates, and the only place his name does appear is next to a yawn-inducing .264/.302/.399 slash line. By wOBA, Harrison’s projected .302 was behind notable sluggers Jose Tabata...

Watch: Josh Harrison turns spectacular double play

There’s turning the conventional 5-4-3 double play and then there’s what Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison seems to do on a daily basis.

WATCH: Josh Harrison beats rundown with crazy baserunning

Here is a GIF of the botched rundown/blown call by the umpires #Mets — #ImWithTowels (@MetsKevin11) June 28, 2014 Pirates outfielder Josh Harrison is one hell of a baserunner. On Friday’s game between the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets, Harrison displayed one of the most amazing base running plays you’ll ever see. In the 10th inning of a tie game...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Why Josh Harrison has been the biggest surprise

Josh Harrison Right field wasn’t exactly a power position for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Both Jose Tabata and Travis Snider were struggling, but then Josh Harrison worked his way into the starting role. The Cincinnati native has often been ridiculed by fans. Many questioned why he was even on the roster and thought he would never be anything more than a minor league baseball player...
