Description: Pittsburgh utilityman Josh Harrison homered for the fourth straight game on Wednesday at San Francisco.
Insight: Prior to July 27, Harrison hadn't homered in his past 29 games (22 starts) and he had just five home runs all season. He's now hitting .297 with nine home runs, 37 RBI, 42 runs and 13 steals, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to suddenly become a power hitter.

Description: Pittsburgh utilityman Josh Harrison went 4-for-6 with a double and a homer Sunday at Colorado.
Insight: Harrison was a questionable choice for the NL All-Star team, but there's no denying he's been a valuable utility player for Pittsburgh this season, filling in at second, third and both corner outfield spots. He's picked up 282 at-bats and hit .294 with six home runs, 33 RBI, 38 runs and 13 steals.

Insight: Harrison (.317, 4 HR, 18 RBI, 23 runs) has been a catalyst for the Pirates offense, but isn't likely to help in this unfavorable matchup.

Description: Pittsburgh utility man Josh Harrison cranked four hits in Tuesday night's loss to Cincinnati.
Insight: Harrison (.319, 4 HR, 18 RBI) has gone 9-for-14 with three RBI over his last three games. As long as he keeps hitting, the Pirates will continue to find ways to get him in the lineup.

9/27/2012 11:47:00 AM
Description: Pirates infielder Josh Harrison should be in for a big fantasy day Thursday against the Mets. Harrison is a .600 hitter in 10 career at bats versus New York starter R.A. Dickey.
Insight: The knuckle ball hasn't seemed to phase Harrison, who has been playing a lot of second base lately due to Neil Walker's back injury. Harrison doesn't have a ton of upside usually but today seems like a safe day to start the 25-year-old.
