6/30/2015 3:49:00 PM

Insight: It was Pittsburgh's second, 1-0, victory in the series sweep over Philadelphia. Harrison recorded his hit with runners on second and third.

5/29/2015 5:59:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is not in the lineup on Friday against the Padres. is hitting .429 in his last 15 games.
Insight: This is a little strange because Harrison is so hot, hitting .429 in his last 15 games, but Clint Hurdle is going to give him a break. The Pirates have Gregory Polanco leading off and playing right field, Neil Walker will bat second and play second base, Jung Ho Kang is starting at third and batting fifth and Jordy Mercer is at shortstop batting eighth. That covers all the position Harrison plays right?
 
5/29/2015 1:36:00 AM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is hitting .429 in his last 15 games.
Insight: Harrison has hits in 14 of those 15 games over the last two and a half weeks. Harrison has just been on fire and it is probably no coincidence that the Pirates, who have won seven straight, are as well. Harrison has raised his average nearly 100 points in the last 15 games and is hitting .266 with four home runs, 17 RBI and 25 runs in 173 at-bats this season.

Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison started a new hitting streak on Tuesday against the Marlins.
Insight: Harrison saw his 11-game hitting streak snapped on Monday, but he went 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and two runs on Tuesday. It is probably no coincidence that Harrison is hitting .414 in the last 16 games, and the Pirates are 10-6 over that span. In the last seven games, Harrison is 12-for-30 (.400) and Pittsburgh is 5-2.
 
5/23/2015 7:06:00 PM

Insight: The first 20,000 fans at PNC Park on Saturday received a Harrison bobblehead, and the third baseman celebrated his day going 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run in the, 8-2, victory over the Mets on Saturday. After nearly losing his job due to a posting a batting average below .180 through April, Harrison is hitting .261 with four home runs and 13 RBI in 153 at-bats.
 
5/15/2015 7:34:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison went 4-for-6 as Pittsburgh scored 10 runs versus the Chicago Cubs on Friday.
Insight: Unfortunately, that wasn't enough as Pittsburgh lost, 11-10, but it is encouraging to see the Pirates offense break out of its shell. Harrison is a big part of the reason the team scored 10 on Friday. He had a single, two doubles and a homer. His bomb started the Pirates four-run rally in the eighth, and they tied the game at 10 in the ninth. Harrison is 9-for-16 with two home runs and four RBI in the last four games.
 
5/12/2015 10:01:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison hit a home run in the, 7-2, victory over the Phillies on Tuesday.
Insight: It was a welcome site as Harrison has really struggled to start the year. He was 1-for-3 Tuesday with the three-run homer, two runs and a stolen base. It is clear that Harrison is not going to hit .315 again this season, but there is still time for him to turn his season around.
 
5/11/2015 3:49:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison will sit out another game on Monday night.
Insight: With Jung Ho Kang hitting, Harrison struggling, he's now missed two of the last three games. Eventually Kang figures to move to short and Harrison back to third base with Jordy Mercer the odd-man out.
 
5/10/2015 12:06:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison will start at second base and leadoff for the Pirates on Sunday versus the Cardinals.
Insight: With Jung Ho Kang hitting so well and Harrison struggling, it is quite possible that Kang becomes the Pirates everyday third baseman while Harrison returns to a super-utility role. Regardless, it's still probably too early to give up on Harrison. There are a lot of factors that could be leading to this really bad slump, so if possible, store him on the bench.
 
5/9/2015 6:06:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is not in the lineup on Saturday versus the Cardinals.
Insight: Harrison is quickly finding himself in a platoon situation with Jung Ho Kang at third base. Both players are right-handed, so there currently isn't any rhyme or reason as to who starts what days. Harrison is batting just .178/.214/.290 this season.
 
5/5/2015 4:58:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is not in the lineup on Tuesday versus the Reds.
Insight: Harrison is off to a sluggish start, hitting .188 this season. Jung Ho Kang, who hit a solo home run on Sunday, will get the start at third base.
 
4/29/2015 5:30:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison will not be in the starting lineup on Wednesday against the Cubs.
Insight: Jung Ho Kang will start at third base. It's a day of rest for Harrison, who is hitting just .213/.250/.363 through 20 games this season.
 
4/13/2015 4:26:00 PM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison smacked his first homer of the season.
Insight: He lead off the bottom of the first with the dinger, and it was also Harrison's first RBI of the campaign as well. He has a .217/.333/.391 early on this season. That should improve quickly.
 
3/5/2015 9:42:00 AM
Description: Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison rolled his left ankle Wednesday, but it doesn't appear too serious.
Insight: Harrison can play multiple positions, but should be the primary 3B this season as Pedro Alvarez has been moved to 1B. Harrison was a huge ssurprise last season batting .315 with, 52 RBI, 77 runs and 18 stolen bases and an .839 OPS. He'll go much higher in this year's drafts.
