Harrison is not in the starting lineup Thursday against Milwaukee, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Harrison will get his first maintenance day since the end of the All-Star break as Adam Frazier makes the start at second and bats leadoff. Harrison has collected hits in each of his last four games (4-for-16), three of those going for extra bases.
Harrison (foot) is starting at second base and leading off Friday against the Nationals. He was limited with a foot injury prior to the All-Star break, but apparently the time off was all he needed to get right. Despite the fact that he is leading off, Harrison has a rough matchup Friday against righty Stephen Strasburg.
Harrison (foot) is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. Harrison left Saturday's game after taking a pitch off his foot and will be held out of Sunday's matchup as a precaution. The second basemen is being replaced in the lineup by Sean Rodriguez who's batting fifth in the order. Harrison will look to return to better hitting ways once the second half begins as he's gone 11-for-62 (.177) over his last 18 games.
Harrison left Saturday's game shortly after taking a pitch off his left foot. The second baseman drove in a run with a bases-loaded HBP before leaving due to left foot discomfort. Harrison has a history of ankle problems, but foot issues are something new. We'll likely know the results from X-rays -- and his status for Sunday -- prior to the finale against the Cubs.
Harrison went 2-for-4 with a two-run double Friday in Oakland. Harrison is trying to reverse a troubling trend which has seen his batting average fall from .327 to .284, thanks to a 13-for-73 stretch since June 9. He's driven in four runs the last two games, matching his total for the previous 16 contests.
