      Phillies' Matt Harrison: Unlikely to pitch anytime soon

      Harrison (back) is not expected to be ready for spring training and it is unlikely he will pitch anytime soon, the Phillies' official site reports. Harrison, who came over to the Phillies as a salary dump in the Cole Hamels trade, made just three starts last season before returning to the disabled list with a type of lower-back inflammation called hyperthyroidism. Even if he can return at some point this year, his chances for success are diminished due to his declining velocity.

      Rangers SP Matt Harrison rocked in 2015 debut

      It was nice for Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison to return to the mound Wednesday for the first time since May 2014. A better performance against Arizona would have made it much nicer. Harrison allowed six runs on six hits in four innings to take the defeat. He walked three and fanned one. A terrible second inning set the stage. He surrendered five runs on singles by Cliff Pennington and Nick Ahmed and three-run homer to A.J. Pollock. Harrison settled down thereafter. A single by Pollock, who eventually scored, chased him from the game.
