      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Hits two-RBI pinch-hit double Thursday

      Harrison (illness) came off the bench and hit a two-RBI pinch-hit double Thursday against the Diamondbacks. Harrison was held out of Wednesday' and Thursday's starting lineup due to an illness, but he seemed to be just fine as he blasted an opposite-field double off of the Diamondbacks' Jake Barrett. He'll likely reclaim his place in the starting lineup Friday as long as no complications arise with his health.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Out Wednesday with illness

      Harrison is dealing with an illness, which is why he was scratched from Wednesday's lineup. Sean Rodriguez was inserted into the six hole and will start at second base in Harrison's stead. Harrison has proved his doubters wrong so far this season, as he is batting a robust .314 with two home runs and seven steals through 171 plate appearances.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Scratched from Wednesday's lineup

      Harrison was scratched from Wednesday's lineup. Harrison was initially slated to bat sixth and play second base against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, but something caused manager Clint Hurdle to remove the 28-year-old from the starting lineup in favor of Sean Rodriguez. It's unclear if the scratch is injury-related or not, but that should become clearer following the conclusion of the game.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Reaches base three times Tuesday

      Harrison went 2-for-3 with a walk and two runs scored before being relieved by Sean Rodriguez in the eighth inning due to the blowout nature of Tuesday's 12-1 win over the Diamondbacks. Even with the slightly early exit, Harrison managed to reach base three times. The 28-year-old now has four hits and three runs scored over the last two games, and has hit safely in eight of his last nine. He's one of many Pirates swinging a hot bat at the moment.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Two-hit game Monday

      Harrison went 2-for-4 with two RBI, a stolen base, and a run scored in the Pirates' win over the Rockies on Monday afternoon. While the .490 slugging percentage he posted during a 2014 breakout has been unrepeatable in the two seasons since, Harrison is positioned to eclipse 20 stolen bases for the first time as a big leaguer as he's now 7-for-8 on the basepaths this season. The two-hit effort Monday pushed his season line to a steady .308/.337/.410 mark through 42 games.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Goes 2-for-4 with RBI, run in win

      Harrison went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 12-9 win over the Braves. With the Pirates letting go of Pedro Alvarez and Neil Walker in the offseason, Harrison's path to regular playing time has been much easier in 2016, and the utility man has taken full advantage. He's batting .309 to go with two homers in 139 at-bats, and is a perfect 6-for-6 on steal attempts.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Comes up big Wednesday

      Harrison hit a game-tying homer off Tony Cingrani in the eighth inning of Wednesday's 5-4 win. His services on a scheduled day off were required when Starling Marte was ejected in the sixth inning. Harrison's batting average (.314) and on-base percentage (.341) are nearly identical to his stellar season of 2014, but his slugging percentage (.430) is well below the mark he put up two years ago (.490). He's played in all but one of Pittsburgh's first 33 tilts, but the team will likely begin watching his time more closely, given that he's never played in more than 143 contests in a single season.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Out of lineup Tuesday

      Harrison is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs. After starting the last four games and seeing a bump up to third in the order, it looks to be just a normal day off for Harrison with the Pirates set to face Jake Arrieta. Sean Rodriguez will man the keystone in his stead Tuesday.

      Pirates' Josh Harrison: Moves up to third in lineup Sunday

      Harrison is moving up to third in the order for Sunday's game against the Reds. David Freese's absence from the lineup Sunday allows Harrison to take his spot as the number three hitter. He's slashing .368/.409/.579 over the last week and .404/.423/.596 over the past two weeks overall. Harrison and the Pirates will be facing righty Tim Adleman.
