Pirates' Josh Harrison: Confirmed as starting second baseman
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates GM Neal Huntington recently stated that Josh Harrison will take over starting second baseman duties following the departure of Neil Walker, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Harrison compiled a career year in 2014 (.315/.347/.490 ) as a super utilityman, but fell off last year (.287/.327/.390) when he primarily played third base. The 28-year-old began his pro career as a second baseman in the Cubs organization but has made only 67 of his 333 big-league starts there. Harrison's new-found positional stabilty helps ensure regular playing time but he'll have to field well -- he made 17 errors in 2015 -- to keep his full-time gig. Prospect Alen Hanson looms on the horizon.

Pirates' Josh Harrison emerging from slump ahead of postseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pittsburgh Pirates utility man Josh Harrison went 2 for 3 with a triple and a run scored in Saturday's 3-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds .

Harrison had come in to Saturday's contest in a 3-for-18 funk, so his first three-bagger of the season came at an opportune time. The 28-year-old has posted respectable offensive production in 2015, but his numbers are disappointing when compared to his 2014 campaign, even factoring in his 105 fewer plate appearances. Nevertheless, Harrison figures to be counted on during the Pirates' postseason run, however lengthy it may be.

Pirates' Aramis Ramirez could be on the bench Monday vs. Cards
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Pirates could rest third baseman Aramis Ramirez, who has three hits in 19 career at-bats off starter Lance Lynn, against the Cardinals on Monday.

Manager Clint Hurdle likes to go with matchups and Josh Harrison has seven hits in 19 at-bats against Lynn. Ramirez is battling a sore groin and could come off the bench if necessary.

Pirates 3B Josh Harrison collects three hits in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison went 3 for 6 with an RBI and three runs scored in Wednesday's 13-7 romp over the Rockies. 

Harrison has slotted into a top-two spot in the order in each of the Pirates' last two games, responding with five hits and four runs scored during those contests.

Even with Jung-Ho Kang (knee) out of the picture, Harrison will still have to fight for at-bats with Neil Walker at second base and Aramis Ramirez at third base heading into the season's final week. Harrison will surely help his cause if he's able to parlay his recent success over to the next few contests.

Injuries will give Pirates 3B Josh Harrison more playing time
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison figures to see continued steady playing time with the season-ending injury to Jung-Ho Kang.

Harrison, who has already started six of Pittsburgh's last seven games, is batting .345/.406/.448 over that span. He'll still have to battle Aramis Ramirez for playing time at third base, but with Kang gone there will be more opportunity for Harrison at third base when Ramirez shifts to first. Harrison's OPS has drop from .837 in 2014 to just .681 in 2015, but he's seeing the ball better than he has all season long right now.
