Pirates' Josh Harrison: Will play in WBC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison will join Team USA for the World Baseball Classic, replacing the injured Matt Carpenter (back), Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports.

Harrison has certainly earned the honor, emerging as one of the best utility players in the National League. The 29-year-old contributed a career-high 59 RBI and 19 stolen bases last season while batting .283 over 131 games. Harrison spent the offseason rehabbing from a groin injury, but it appears he's back to full strength and ready to showcase his skills on the international stage.

Pirates' Josh Harrison: Ready to move around diamond
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates could use Harrison as a utility player if Jung-Ho Kang (personal) is forced to miss time, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "I do think there is a buy-in (to move) that's real with him," manager Clint Hurdle said. "I do think his versatility can help him."

Harrison had his career season in 2014 when he moved around the infield and outfield. Perhaps more importantly, he says he's recovered from a torn thumb ligament. Harrison underwent surgery in July of 2015 and never fully recovered in 2016. "If it was cold or if I didn't hit a ball right, just rolling over that joint sometimes would be painful enough to where I would know that it was still there," Harrison said. He followed a normal offseason program this past winter. "I was able to get after it like I wanted to, without any reservations," Harrison said. The 28-year-old hit .283 with a career-high 19 stolen bases last year but compiled a woeful .699 OPS.

Pirates' Josh Harrison: In normal offseason program
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Harrison (groin) is undergoing his normal offseason conditioning program, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Harrison injured his groin on Sept. 11 and did not appear in another game for the Pirates. He has progressed well and will be fully healthy for the start of spring training. It's not a guarantee that he will open the season with Pittsburgh, as it's been rumored that the team is open to trading the second baseman, whose offensive production has tapered off since his breakout 2014 campaign.

Pirates' Josh Harrison: Placed on 60-day DL Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Harrison (groin) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Monday.

The Pirates needed to clear a spot on the 40-man roster after trading for minor league infielder Chris Bostick, and considering Harrison was already ruled out for the season, he was the clear choice to send off. He'll return to the active roster sometime over the offseason and will likely be back in a starting role for Pittsburgh heading into next season.

Pirates' Josh Harrison: Likely done for season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Harrison has been diagnosed with a right groin strain and is expected to be out 4-to-6 weeks, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Harrison should be recovered from his setback at some point in October, but with the Pirates fading fast in the playoff hunt, he's likely done for the season. Adam Frazier and Sean Rodriguez are favorites to see increased action at second base the rest of the way.
