Pirates' Josh Harrison likely to lead off, unconcerned with lineup
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates third baseman Josh Harrison is likely to serve as the team's leadoff hitter this season but said Thursday he's unconcerned with how the lineup is put together, MLB.com reports.

"To be honest, I don't really pay attention to the lineup," said Harrison, who led off Thursday with a homer. "The lineup gets jumbled so much and we don't pay attention too much to what could be the Opening Day lineup and what could not. ... That's more [the media's] job, to look at the lineup and say maybe Opening Day, but none of us here have said, 'This may be our Opening Day lineup.' At the end of the day, we've got to worry about the task at hand and that's getting better every day."

Harrison hit .328/.359/.535 atop the lineup last season and started 83 games as the leadoff hitter.

"Your approach changes at-bat to at-bat," Harrison said. "My leadoff approach changes day to day as well. They attacked me differently throughout the course of last year. The last month and a half, guys started mixing it up on me early. My approach is to go out there and get a good pitch to hit -- so in the grand scheme of things, my approach really doesn't change."

Pirates' Josh Harrison looking to build off last season's success
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Pirates utility man Josh Harrison did it all for the team last season. Harrison played five different positions in a career-high 143 games for the Pirates. He and the coaching staff want to see him build off the success in 2014, reports the TribLive.com.

"Josh is mentally tough," Hurdle said. "He's disciplined and he's committed. So I don't foresee any of those challenges, as far as him (thinking) he's arrived and he's made it. This kid's hungry. He's worked hard and he believes he's only scratched the surface."

Harrison continues to have the same mindset he had before the best season of his career.

"My role has changed a little bit, but I don't attack the day any different than I did when I wasn't playing every day," Harrison said. "That's how I'm programmed. I keep things in perspective. Whether I'm the number one man or the 25th man (on the roster), I carry my business the same way."

Now, Harrison will be the full-time third baseman, which makes it possible for him to focus better.

"It's a little easier mentally because I can just focus on one position and get the extra work I need there," Harrison said. "I'm not rushed anymore. It's definitely a nice switch."

Pirates' Josh Harrison (ankle) returns to lineup Monday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Pirates infielder Josh Harrison (ankle) is in the starting lineup for Monday's spring game against the Twins.

Harrison left Wednesday's game due to left ankle discomfort but expressed little concern with the issue one day later. He also dealt with issues with the same ankle last season.

Harrison is looking for a strong follow-up to his breakout 2014 season in which he hit .315/.347/.490 with 13 home runs, 52 RBI and 18 stolen bases in 520 at-bats.

Pirates' Josh Harrison not too concerned about ankle injury
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Pirates outfielder Josh Harrison doesn't seem too concerned after rolling his left ankle during Wednesday's spring game against the Blue Jays.

"I wouldn't even say I completely turned it. I kinda caught myself when I felt something," Harrison said Thursday, per MLB.com. "The trainers spotted me pulling up and right away said, 'Let's just be cautious,' so I came out."

Harrison had issues with his left ankle in 2014 after twisting it June 11. He had recurrences later in June and in early September, but he did not miss significant time.

"And this wasn't anything like last [year's ankle injury]," Harrison said. "I know how it felt then, and this time it was a lot less [painful]."
