Harris left Tuesday's game after feeling groin discomfort, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Smith downplayed the ailment and said that his removal was strictly precautionary. This marked the first Grapefruit League game that Harris had appeared in, so it would appear that Harris is simply getting back into the swing of live pitching. However, because Harris is one of the most frequently used pitchers in Houston's bullpen, it will be worth monitoring his status to ensure the discomfort isn't a reoccurring incident.
