Harris experienced an increase in fastball velocity during his scoreless relief inning in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the White Sox, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Harris' heater ticked 93 mph on the gun, up from the 90-92 he'd generated over his previous six appearances. The right-hander had missed several weeks because of a bone bruise in his pitching shoulder, returning to the active roster in late August. Prior to his turn Tuesday, Harris had given up three runs, seven hits and a walk over 4.2 innings in six outings since his activation off the 10-day disabled list. With his velocity returning, manager A.J. Hinch can rely on him for key outs in October.
Harris (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday, Julia Morales of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports. Harris is set to rejoin the Astros' bullpen after missing the past month with right shoulder inflammation. He'll look to reclaim his role as the team's primary setup man and build upon his 2.86 ERA and 17 holds on the season. James Hoyt was optioned to Triple-A Fresno in a corresponding move.
Harris (shoulder) could be activated from the disabled list Sunday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. He rejoined the Astros on Saturday, and while he was not immediately activated, it sounds like he will be reinstated in short order. Harris labored through an inning with Triple-A Fresno on Friday in his second rehab appearance, needing 32 pitches to record three outs, but he should return to a prominent role in the bullpen once fully rested.
Harris (shoulder) will appear in one more game with Triple-A Fresno on Friday, before returning to the Astros on Saturday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Harris was able to toss an inning of work with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, throwing a spotless frame that including one strikeout. Moving forward, the right-hander should be ready to reclaim his spot as the top setup man in Houston's bullpen following Friday's affair.
Harris (shoulder) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Tuesday, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. Harris was able to complete a simulated inning over the weekend, his last hurdle before heading out on a brief rehab assignment. The Astros haven't determined how many rehab outings he'll need -- one or two -- but either way it sounds like he'll be back before the end of the week.
