Player Outlook
Kyle Harrison walked three or more batters in 11 of his 20 starts at Triple-A, where automated balls and strikes may have increased walk rates relative to when humans are calling the game. He walked at least one batter but no more than two batters in all seven of his big-league starts, which lends credence to the theory that he may have less of a control issue when the human element is involved. Harrison always missed bats at an elite clip in the minors, with strikeout rates north of 35 percent at every stop. However his propensity to walk batters has held him back at times. The gap between his walk rate at Triple-A (16.3 percent) and the big leagues (7.5 percent) is essentially the difference between a pitcher destined for relief and a pitcher who comfortably projects as a starter. The 6-foot-2 southpaw was the third-youngest pitcher to make five-plus starts in the majors (only Eury Perez and AJ Smith-Shawver were younger), so it's fair to expect further skill development in the coming years for Harrison, who won't turn 23 until August. He is a flyball pitcher (26.8 GB% in the big leagues), but he has a good home park for that approach, as Oracle Park has the third-lowest home run park factor, per Baseball Savant's 3-year rolling average. He should make the rotation out of spring training, but a hamstring injury limited him to 102.1 innings, so the Giants may cap him at around 150 innings in the regular season.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Holds Rockies scoreless

    Harrison allowed a hit and four walks over five shutout frames in a no-decision Friday. He struck out six as the Giants lost to Colorado. As is often the case, Harrison showed off his potential while struggling to hone his command. Only two Rockies reached scoring position against him and he never faced a significant threat. Harrison has allowed fewer than two runs in six of his 17 starts this year, but he's walked at least four on four occasions. The 22-year-old southpaw lowered his ERA to 3.86 with a 79:31 K:BB through 91 innings. Harrison's next outing is lined up to be a road matchup with the Dodgers.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Secures fifth win

    Harrison (5-4) earned the win over the Twins on Friday, allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out three over 5.1 innings. Harrison allowed four runs on four hits and four walks over 3.1 innings against the Guardians in his first start back from the injured list July 6, so this was a sizable step forward. For the year, Harrison is at a 4.08 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 73:27 K:BB over 86 innings spanning 16 starts. The 22-year-old lefty built up to 83 pitches Friday after throwing 72 pitches in his first start back, and he is tentatively in line for two starts (@LAD, vs. COL) in the first full week after the All-Star break.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Short start in return

    Harrison (4-4) allowed four runs on four hits and four walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings to take the loss Saturday versus the Guardians. Harrison allowed three runs in the first inning and then gave up a solo home run to Steven Kwan in the second. While Harrison managed to settle down after that, he was done for the day after 72 pitches (44 strikes), providing little respite for an overworked bullpen. The southpaw missed nearly three weeks with a right ankle sprain but didn't require a rehab assignment. Harrison has a 4.24 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 70:26 K:BB over 80.2 innings through 15 starts this year. He's projected for a home start versus the Twins next week.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Activated off IL, starting Saturday

    Harrison (ankle) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of his start Saturday against the Guardians, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Harrison landed on the injured list June 16 with a right ankle sprain. He was able to forego a rehab assignment, and he isn't expected to face any major restrictions in his return to the Giants' rotation Saturday. Through 14 starts this season, Harrison is 4-3 with a 3.96 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 68:22 K:BB over 77.1 innings. To make room for the 22-year-old southpaw, right-hander Spencer Bivens was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Won't require rehab stint

    Harrison (ankle) will throw one more bullpen session before returning from the 15-day injured list during the Giants' six-game road trip that begins Tuesday in Atlanta, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Harrison hasn't seen any game action since June 10 due to a sprained right ankle, but he'll be ready to return to the Giants rotation after completing multiple bullpen sessions. While it's unclear when he'll be slotted to start, the 22-year-old is most likely to pitch during a three-game series in Cleveland next weekend. Prior to landing on the IL, Harrison turned in a 3.96 ERA and 68:22 K:BB across 77.1 innings.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Throwing bullpen session

    Harrison (ankle) will throw a bullpen session Friday, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Harrison resumed throwing on flat ground earlier this week and has now been cleared to try things from the bump. It's been more than two weeks since Harrison made a start, so it's likely he'll be asked to go out on a short rehab assignment once he's deemed ready.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Shelved with ankle sprain

    The Giants placed Harrison on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a right ankle sprain. Harrison had been scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Angels, but his ankle injury will prompt the Giants to go with an impromptu bullpen day for the series finale, with left-hander Erik Miller serving as the team's opening pitcher. The severity of Harrison's ankle sprain isn't clear, but he'll be eligible to return from the IL as soon as June 28. After getting off to a rough start to the season through his first five outings, Harrison had rebounded with a 2-2 record, 3.40 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 44:17 K:BB in 50.1 innings across his subsequent nine starts.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Completes six frames in loss

    Harrison dropped to 4-3 on the season in Tuesday's 8-5 loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings. Harrison worked a pair of clean innings before the Diamondbacks opened up the third with four consecutive hits, leading to three runs, and then tacked on an unearned run in the fourth. Despite giving up some hard hits early, Harrison was able to buckle down and complete six innings for the first time since May 7. He also managed to not walk a batter for the first time since April 26. The 22-year-old has now given up 20 hits over his last 11 innings, though that also comes with a 10:1 K:BB. Harrison will carry a 4.18 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 65:22 K:BB into his next start, which projects to fall against Houston early next week.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Too wild Sunday

    Harrison allowed three runs on three hits and five walks while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision versus the Reds on Sunday. Walks have become an issue for Harrison in May -- he's issued 12 of them over 17 innings across his last three starts while adding 14 strikeouts in that span. The Reds weren't fully able to capitalize Sunday, scraping together three runs in the first inning but leaving four runners on base over the next four frames before finding more luck against the Giants' bullpen. Harrison has allowed just four runs over his last 23 innings and now has a 3.42 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 45:17 K:BB through 50 innings across nine starts this season. He's projected to make his next start at home versus the Rockies.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Stymies Rockies at Coors

    Harrison (3-1) earned the win over the Rockies on Tuesday, tossing seven shutout innings while allowing four hits and two walks. He struck out two. Harrison twirled another gem Tuesday night, this time in hitter-friendly Coors Field. He tossed a career-best seven scoreless frames and has now allowed just one run over his last 18 innings pitched. Harrison battled control issues in Triple-A, but he seems to have shrugged off any concerns thus far. Through eight starts, Harrison has gone at least six innings and issued two or fewer walks five times. He's now down to a 3.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 40:12 K:BB in 45 innings and projects for a matchup at home against the Reds over the weekend.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Wild in no-decision

    Harrison allowed one run on three hits and five walks while striking out seven batters over five innings in a no-decision against Boston on Thursday. Harrison issued a season-high five free passes -- as many as he had handed out over six starts coming into the contest -- but managed to continuously get out of trouble, as none of the batters he put on base via walk came around to score. The southpaw thus managed to emerge with a no-decision, though his high pitch count of 95 offerings limited him to five frames and prevented him from picking up what could have been his fifth quality start of the campaign. Though Harrison has settled for a no-decision in each of his past two appearances, he's allowed just one run while fanning 14 batters over 11 frames during that span.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Fires six scoreless innings

    Harrison didn't factor in the decision Friday against the Pirates after he struck out seven and allowed five hits and no walks across six scoreless innings. Harrison generated 13 swinging strikes on 93 pitches as he gave up fewer than three earned runs in a start for the first time since his season debut. The right-hander missed out on his third win, however, as the Giants didn't score until Patrick Bailey's walk-off, three-run homer in the ninth. Harrison has a 4.09 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31:5 K:BB over 33 innings through five starts this season.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Fans eight in no-decision

    Harrison (1-1) didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks over 6.0 innings against Washington. He struck out eight. Harrison turned in his second quality start of 2024 on Tuesday and had most of the damage against him come on one swing of the bat, with CJ Abrams hitting a two-run home run. Harrison has surrendered a long ball in each of his three starts this season but has been a solid arm on the back end of the Giants rotation, owning a 4.76 ERA and a strong 17:3 K:BB through 17.0 innings.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Dealt loss by Dodgers

    Harrison (1-1) took the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four batters over five innings. Harrison picked up the win in a strong season debut against San Diego last Friday, but he was far less effective in his second start. Los Angeles tagged him for four runs between the second and fourth frames, and the southpaw allowed at least one runner to reach base in each of his five innings. Harrison is San Francisco's top pitching prospect and should be given ample opportunity to develop, but Wednesday's outing is a reminder that he's likely to go through some growing pains along the way.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Impresses in season debut

    Harrison (1-0) earned the win Friday against San Diego, allowing two runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out five without issuing a walk. Harrison was sharp, blanking the Padres through the first three innings before ultimately surrendering a pair of solo homers. The 22-year-old southpaw went 1-1 in seven starts as a rookie last year, posting a 4.15 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB but serving up eight homers in 34.2 innings. Harrison has shown that he can be an effective MLB starter despite struggling with the long ball early in his career. He's lined up for a tough road matchup versus the Dodgers in his next outing.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Debuts new pitch

    Harrison threw two hitless innings Sunday versus the Rangers, striking out four and hitting a batsman. Harrison has used his cutter more after developing it in 2023 but used it on a limited basis, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Harrison relied on the cutter, which sat in the 90-91 mph range, to maintain an advantage over hitters when he got ahead in the count. The southpaw is expected to make a big leap in 2024 after making seven major-league starts with a 4.15 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB across 34.2 innings last season. With the Giants' rotation already hammered by injuries, Harrison is expected to be the No. 2 starter behind ace Logan Webb.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Goes 5.1 innings in return

    Harrison allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two batters over 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Thursday. Harrison pitched fairly well in the contest, but the Giants didn't give him much run support. This was the rookie's first start since he was sent to the minors Sept. 15 -- he quickly returned to the big club as a result of Alex Cobb's season-ending hip injury. Harrison appears set to close out the campaign in San Francisco's rotation, though that may not lead to more than one additional start. He's posted a 4.85 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB over 29.2 frames through six big-league starts thus far.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Rejoining Giants' rotation

    Harrison was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday. Harrison will rejoin the Giants' rotation this weekend against the Dodgers, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, with Alex Cobb (hip) and Keaton Winn (COVID-19) out of commission. The rookie left-hander was more miss than hit during his first stint in the majors but made some delivery tweaks during a recent bullpen session and apparently looked good. Harrison has to be considered an extremely risky stream against the Dodgers in fantasy, however.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Comes away with no-decision

    Harrison allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five-plus innings Friday in a no-decision versus the Rockies. The Rockies got to him for three runs in the second inning and Nolan Jones added a solo home run in the sixth to end Harrison's night. Perhaps this represented progress for the rookie, but it still wasn't a particularly impressive effort. He's struck out at least five batters in all four of his starts while posting a 4.87 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 26:7 K:BB across 20.1 innings. Harrison is projected for a home start versus light-hitting Cleveland next week, which should also allow him to avoid a visit to Coors Field when the Giants and Rockies clash again next weekend.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Harrison owes his high prospect standing to his off-the-charts stuff, but his first stint in the majors figured to be thwarted by horrendous control and early exits. His second start Monday against the Reds entirely changed that thinking. Not only did he go 6 1/3 innings after only once lasting even five at Triple-A Sacramento, but he also threw 65 percent of his pitches for strikes. That's been true in both of his starts, actually, and it's a stark improvement over his 59 percent strike rate at Triple-A. But actually, this turnaround began there. He walked no one in his last two starts, which might explain why the Giants chose now to call him up. Judging by his 11 strikeouts Monday, the improved control doesn't prevent him from missing bats at an insane rate. If you missed out on Cole Ragans, Harrison represents another shot at considerable pitching upside.
