Nationals' Josh Harrison: Remains with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison signed a one-year deal to remain with the Nationals on Thursday.

The veteran infielder will receive $1 million, with further incentives available based on playing time. Harrison performed capably in 33 games for the Nationals this season, hitting .278/.352/.418. His .770 OPS represented the third-best mark of his 10-year major-league career, albeit over just 91 plate appearances.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Enters as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (forearm) struck out as a pinch hitter in a loss to Atlanta on Sunday.

Harrison left the second game of Friday's doubleheader with a left forearm contusion, but he's appeared off the bench over the past two games. The 33-year-old remains in a depth role for Washington, but he appears to be available when needed.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Dealing with forearm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison left Game 2 of Friday's doubleheader against Atlanta with a left forearm contusion, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Harrison took a pitch to his left forearm in the second inning of Friday's nightcap and was replaced by Wilmer Difo defensively in the bottom half of the inning. It's unclear whether he'll be able to suit up Saturday.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Belts third long ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's 9-5 loss to the Red Sox.

Harrison took Zack Godley deep in the fourth inning for his third homer of the season. The utility man has nine hits in 32 at-bats on the campaign and should continue to see sporadic playing time around the diamond for the Nats.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Smacks second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer in Friday's 10-2 win over the Red Sox.

Getting the start at second base but later shifting to third to give Asdrubal Cabrera a breather in the blowout win, Harrison connected on his second homer in nine games since joining the Nats. Just as Cabrera and Howie Kendrick have done over the last few years, Harrison seems to be reviving his career in Washington -- the sample size is small, but a .286/.313/.536 slash line has the 33-year-old on pace for an OPS over .800 for the first time since 2014.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Sits after back-to-back starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.

Harrison started both ends of Saturday's doubleheader split with Miami, going a collective 3-for-5 with a double, a run and an RBI. Now that Howie Kendrick (hamstring) is back in action after missing just over a week of action, Harrison likely won't be in store for regular starts in the near future. With Kendrick serving as the primary designated hitter, Asdrubal Cabrera is expected to pick up most of the starts at third base, while Luis Garcia serves as the Nats' everyday second baseman.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Collects first homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, two RBI and a stolen base Tuesday against the Mets.

Harrison took Steven Matz deep in the second inning, pulling a ball well over the left field wall for his first home run of the season. He was hitless in his two other bats, though he drove in another run on a sacrifice fly in the third inning and stole second base in the fifth frame after reaching on a fielder's choice. Harrison has earned only two starts since joining the Nationals a few days into the season, and his playing time is likely to only dry up further once Juan Soto becomes fully available.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Available Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison passed all COVID-19-related testing and will be available Monday in the Nationals' series opener with the Blue Jays, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

After being released by the Phillies late in summer camp, Harrison agreed to a major-league contract with the Nationals days later, but he wasn't available for Washington's season-opening series with the Yankees while he waited to clear all health protocols. Now that Harrison is officially in the fold for Washington, he'll likely fill a utility role thanks to his prior experience at second base, third base and the outfield.

Nationals' Josh Harrison: Joining Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison agreed to a major-league deal with the Nationals on Saturday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The 33-year-old requested and was granted his release by the Phillies on Tuesday, and he's set to remain in the NL East. Harrison figures to serve in a reserve utility role, and it's difficult to imagine him seeing significant opportunities given the Nationals already have a wealth of veteran infielders (Starlin Castro, Howie Kendrick, Asdrubal Cabrera and Emilio Bonifacio).

Josh Harrison: Nearing deal with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison is nearing a deal with the Nationals, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Harrison was granted his release by the Phillies on Tuesday, and it appears as though he could be close to finding a new home in Washington. The Nationals reportedly had interest in Harrison in the past before they signed Brian Dozier. The 33-year-old slashed .175/.218/.263 over 36 games with the Tigers last year before suffering an injury.

Josh Harrison: Returns to free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison requested and was granted his release by the Phillies on Tuesday, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The 33-year-old joined Philly on a minor-league deal in November, and his request likely means he was unlikely to make the Opening Day roster. Harrison appeared in 36 games with the Tigers last season before going down with an injury and had a .175/.218/.263 slash line.

Phillies' Josh Harrison: Part of 60-man pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison will be part of the Phillies' 60-man roster.

Harrison, who is not on the 40-man roster, enters a crowded mix of veterans competing for reserve utility infield spots. Neil Walker, Logan Forsythe and Phil Gosselin are all in similar boats as non-roster invitees looking to earn the same role. Harrison will have to bounce back from a rough season in Detroit last year, as he saw a career-low .480 OPS across just 147 plate appearances -- his lowest total since 2013.

Phillies' Josh Harrison: Mixed results in spring action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison hit a lopsided .182/.308/.455 in 10 spring games.

Harrison grabbed just four hits in 22 at-bats, but two of those hits were home runs. He's in a tight battle with fellow veteran infielders Neil Walker and Logan Forsythe for what appears to be two bench spots, though he'll probably need an injury or two ahead of him to open up a fantasy-relevant role.

Phillies' Josh Harrison: Gets camp invite from Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison agreed to a minor-league contract with the Phillies on Tuesday which includes an invitation to spring training, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Harrison will join former Pirates teammate Andrew McCutchen if he's able to make the Phillies' roster. The infielder has struggled in two straight injury-filled campaigns, hitting a combined .229/.272/.335, so he'll need to show considerable improvement if he's to win a bench spot.

Josh Harrison: Released by Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (hamstring) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list and released by the Tigers on Friday.

Prior to landing on the shelf, Harrison logged a .176 average in 146 plate appearances. He is a replacement-level infielder at this point in his career, so while he could catch on with another team, it would likely be as a bench player.

Tigers' Josh Harrison: To see 45 at-bats at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (hamstring) is expected to receive around 45 at-bats at Triple-A Toledo before being activated from the injured list, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Harrison was given the green light to embark on a rehab stint Thursday, and the Tigers have since determined how much time he'll need in the minor leagues. He'll likely return to the big leagues in mid-to-late August if all goes according to plan. It's unclear what role Harrison will have upon his activation, per McCosky.

Tigers' Josh Harrison: Cleared for game action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (hamstring) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.

Harrison has been sidelined since the end of May with a hamstring injury but is finally ready for game action. given the length of his absence, the veteran infielder will likely need to play in multiple rehab games with Toledo before being cleared to rejoin the Tigers. Prior to getting injury, Harrison was hitting just .176/.219/.265 with one home run and four steals.

Tigers' Josh Harrison: Resumes running
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (hamstring) has resumed running following a brief setback, Evan Woodbery of reports.

Harrison underwent surgery in early June which was supposed to keep him out for 6-to-8 weeks. The setback seemingly pushes him beyond the back end of that range. He'll be evaluated in about a week, at which point the Tigers will determine if he's ready for a rehab assignment.

Tigers' Josh Harrison: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison is experiencing tightness in his left hamstring, and it's unclear as to when he could begin a rehab assignment, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

Harrison was reportedly closing in on a rehab stint, but following this latest setback, the Tigers are unsure when the 32-year-old could see minor-league action. Skipper Ron Gardenhire mentioned that Harrison's hamstring discomfort could be due to the breaking up of scar tissue. Harrison will likely head for further evaluation to uncover the root of the issue.

Tigers' Josh Harrison: Could return this month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harrison (hamstring) could be activated from the injured list before the end of July, Chris McCosky of The Detroit News reports.

He is close to starting a rehab assignment, but will likely require more than a couple games to get back up to speed since he has been sidelined for almost two months. Once healthy, Harrison should occupy a semi-regular role in the Tigers' infield.
