Nationals' Will Harris: Notches first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris gave up a hit and struck out one in a scoreless seventh inning to record his first save of the season during the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

With the score tied 3-3 in the sixth inning, Harris began warming up, but when the Nats took the lead in the bottom of the frame, manager Dave Martinez elected to let the right-hander handle the save chance. Harris had a tough start to his tenure with Washington but has now reeled off six straight scoreless appearances, giving him a 3.06 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 21:9 K:BB through 17.2 innings.

Nationals' Will Harris: Handed loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (0-1) allowed one run on three hits while striking out a batter in an inning of work as he was dealt the loss Wednesday against the Phillies.

Harris entered the game after Patrick Corbin allowed an opening triple to begin the seventh and was unable to salvage a 2-1 lead. He allowed the runner from third to score on an RBI single before Bryce Harper drove in another with two outs. It wasn't all Harris' fault as Victor Robles and Adam Eaton had a collision out in right field on a flyball that neither of them ended up catching. Harris now has a 4.26 ERA across 6.1 innings this season and he should still continue to receive late-inning work for the time being.

Nationals' Will Harris: Comes off IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) was activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander should immediately slot into a high-leverage role for the Nationals. Harris appeared in only two games at the beginning of the season before straining his groin, giving up a run on three hits and two walks over 1.1 innings while striking out two.

Nationals' Will Harris: Could return Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) could be activated from the 10-day injured list Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Harris has been working his way back from a right groin strain that has kept him sidelined since the end of July, but he faced hitters Tuesday. He apparently felt good following the session as manager Dave Martinez suggested that he could return to the active roster Thursday. Once he returns, Harris should take on a higher-leverage role in the Nationals' bullpen.

Nationals' Will Harris: Expected back soon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) looked good after facing hitters Tuesday and is expected to return to action soon, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Harris threw 17 pitches in his session. The Nationals will make their decision about activating him after seeing how he feels Wednesday.

Nationals' Will Harris: Facing hitters Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (groin) will face hitters Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Harris hit the injured list with a strained groin in late July after making just two appearances and allowing three runs (one earned) in 1.1 innings. If he completes his session Tuesday without issues, he expects to be activated shortly thereafter.

Nationals' Will Harris: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris was placed on the 10-day injured list with a strained right groin Friday, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.

The move was made retroactive to Wednesday, so Harris could return as soon as next Saturday. Whether or not he's expected to do so remains to be seen. Harris has appeared twice this season, allowing three runs (one earned) over 1.1 innings.

Nationals' Will Harris: Dealing with groin issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is dealing with a minor groin issue according to manager Dave Martinez, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Martinez added that they're hoping Harris can get through the injury without missing any time with the Nationals entering a four-day period without a game. The former All-Star has gotten off to somewhat of a rocky start in 2020, allowing three hits and three runs over two appearances, one of which ended in a blown save to the Yankees.

Nationals' Will Harris: Charged with blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris gave up a solo home run to Luke Voit in 0.2 innings Sunday to get charged with a blown save in a 3-2 loss to the Yankees. He walked one and struck out one.

The right-hander's debut for the Nats did not go smoothly, as he relieved Patrick Corbin in the seventh inning and promptly coughed up a one-run lead. Harris will fill a high-leverage role this season for his new club, and his track record with Houston suggests better performances are ahead.

Nationals' Will Harris: Takes mound Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris threw a bullpen session Friday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

An abdominal injury prevented the right-hander from seeing any action during the Grapefruit League schedule back in March, but Harris is now 100 percent healthy and should be ready to go for Opening Day later this month. The former Astro will fill a high-leverage role for the Nats out of the bullpen.

Nationals' Will Harris: Plans to be ready for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (abdomen) completed a bullpen session Wednesday and said afterward that he thinks he'll be ready to go for Opening Day, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Though Harris indicated he felt good coming out of Wednesday's workout, the Nationals will proceed more carefully with the reliever as he works back from a left abdominal strain, which is related to the sports hernia surgery he required during the offseason. He's scheduled to throw another bullpen session Friday before likely progressing to a live batting practice session early next week. Harris may only need two or three relief appearances in spring training to guarantee his availability for the March 26 opener.

Nationals' Will Harris: Completes simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (abdomen) threw a two-inning simulated game Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

Harris was shut down last week after tweaking his abdomen but appears to be progressing well toward his return. The team will see how veteran right-hander feels Saturday before determining his potential readiness for his spring debut.

Nationals' Will Harris: To resume throwing this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (abdomen) could begin throwing again early in the week, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander was originally set to make his first appearance of the spring Thursday, but minor soreness in his left abdomen caused him to be shut down for a few days. Assuming he picks back up this week, Harris will still have plenty of time to get ready before Opening Day.

February 27, 2020 03:20 PM
Nationals' Will Harris: Dealing with abdominal issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris tweaked his left abdomen and will be evaluated in 3-to-4 days, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

Harris was originally scheduled to make his spring debut Thursday before suffering the injury. Once healthy, he's expected to fill a high-leverage relief role for the Nationals.

Nationals' Will Harris: Inks multi-year deal with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris agreed to a three-year, $24 million contract with Washington on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Harris turned in the best year of his big-league career a season ago with the Astros, posting a sparkling 1.50 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with a 62:14 K:BB over 60 innings. He also picked up four saves and 26 holds. The right-hander will join the reigning World Series Champions as one of the top arms out of the bullpen and will be a clear choice for a setup role heading into the 2020 campaign.

Astros' Will Harris: Records fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris pitched one-third of an inning to record his fourth save in an 8-5 win over the Angels on Sunday.

The Astros called upon Harris with two outs in the ninth inning and an inherited runner, but he quickly slammed the door with a line-out. The 35-year-old finishes the regular season with a 4-1 record and a 1.50 ERA in 60 innings.

Astros' Will Harris: Has immaculate Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris struck out the side on nine pitches in the eighth inning of Friday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

Harris tossed a so-called immaculate inning, the sixth time it has occurred in Astros history and the first since Brandon Backe in 2004. He has sparkled in 2019 with a career-best 1.51 ERA while recording 26 holds. Harris and Ryan Pressly make a formidable setup crew for the Astros.

Astros' Will Harris: Records third save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris struck out one though a hitless and scoreless two-thirds of an inning to record his third save in a 3-0 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Harris was called upon with one out in the ninth inning after a near no-hit bid from Zack Greinke. With two runners on base, he made quick work of the Mariners to nail down his third save. Harris has stranded 21 of 26 inherited runners. Roberto Osuna had been used three of the last five days and is not loosening his grip on the closer role. The 35-year-old has a 4-1 record with a 1.53 ERA and 59 strikeouts through 58.2 innings.

Astros' Will Harris: Notches second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday to record his second save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Mariners.

Roberto Osuna was getting the night off after pitching Thursday and Friday, so Harris was the next man up in the ninth for the Astros. The 35-year-old now sports a dazzling 1.65 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, four wins, 24 holds and a 56:13 K:BB over 54.2 innings this year.

Astros' Will Harris: Records save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris closed out Saturday's game against the Angels, walking one and striking out one in one inning to record his first save of the season.

Presumably, Roberto Osuna was unavailable after pitching the previous two games and five of the last six. With Ryan Pressly (knee) unavailable, Harris and Hector Rondon have moved into the eighth-inning bridge role. For the season, Harris has a 1.68 ERA with 22 holds.
