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.

Astros' Will Harris: Steps in for Pressly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris served as the eighth-inning bridge to closer Roberto Osuna on Tuesday, striking out two over a scoreless inning in a 2-0 win over Cleveland.

The eighth inning is usually the domain of Ryan Pressly, but he's been dealing with a knee injury the last two weeks. His injury has led to Harris filling the void. He moves from the seventh inning to the eighth and has a 1.77 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 17 holds over 46 games (40.2 innings).

Astros' Will Harris: Gets second win in three outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (3-1) picked up the win in relief in Tuesday's 9-8 victory over the Rockies, despite giving up a run on four hits over his lone inning.

Harris wasn't as sharp as usual, but he deserves some leeway given that he had the unenviable task of pitching at Coors Field. He was at least able to limit the damage to four base hits and scooped up his second win in three appearances after the Houston offense bailed him out with a four-run seventh inning to reclaim the lead. Prior to Tuesday's outing, Harris had posted an 0.86 ERA and 0.95 WHIP over a two-month strength, cementing himself as the No. 3 option in the Houston bullpen behind closer Roberto Osuna and setup ace Ryan Pressly.

Astros' Will Harris: Gives up first runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris allowed two runs on two hits while striking out one in Saturday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Indians.

Harris was responsible for two men on base that came home while Ryan Pressly was pitching. These were the first runs charged to Harris, who had thrown nine scoreless innings over 10 appearances prior to Saturday.

April 7, 2019 11:28 AM
Astros' Will Harris: Leaves inherited men on base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris struck out the lone batter he faced in Saturday's 6-0 win over the Athletics.

Harris entered after starter Wade Miley left the game with two men on and shut the door on Oakland's budding rally. It was the second straight appearance for Harris in which he prevented inherited runners from scoring. The 34-year-old right-hander is pitching middle relief for the Astros but has the confidence of manager AJ Hinch to be used in sticky situations. Harris has allowed one hit while striking out three over 2.1 innings.

March 26, 2019 12:32 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Throws scoreless frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris struck out one in a scoreless inning Monday against the Pirates.

Harris was delayed this spring after undergoing hernia surgery during the offseason and is ramping up for the start of the season. He appeared in five spring games (4.1 IP) and will slot into a middle-relief role for the Astros.

March 3, 2019 06:36 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Behind in throwing program
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris will make his spring debut Monday against the Mets, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Harris underwent surgery in December to repair an umbilical hernia and has been a few weeks behind other relievers as a result. The right-hander has been a dependable soldier out of Houston's bullpen the last four seasons, although his ERA rose to 3.49 in 2018 when his BABIP was consistently above the league average.

January 11, 2019 04:48 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Reaches deal with Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris signed a one-year, $4.225 million contract with the Astros on Friday to avoid arbitration, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The Astros declined Harris' $5.5 million option for 2019 back in November, but they still avoid arbitration at a reduced price. The 35-year-old has been a strong bullpen piece since joining the Astros in 2015 with a 2.58 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 9.6 K/9 in 241 appearances.

November 1, 2018 06:04 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Option declined, remains with Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros declined Harris' $5.5 million option for 2019 on Thursday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports.

Harris still doesn't have six full years of major-league service time, so he'll remain on Houston's 40-man roster as an arbitration-eligible player for the time being. In order for the Astros to retain the reliever, the team will need to tender Harris a contract before Nov. 30. Across 56.2 innings of relief in 2018, Harris posted a 3.49 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 10.2 K/9.

October 13, 2018 02:16 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Left off ALCS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is not on Houston's 25-man ALCS roster against the Red Sox, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

Harris only appeared in one game against Cleveland during the ALDS, and that was strictly for mop-up duty in Game 3 once the Astros went up 11-2 in the ninth inning. In his place, Hector Rondon and Joe Smith were added to the active roster while Myles Straw was also dropped.

July 8, 2018 12:28 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Picks up first hold in 11 outings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris struck out one batter in a third of an inning to pick up his 11th hold of the season in Saturday's 12-6 win over the White Sox.

This was Harris' first hold in 11 games, a stretch of time in which the Astros haven't been in many save situations, negating opportunities for relievers to earn a hold. He's pitched effectively since that previous hold, posting a 2.53 ERA with 17 strikeouts over 10.2 innings, but overall the right-hander's effectiveness has dropped off compared to 2017. Harris' 3.98 ERA this season is the highest it's been since he joined Houston in 2015, likely the product of more batted balls finding holes. A spike in BABIP (.366) has meant runners he puts on base himself and those he inherits are scoring at increasing rates relative to 2017.

Astros' Will Harris: Notches seventh hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris struck out two and allowed a hit in a scoreless seventh inning in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Giants.

Harris logged his fifth straight scoreless outing to pick up his seventh hold of the season. It's getting so that if you see Harris enter a game, you know the Astros are leading and closer Ken Giles is getting ready to enter the game. Harris has earned a hold in four of Giles' last five saves. Manager A.J. Hinch's preferred choice to shepherd games to Giles is typically some combination of Harris, Chris Devesnki and Brad Peacock. The 33-year-old Harris has a 3.24 ERA (2.18 FIP) over 16.2 innings thus far in 2018.

Astros' Will Harris: Takes loss Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (0-1) allowed one run on two hits and two walks in one inning, taking the loss in a 6-5 extra-inning defeat to the Rangers.

Harris has been deployed anywhere from the sixth inning to the end of games this season, being a mostly reliable reliever. He ran into trouble Saturday, but that happens, even to a guy that's been a consistent and reliable reliever in three-plus seasons with the Astros. Over eight appearances in 2018, Harris sports a 2.45 ERA with seven hits, four walks and six strikeouts over 7.1 innings.

March 7, 2018 09:48 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Strikes out two
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris allowed one hit and struck out two over one inning in Wednesday's game against Miami.

Harris was knocked around in his first spring outing, but has followed up with three straight scoreless appearances. The 33-year-old right-hander has been an effective setup man the last two seasons, but missed a month in 2017 due to a shoulder injury. If healthy, he'll be part of the crew that bridges games to closer Ken Giles.

September 21, 2017 06:24 AM
Astros' Will Harris: Velocity returning to normal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

August 27, 2017 01:40 PM
Astros' Will Harris: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
