Harrison was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Tuesday.
Harrison spent four days on the big-league roster, going 1-for-5. He'll head to the minors for regular at-bats with Brian Anderson returning from an oblique injury in a corresponding move.
Harrison was recalled by the Marlins on Friday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Harrison is an interesting but flawed prospect, with significant contact issues holding back what would otherwise be a very exciting profile. He struck out in over half of his 51 plate appearances in his major-league debut last season, hitting just .170/.235/.255, but still managed to steal six bases. He'll likely fill a bench role during his time with the team.
The Marlins optioned Harrison to Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
In addition to Harrison, the Marlins also optioned another one of their top position prospects in first baseman Lewin Diaz to Jacksonville, where both he and Harrison will be able to play on an everyday basis. With Corey Dickerson, Starling Marte and Adam Duvall all seemingly locked in as at least large-side platoon players in the outfield, Harrison likely wouldn't have been in line to play more than two or three times per week had he made the Marlins' Opening Day roster.
Harrison went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base Wednesday as the Marlins beat the Red Sox 8-4.
Harrison stole his fourth bag of the season Wednesday night but the young outfielder continues to struggle at the plate with a .146/.222/.244 slash line to go along with 24 strikeouts in 41 at-bats. He should be back on the bench Thursday assuming Starling Marte (undisclosed) is able to return to the lineup.
Harrison went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in Wednesday's 29-9 loss to the Braves.
In a game where quality pitching was difficult to come by for either side, Harrison somehow looked helpless at the plate, as he swung and missed eight times during the night. Harrison has now struck out four times twice already this season and at least three times on five occasions, leaving him with a bloated 56.4 K%. After Harrison, Steven Souza has the next-highest strikeout rate (48.4 percent) among all MLB players with at least 30 plate appearances this season.
The Marlins recalled Harrison from their alternate training site Monday.
Harrison will return for his second stint with the big club after going 4-for-33 (.121 average) with a 3:21 BB:K over 14 games during his first callup period. With the Marlins acquiring Starling Marte ahead of last week's trade deadline to take over as the team's everyday center fielder, Harrison looks poised to fill a depth role while he's up with Miami.
Harrison was optioned to the alternate training site Friday.
The 25-year-old was recalled in early August for his big-league debut with the Marlins in dire need of players following the team's COVID-19 outbreak, but he'll return to the alternate site with many of the impacted position players now active. Harrison struggled in his first taste of the majors, going 4-for-30 with one homer, one stolen base and 18 strikeouts in 13 games.
Harrison is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Mets, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.
Harrison would have likely been overmatched against Mets starter Jacob deGrom, so the Marlins will give him a strategic day off. Strikeouts have predictably been a big problem for Harrison thus far (55.9 percent strikeout rate) in his rookie season.
Harrison isn't in the lineup Monday against the Mets.
Harrison blasted his first home run of the season Saturday, but he'll take a seat for the second time in the past four games. In his absence, Magneuris Sierra will take over as the center fielder.
Harrison went 1-for-2 with a walk and a solo home run in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Atlanta.
With the Marlins down a run, the rookie led off the eighth inning by crushing a Will Smith fastball the other way and over the fence in right-center field for his first career homer. Harrison is still only hitting .150 (3-for-20) in nine games since his promotion, but Saturday's performance should give him a confidence boost.
Harrison is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Braves, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Harrison will stick on the bench for the second straight contest, and he's 2-for-18 with two RBI, a stolen base and 11 strikeouts through eight big-league games. Magneuris Sierra will start in center field and bat ninth for the Marlins.
Harrison is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against Toronto, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Harrison hits the bench after starting three straight games. He's accomplished very little in the first 20 big-league plate appearances of his career, grabbing two hits while striking out 11 times. Magneuris Sierra will be the center fielder in his absence.
Harrison is not in the lineup Friday against the Mets, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Harrison collected his first major-league hit and stolen base Thursday, but he'll return to the bench for Friday's contest. Magneuris Sierra will start in center field and bat ninth for the Marlins.
Harrison is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader at Baltimore, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old was recalled for his big-league debut Tuesday, but he's struggled through his first two games in the majors, going hitless with four strikeouts in six plate appearances. Magneuris Sierra is starting in center field and batting ninth in Wednesday's nightcap.
Harrison went 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in his big-league debut Tuesday.
Getting the start in center field and hitting ninth, Harrison had trouble making any kind of contact. The 24-year-old has posted some big strikeout numbers in the minors, including a brutal 36.9 percent K-rate at Double-A in 2018, so Tuesday's performance can't be considered much of a surprise. If Harrison does begin to figure things out, however, he has the tools to make a fantasy impact.
Harrison was recalled from the Marlins' alternate training site Tuesday and is starting in center field and batting ninth against the Orioles, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
The 24-year-old will unsurprisingly make his major-league debut Tuesday, with the Marlins returning to action after a week off due to the COVID-19 outbreak among the team's players and staff. Harrison had a .274/.357/.451 slash line with nine homers and 20 stolen bases at Triple-A last season and should see plenty of playing time, at least until the roster is back up to full strength.
Harrison is expected to be recalled from the Marlins' alternate training site to make his major-league debut sometime this week, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
The 24-year-old missed out on the Opening Day roster despite an impressive summer camp, but it appears he'll make his way to the majors early in the season. The Marlins are in need of players with over half of the 30-man roster unavailable following the COVID-19 outbreak among the players and staff, so it's not a major surprise Harrison is set for a promotion. He spent 2019 at Triple-A and had a .274/.357/.451 slash line with nine homers and 20 stolen bases in 56 games.
Harrison will not be on the Marlins' Opening Day roster, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Previous reports indicated that Harrison had been impressing in summer camp, but he'll begin the year at the team's secondary campsite nonetheless. Manager Don Mattingly cited a desire to see him get regular at-bats to help him start making more consistent contact as the primary reason for the decision.
Harrison continues to push for the starting right field job during summer camp, Jordan MacPherson of The Miami Herald reports.
While the 24-year-old continues to help his case with an impressive first week of summer camp, Harrison's path to a starting job is also getting clearer thanks to the absence of other players. Neither Matt Joyce nor Lewis Brinson has made an appearance in camp yet, and if they remain unavailable through Opening Day or simply aren't ready due to a delayed start to camp, Harrison would likely only need to beat out Harold Ramirez to claim the job. Harrison posted a strong .274/.357/.451 slash line through 56 games at Triple-A last season with nine homers and 20 steals in 22 attempts.
Marlins manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that Harrison is "back into the equation" for the Opening Day roster during summer camp, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.
Despite impressing in Grapefruit League play back in February and March, Harrison was assigned to Triple-A Wichita shortly after MLB suspended its season. However, following baseball's three-plus-month hiatus, the cancellation of the minor-league season and the implementation of a 60-man roster pool, Harrison now has a realistic chance to make an impact for the Marlins in 2020. The likes of Jonathan Villar, Corey Dickerson, Matt Joyce, Lewis Brinson and Harold Ramirez will all presumably be ahead of Harrison in the outfield pecking order, but the 24-year-old could be the next man up after that quintet.
