Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) struck out nine batters over five innings during an extended spring training game Thursday, May 28, and he will throw a bullpen session Sunday, May 31.
Fantasy Tip: Harrison is a long way from returning any fantasy value, and he should be left on the waiver wire in the majority of formats. At best, he could reward a speculative stash in AL-only leagues.
