Pirates | Josh Harrison's streak ends at 10

Mon, 02 May 2016 23:37:37 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison's hitting streak ended at 10 games Monday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: J-Hay is hitting .313 with 15 RBI and five steals. He should be owned just about everywhere and is a daily consideration in the upper-middle second basemen.

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 09:49:50 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Joyce has a .333-2-7 line and is a solid plug-and-play in Coors Field against Tyler Chatwood. J-Hay is on fire and is a daily consideration. Stewart is a basement flyer because of the park.

Pirates | Pittsburgh resting right side of infield

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:48:21 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 1B John Jaso and 2B Josh Harrison are not in the lineup Sunday, April 24, against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray. SS Jordy Mercer will replace Jaso in the leadoff spot while 1B Jason Rogers will occupy first base and bat fifth. INF Sean Rodriguez will slide over to second base and hit sixth.

Fantasy Tip: It's a rest day for Jaso and Harrison, each of whom are hitting well over .300. Mercer is 8-for-15 with a homer in the four games he has played during the Pirates' 10-game West Coast road trip and is a sensible low-cost option in DFS. Rodriguez has homered in each of the first two games of this series and appears to be in the middle of one of his patented power binges, making him a fine short-term pickup.

Pirates | Solid game for Josh Harrison

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 00:34:54 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison had two runs scored and two RBI singles Thursday, April 21, in an 11-1 win over the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison was a .287-4-28 hitter a year ago, but he already has nine runs batted in this season to go with a .302 average. His play didn't make Neil Walker expendable, but the infield of David Freese at third, Jordy Mercer at shortstop, Harrison at second and John Jaso at first base is working very well. Play Harrison as long as he is exceeding expectations.

Pirates | Josh Harrison is hot

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 11:33:58 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Josh Harrison went 2-for-3 in spring action with a triple and double Tuesday, March 29, and he has reached base safely in 10 of his last 11 games and leads the Pirates in doubles (seven).

Fantasy Tip: Harrison likely had his best year in 2014, but he offers fantasy owners a nice mix of decent power and speed at multiple positions. That'll make him valuable in the later rounds of mixed leagues as roster depth.

Pirates | Josh Harrison to start at second base

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 19:23:07 -0800

Pittsburgh Pirates INF Josh Harrison is expected to become the team's full-time second baseman, following the trade of Neil Walker to the New York Mets, according to general manager Neal Huntington. INF Jung Ho Kang (leg, knee) will serve as the regular third baseman once he's completely healthy.

Fantasy Tip: After several years of bouncing between second base, third base and the outfield, it appears as though Harrison finally has a regular position. He hit .287 with four home runs, 28 RBIs and 10 steals in 114 regular-season games in 2015 but shouldn't be considered as anything more than a utility infielder in NL-only and deep mixed leagues at this point.

Pirates | Josh Harrison finished the season hot

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 15:23:22 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison owns a .378 batting average and a .425 on-base percentage with 10 extra-base hits over his past 74 at-bats since Thursday, Sept. 10. With 3B Aramis Ramirez mired in a 2-for-20 stretch at the plate over his past 20 games, Harrison is starting at third base and batting second against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Fantasy Tip: It is no wonder Harrison ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) received the starting nod over Ramirez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), but FantasyScore players will want to think twice about loading up Harrison in their FantasyScore lineups Wednesday. After all, Arrieta ($8,700, 17.4% of cap) has allowed just four earned runs over his past 12 starts.

Pirates | Aramis Ramirez, Pedro Alvarez out Wednesday

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 11:55:18 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez and 1B Pedro Alvarez are not in the starting lineup for the wild-card game Wednesday, Oct. 7. 3B Josh Harrison is starting at third base and hitting second, while 1B Sean Rodriguez is at first base and is batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to recommend anyone against Arrieta, who had the best second half of any pitcher in baseball history. However, Harrison ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is attractive at his price and lineup position. Rodriguez ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) should be avoided.

Pirates | Aramis Ramirez sitting out

Sun, 04 Oct 2015 10:17:05 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 3B Aramis Ramirez is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Josh Smith. 3B Josh Harrison will start at third base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ramirez ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will be in the lineup for the wild-card playoff game. Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has picked up five hits in his last five games but has not recorded an RBI in his last nine games. Owners may be able to find better options to use.

Pirates | Neil Walker has a seat

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 13:20:48 -0700

Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker is out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, with 2B Josh Harrison leading off.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) takes on lefty Brandon Finnegan, and he has hit slightly better against lefties with .288 average this season. He's a low-to-midrange option on FantasyScore.
