  • Josh Harrison went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Reds.
    Advice: Harrison connected for a two-run shot off Austin Brice with two outs in the sixth inning. That dinger bumped the Pirates to a 6-1 lead and they would cruise the rest of the way. The veteran second baseman is slashing .297/.344/.426 with four home runs and 18 RBI in 36 games this season.
  • Josh Harrison went 3-for-4 with a sacrifice fly in Tuesday's loss in Arizona.
    Advice: It wasn't all great, as Harrison committed a throwing error. He has been red hot lately, posting two or more hits in five of his past six games to raise his average from .268 to .304 just since June 5. He'll look to stay hot in Wednesday's series finale but it won't be easy against RHP Zack Greinke. He is just 1-for-9 (.111) with a double and an RBI in his brief dealings with the Arizona right-hander.
  • Josh Harrison was lifted from Monday's game versus the Diamondbacks with left shoulder blade discomfort following a hit by pitch.
    Advice: Harrison was drilled with a 96 mph fastball by Braden Shipley, so it's no surprise he's sore. He'll undoubtedly have a nasty bruise but should be fine.
  • Josh Harrison homered and stole a base Sunday in the Pirates' 7-1 defeat of the Cubs.
    Advice: Harrison went deep for a solo shot off Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks in the top of the first inning. He then singled and stole second base in the top of the third. The 30-year-old infielder holds a decent .295/.340/.419 batting line with three home runs and two stolen bases in 31 games this season. He carries some value in deeper mixed and NL-only fantasy leagues.
  • Josh Harrison singled twice and scored the Pirates' only run in Friday's loss to the Cubs.
    Advice: Harrison singled to lead off the game and scored on a Starling Marte sac fly, but that's the only time all day Pittsburgh was able to dent the scoreboard. The second baseman has tallied multiple hits in three straight contests.
