BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 48% of Yahoo! Leagues

ANALYSIS: Josh Harrison has been red-hot at the plate as of late, hitting .351/.413/.474 over his last 14 games, raising his season slash line to a very respectable .303/.366/.468 with seven home runs and five stolen bases. Harrison has the highest walk rate of this career (5.2%) and has a .333 BABIP, not too far off of his .321 career number. Harrison is also hitting the ball hard (31.6%, up from 27.7% last year) and in the air more (40.6% FB, up from 36.3% last year) which has led to seven home runs in his first 53 games, compared to the four he hit in 2015 and 2016. Harrison has a very real chance of putting up numbers similar or possibly even better than his 2014 season, when he hit .315 with 13 home runs and 18 stolen bases.

His multiple position eligibility makes him very valuable and he should be added in most leagues. The Pirates have been surging offensively, scoring 37 runs in the past four games, making him more attractive this week in particular. He was removed from Sunday's game after being hit in the calf for a league-high 10th time, but it doesn't appear to be a serious injury. Harrison may not be valuable enough to be an outright starter at either 2B or 3B in shallower formats, but he is a quality option at utility or middle infield.
