RotoWire News: Harrison could see time at third base in addition to second base, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports. "There may be opportunity for conversation if we get short in a position," manager Clint Hurdle said. "If situations change, I do think there is a buy-in that's real with him. I do think his versatility can help him." (3/28/2017)

Profile: Not every breakout super utility man turns into Ben Zobrist. In fact, it's rather rare for a seemingly mediocre player to go full Zobrist. When Harrison recorded a 5.0-WAR season in 2014, the industry consensus was... well, maybe? Harrison's success leaned on a high-ish but believable .353 batting average on balls in play. The most encouraging part was the power - a career-best 13 home runs and .175 isolated power. Fast forward a couple years and the Zo-dream is a distant memory. Harrison's power cratered back into the land of nothingness. He remains a high-BABIP hitter with an aggressive approach. The result is a high average, low-ish on-base percentage, and very little power. The profile is good enough to play most days as a super utility guy. Most teams would love to have a guy like Harrison available to plug needs. Those same clubs would prefer him to be the first guy off the bench rather than a true starter. His role on a fantasy squad is about the same. (Brad Johnson)

The Quick Opinion: Harrison is a classic super-utility dude. He covers his shortcomings at the plate with an aggressive approach. The overall profile would look a lot better if he had any power at all.
