Rangers | Matt Harrison being pushed back

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 09:32:25 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) will have his return to the team pushed back thanks to weather delays and weather-related sub-par performance in minor league rehab outings. The team will have Harrison make at least one more rehab start after his next outing Saturday, April 19, with Double-A Frisco. General manager Jon Daniels said Harrison could pitch on both April 24 and April 29 in the minors. He's expected to go six innings or roughly 95 pitches in his next appearance.

Fantasy Tip: We won't see Harrison back in the majors until sometime in May. Back and neck issues have derailed Harrison over the last year-plus, making him more of an unknown commodity when he returns. Keep him on a watch list in deep mixed leagues if he shows signs of his old self upon his return.

Rangers | Matt Harrison not happy with outing

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 19:37:52 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) allowed three runs, six hits and three walks while striking out two batters over 3 1/3 innings in his second minor-league rehab outing for Double-A Frisco Monday, April 14. "It just wasn't a good night," Harrison said. "Forty-five degrees weather, the wind was blowing. I let a lot of things get in my head. Going up there, getting rained out, sitting around, freezing weather - I just wasn't motivated." Harrison is scheduled to pitch Saturday, April 19, for Frisco or Triple-A Round Rock, and the goal is to throw 95 pitches. The team will then determine whether he's ready to be activated.

Rangers | Matt Harrison not happy with rehab start

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:25:25 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) said his rehab start for Double-A Frisco Monday, April 14, was not a success because he didn't have his breaking pitch in poor weather conditions.

Fantasy Tip: The main takeaway is that Harrison got through the outing without a setback. He'll likely have a few more rehab starts, at least, but look for him to return to the Rangers in a few weeks.

Rangers | Matt Harrison optimistic of return later this month

Tue, 08 Apr 2014 12:31:04 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) threw 62 pitches for Double-A Frisco Tuesday, April 8, and allowed one run in 4 2/3 innings. His fastball was clocked between 89 and 91 mph, and he had good life on all his pitches. Harrison is optimistic that he'll be able to return to the rotation later this month. "My timing was there for the most part," Harrison said. "I got a little bit tired at the end there. I had to make some plays and was able to do that without any issues. It's a step in the right direction. I just need to keep building off of this." He'll throw a bullpen in a few days and then make another rehab start for Frisco Sunday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Harrison on your watch list for later this month if you are looking to add a starting pitcher in deep mixed or AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Not rushing Matt Harrison back

Mon, 07 Apr 2014 16:03:16 -0700

Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the team will not rush SP Matt Harrison (back) back to the rotation. The team has until May 2 to bring him back to the majors. "We've said he should be built up by April 23, but that's not a deadline," Daniels said. "We want to make sure he's 100 percent and able to compete. Really, when he's 100 percent he should be able to dominate before he comes back."
