Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Josh Harrison is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 26. 2B Adam Frazier is starting at second base and batting seventh against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Tuesday.
Fantasy Tip: Harrison is in a dreadful slump with an active 22-for-128 (.172 batting average) run at the dish with a .477 OPS, whereas Frazier has a .359/.405/.590 lash line over his first 42 plate appearances. This has the makings of a timeshare, and unless Harrison pulls out of his funk, he's in risk of losing his job. Frazier is a player on the rise in mixed leagues.

Pittsburgh Pirates SS Jordy Mercer is leading off against Philadelphia Phillies SP Zach Eflin Friday, July 22. Pirates 2B Josh Harrison is batting eighth Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Mercer receives a nice fantasy boost hitting atop the lineup, but he remains nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. He could be worth a longer look than usual in daily contests Friday, though. Harrison is reeling along a 31-for-153 run at the plate since the calendar flipped to June. You can consider replacing him outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.
