Harrison's numbers have appeared to get worse every year offensively. As he has moved away from 3B, his defense has seemed to improve. Unfortunately his prospect status has been dropping and  this year is not helping his case.

At 26 years old he really needs to produce this year.

Time is running out for the young man, I fear.

 

Good luck Travis.

Harrison is only 24 I believe born in 92. My question is why aren't they playing him in AA? I get that he has gotten off to a slow start but....

Correct, October 1992.

He has played 30 games, not sure how many he has not played in...Problem is that this "Slow Start" is following last years slow year...He hasn't had an OPS over 750 since 2013. He just isn't producing and he was drafted for his Bat if I remember right.

Harrison is now hitting 203/301/287 in 143 At Bats. He has struck out 45 times. While horrendous, these numbers are actually coming up (Slowly). The kid needs to catch fire before the draftees start getting signed or he may find himself a mid season roster casualty or a throw in on a Dyson Trade...

Harrison has 5 hits and 10 walks in his last 45 plate appearances for a 143 BA over that span dropping his overall BA to 183 on the year. His OPS has dropped to 555. The kid has lost it and I think it's time the franchise cut bait and see if someone else can save his career cuz it has flatlined in Chattanooga. It's the time of year when promotions start and I'm predicting Harrison will make room for one of those promotions

It's very disappointing. Just three years ago, he was on a trajectory toward being a productive major leaguer. I had him just behind Kepler and Polanco as likely to make it.

You don't automatically get my respect. You have to get down and beg for it.

Harrison has 6 hits in his last 10 games which included 31 at bats for a .194 batting average. One of these hits was a home run that gave him 2 of the 4 RBIs he had over the stretch. He also struck out 10 times in those 31 at bats, 5 of those Ks were on July 30th. His season slash is .179/.312/.292 for an OPS of .604.

This is a prime example of why the Twins need to stop using top draft choices on high school players. They need to focus on college level talent which gives HS players more time to develop and also to drop out. In this case, how much bonus money was paid up front to this guy and 6 years of using organization resources by occupying a slot only for it to be determined that he couldn't cut it Now all of that time and money is for NOTHING. This organization needs to rapidly advance draft choices through the minors and hopefully to the major league roster.
