Harrison dealt with multiple ankle injuries in 2014, but the infielder seems to be insinuating that this ailment is minor in nature compared to those injuries. The Pirates will likely take it easy with Harrison in the short term, but if his statement holds true, he should be able to return to action well before the end of spring training. Pittsburgh will likely take an extended look at a few of their younger infield options until Harrison is ready to return to the lineup.

Harrison and the Pirates avoided arbitration by agreeing to a $2.8 million contract for 2015, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

He was rewarded with a pay raise of more than $2 million in his first go-around in the arbitration process. It's worth noting Harrison's .315 batting average was likely buoyed by a BABIP 40 points higher than his career average, indicating random chance played at least a small part in his breakout season.
