Harrison (hand) was reinstated from the 60-day DL on Monday, Adam Berry of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This move is just a formality since there's no DL in the offseason. Harrison fractured his fifth metacarpal back in early September and there's still no guarantee that he'll be ready to go at the start of training camp in mid-February.

Harrison (hand) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison has been out since Sept. 3 after being hit by a pitch, which fractured his hand. Unfortunately, moving him to the 60-day disabled list will bring the utility man's season to an end. Over 128 games, Harrison hit .272/.339/.432 and mashed 16 home runs, the most of his career. In a corresponding move, the Pirates selected Dan Runzler's contract from Triple-A Indianapolis.

Harrison has been diagnosed with a fracture of the fifth metacarpal on his left hand and has been placed on the 10-day DL by the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison was forced to exit Saturday evening's game after getting hit by a pitch, and it was later reported he visited an orthopedic hand specialist. The utility man did not receive good news, and it turns out his league-leading 23rd hit-by-pitch will be a costly one. The team did not provide a timetable for return, but did call up infielder Chris Bostick to take Harrison's spot on the roster. Look for Sean Rodriguez to see most of the available reps at the keystone while Harrison is on the shelf, with Max Moroff another potential candidate to draw the occasional start.

Harrison will visit an orthopedic hand specialist, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Pirates want to get a better idea of where Harrison stands after he was hit in the hand by a pitch Saturday. Sean Rodriguez replaced Harrison in the game and would presumably start at second base in the coming games if Harrison isn't cleared.

Harrison left Saturday's game against the Reds after being hit by a pitch in the fifth inning, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison took his base after being plunked by a Tyler Mahle pitch, but he was replaced at second base by Sean Rodriguez the following inning. It was Harrison's 23rd hit-by-pitch this season, most in the majors.

After sitting out Monday's game, Harrison will return to the lineup Tuesday, batting second while playing second base.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison is hitless in his last seven at-bats after seeing a six-game batting streak (9-for-26) come to a close. He has just two hits in 23 career at-bats against Tuesday starter Jake Arrieta.

Harrison went 1-for-4 against the Dodgers on Wednesday, breaking up Rich Hill's no-hitter and winning the game with a 10th-inning walkoff homer.

EDGE Analysis

Like the rest of the Pirates, Harrison had been nothing more than a victim of Hill's virtuoso performance through nine innings, as he struck out twice against the lefty earlier in the game. This time was different, though, as he sent a 2-1 pitch just over the left-field wall -- not the most impressive homer, but still one for the history books: No other player in MLB history had broken up a no-no with a walkoff homer in extra innings. For fantasy owners' purposes, this is just another bit of help from Harrison, whose 16 homers, 12 steals, 63 runs and .281 average are helpful stats across a wide variety of formats.

Harrison went 1-for-3 with a solo homer Friday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison crushed his 14th home of the season to tie the game at one in the first inning of a home loss. He's been a useful fantasy player based on his solid batting average and 12 steals, but his slugging percentage is a pedestrian .431.

Harrison went 3-for-5 with a two-run home run and three runs scored during the Pirates loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The bomb came in the first inning, striking an early blow to St. Louis pitcher Adam Wainwright and giving his team a 2-0 lead early in the matchup. It was his 13th home run of the season, which ties his career high set in 2014. His power numbers overall are up this season, as he's on pace to finish with a slugging percentage north of .400 for just the third time in his career.

Harrison is out of the lineup Thursday against the Tigers, Stephen J. Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

EDGE Analysis

Harrison will receive a day off following six straight starts, including an 0-for-3 trip to the plate during Wednesday's loss to Detroit. In his place, Sean Rodriguez picks up a start at the keystone, batting seventh.
