Matt Harrison rumored to be heading to Philly

According to sources, the Rangers will be announcing a trade to acquire starting pitcher Cole Hamels and reliever Jake Diekman for Matt Harrison and five prospects, including catcher Jorge Alfaro.

Fantasy Impact

If this comes true, it answers the question whether the Rangers would be buyers or sellers before the deadline. Apparently, GM Jon Daniels feels his squad still has a chance to earn a playoff spot this year, and is also looking toward the future. The prospect of a rotation featuring Hamels, Yu Darvish, Derek Holland, and a combination of Colby Lewis/Yovani Gallardo/Martin Perez is one that could be very exciting. Of course, Gallardo could still be traded, Lewis would have to be resigned while Darvish, Holland and Perez are all in different stages of rehabbing from surgeries.

Matt Harrison allows six runs in six innings

Matt Harrison allowed six hits and six runs over six innings of work in the Rangers 6-2 loss to the Yankees today. Harrison walked two and struck out two in watching in record fall to 1-2.

Fantasy Impact

Harrison's first three starts since undergoing spinal fusion surgery can be summed up this way: bad start, good start, bad start. Certainly not unexpected results and certainly a player that should only be rostered in the deepest of leagues at this point.

Six strong innings for Matt Harrison

In just his second appearance of the season, Matt Harrison was firing on all cylinders, scattering seven hits over six innings in the Rangers 9-0 win over the Rockies. Harrison (1-1) walked one and struck out two on the day.

Fantasy Impact

Any time you can hold the Rockies scoreless at Coors Field you've done a great job of pitching. A return to form by Harrison would be a huge shot in the arm to the Rangers playoff aspirations.

Matt Harrison gets hit hard in season debut

Matt Harrison, making his first start since undergoing spinal fusion surgery, was hit hard by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the Rangers 7-4 loss today. Harrison allowed six hits and six earned runs in just four innings of work. He walked three and struck out just one.

Fantasy Impact

This should not come as a shock to anyone. Harrison's rehab starts in the minors were not impressive either, but GM Jon Daniels felt it was time to bring him up and see how he would compete against major league hitters. It didn't work out well today, but he is trying to overcome a lot and it might take him a few starts to work out the kinks.

Rangers activate Matt Harrison

The Texas Rangers have activated SP Matt Harrison from the disabled list. To make room on the roster for Harrison, Texas optioned Chi Chi Gonzalez to Triple-A.

Fantasy Impact

Harrison underwent spinal fusion surgery in June 2014, and has been sidelined since. He is slated to start Wednesday. While he's lacked the strikeout upside fantasy owners covet, he's been a solid SP. He's worth monitoring.
