The Los Angeles Dodgers have valued versatility the past few years so it’s not too big of a surprise that they are linked to a player that can play around the infield and in the outfield.
Jon Heyman reports that the Dodgers are among the teams in on Josh Harrison. He’s spent the past eight seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Last year he slashed .250/.293/.363 with 13 doubles, eight home runs, 37 RBI and 0.3 WAR. He was an All-Star in 2017, as well as 2014.
Harrison has played second, third, shortstop, left field and right field in his career. He would join Kiké Hernandez and Chris Taylor as Dodgers that can essentially play anywhere.
Coming off a down year, Harrison may be reduced to a short-term deal, something that fits the Dodgers plans. The team would be hoping for a bounce-back season from the 31-year-old.
