Harrison, who turned 25 in August, turned a pro when the Brewers selected him in the second round of the 2014 Draft. He eventually became a Top 100 prospect, ranking 75th among the best farm workers in the world. Baseball America in 2018, though the Brewers traded Harrison to the Marlins in January of that year in a deal that delivered outfielder Christian Yelich to Milwaukee. Yelich has since made two All-Star appearances and won an MVP, while the Marlins haven’t gotten much major league value from Harrison or any of the other players they’ve received in the. framework of the agreement.
In fairness to Harrison, this is only his first season at the top of baseball, so it’s far too early to determine if he will grow up to be a competent major league. However, he hasn’t produced in his first 47 home plate appearances this season, hitting 0.140 / 0.213 / 0.233 with a homerun and 24 strikeouts.
