While D’Arnaud makes his audition, Harrison continues to play everyday.  Were Harrison here, is he suited to sit on the bench?  I like the fact he will play daily over the next two weeks.

This article explains why Harrison is going down.  If you don’t feel like reading, it’s so that we can bring him back up earlier once we resume play in the national league.

Personally, I am not that bothered about sending Harrison down. Like most, I appreciate his undefinable “scrappiness.”

However, besides the empty BA, he played some dreadful 3b defense against the O’s. He had no range to his right and olayed two grounders to his left.

Move Diaz down or DFA him so we can keep Harrison, Pressly and D’Arnaud in the show.
