Pirates manager Clint Hurdle listed Josh Harrison as a game time decision for today’s tilt with the Cubs. Harrison left yesterday’s suspended game with the Cubs after injuring his ankle. He didn’t play in the second game.
Hurdle said he has a lineup with Harrison in it and one with him out. He said that Harrison’s pre-game response to the ankle will determine if he plays. While there is a delay with the lineup posting, this is great news and means Harrison’s injury is likely only day-to-day.
UPDATE 1:08 PM: Harrison is out of the lineup today.
