The Nationals announced Thursday that they’ve re-signed infielder/outfielder Josh Harrison. It’s a one-year deal for the MSM Sports client. The Nationals have also announced the deal. The deal is for $1MM. Incentives beginning at 200 plate appearances could add as much as $250K to the total, per Jesse Dougherty of the Washington Post (via Twitter).
Harrison joined the Nats early in the season after being cut loose by the Phillies. He quickly became a favorite of the coaching staff for his versatility and clubhouse presence. Especially once Starlin Castro broke his wrist, Harrison’s contributions turned more from a veteran voice to an on-field supporter. The 33-year-old slashed .278/.352/.418 across 91 plate appearances while mostly splitting his time between second, third, and the outfield corners.
Harrison was a two-time All-Star with the Pirates before entering this nomadic phase of his career bouncing between the Tigers, Phillies, and Nats.
More to come.
