Nationals Sign Josh Harrison To a One Year Deal


The Washington Nationals add a depth piece to their infield as they’ve signed veteran infielder Josh Harrison to a one year deal. Harrison is a 33-year-old infielder who was cut by the Philadelphia Phillies before the season. The Washington Nationals are getting a below average defender and a really poor hitter, but maybe they know something we don’t.

This deal is a team friendly deal and won’t cost much at all and on top of that expires at the end of the season. I don’t think this move was mandatory but with how COVID-19 has rocked the MLB world you can never be too prepared. This being said, Josh Harrison isn’t that great.

Since 2018 Harrison has been a poor position player with some poor slashlines.

Those numbers are certainly bad, and personally speaking I don’t see Harrison starting, but I understand the move. If god forbid a player is injured or out with COVID-19 they aren’t left scrambling for an infielder and still have their in-house backup. The Washington Nationals knew they weren’t getting a star when they chose to sign Josh Harrison, and so it’s an alright move in my book.
