Player Outlook
Kyle Harrison walked three or more batters in 11 of his 20 starts at Triple-A, where automated balls and strikes may have increased walk rates relative to when humans are calling the game. He walked at least one batter but no more than two batters in all seven of his big-league starts, which lends credence to the theory that he may have less of a control issue when the human element is involved. Harrison always missed bats at an elite clip in the minors, with strikeout rates north of 35 percent at every stop. However his propensity to walk batters has held him back at times. The gap between his walk rate at Triple-A (16.3 percent) and the big leagues (7.5 percent) is essentially the difference between a pitcher destined for relief and a pitcher who comfortably projects as a starter. The 6-foot-2 southpaw was the third-youngest pitcher to make five-plus starts in the majors (only Eury Perez and AJ Smith-Shawver were younger), so it's fair to expect further skill development in the coming years for Harrison, who won't turn 23 until August. He is a flyball pitcher (26.8 GB% in the big leagues), but he has a good home park for that approach, as Oracle Park has the third-lowest home run park factor, per Baseball Savant's 3-year rolling average. He should make the rotation out of spring training, but a hamstring injury limited him to 102.1 innings, so the Giants may cap him at around 150 innings in the regular season.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Shelved with ankle sprain

    The Giants placed Harrison on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a right ankle sprain. Harrison had been scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Angels, but his ankle injury will prompt the Giants to go with an impromptu bullpen day for the series finale, with left-hander Erik Miller serving as the team's opening pitcher. The severity of Harrison's ankle sprain isn't clear, but he'll be eligible to return from the IL as soon as June 28. After getting off to a rough start to the season through his first five outings, Harrison had rebounded with a 2-2 record, 3.40 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 44:17 K:BB in 50.1 innings across his subsequent nine starts.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Yields one run in quality start

    Harrison allowed one run on four hits and no walks while striking out three batters over 6.1 innings in a no-decision against Houston on Monday. Harrison had just nine whiffs and three punchouts in the outing, but he kept the Astros off the scoreboard until the seventh frame. The left-handed hurler finished with his second straight quality start and allowed fewer than three runs for the first time since May 7. Harrison hasn't given up more than four earned runs in any of his 14 starts this season, though, helping him maintain a respectable 3.96 ERA despite a mediocre 1.33 WHIP and 68:22 K:BB across 77.1 innings.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Completes six frames in loss

    Harrison dropped to 4-3 on the season in Tuesday's 8-5 loss to the Diamondbacks, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings. Harrison worked a pair of clean innings before the Diamondbacks opened up the third with four consecutive hits, leading to three runs, and then tacked on an unearned run in the fourth. Despite giving up some hard hits early, Harrison was able to buckle down and complete six innings for the first time since May 7. He also managed to not walk a batter for the first time since April 26. The 22-year-old has now given up 20 hits over his last 11 innings, though that also comes with a 10:1 K:BB. Harrison will carry a 4.18 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 65:22 K:BB into his next start, which projects to fall against Houston early next week.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Escapes with no-decision Friday

    Harrison came away with a no-decision in Friday's 8-7 comeback win over the Mets, giving up five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out six. The rookie southpaw got hit hard, serving up loud homers to J.D. Martinez and Mark Vientos in the fifth inning, and Harrison left the mound with the Giants down 5-2 before they once again rallied, becoming only the fourth team since 1900 to win three straight games that it had been trailing by at least four runs. Harrison has pitched into the sixth inning only once in his last five starts, and curiously the exception came at Coors Field. He'll take a 3.90 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 55:21 K:BB through 60 innings into his next outing, which is scheduled to come at home next week against the Phillies.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Good enough for win

    Harrison (4-1) picked up the win Saturday versus the Rockies, yielding three runs on five hits and two walks over five frames. He notched four strikeouts. Harrison was originally supposed to start Friday but got pushed back a day, with the Giants indicating it was because they were keeping an eye on his workload. His velocity was down a bit Saturday and he threw only 79 pitches over his five frames before getting pulled. While not overly sharp, Harrison was still good enough against the Rockies to pick up his fourth victory of the season. While the left-hander's 3.60 ERA and 1.27 WHIP are respectable, he's been a bit of a disappointment from a strikeout perspective with just 49 over 55 innings.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Too wild Sunday

    Harrison allowed three runs on three hits and five walks while striking out five over five innings in a no-decision versus the Reds on Sunday. Walks have become an issue for Harrison in May -- he's issued 12 of them over 17 innings across his last three starts while adding 14 strikeouts in that span. The Reds weren't fully able to capitalize Sunday, scraping together three runs in the first inning but leaving four runners on base over the next four frames before finding more luck against the Giants' bullpen. Harrison has allowed just four runs over his last 23 innings and now has a 3.42 ERA, 1.26 WHIP and 45:17 K:BB through 50 innings across nine starts this season. He's projected to make his next start at home versus the Rockies.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Stymies Rockies at Coors

    Harrison (3-1) earned the win over the Rockies on Tuesday, tossing seven shutout innings while allowing four hits and two walks. He struck out two. Harrison twirled another gem Tuesday night, this time in hitter-friendly Coors Field. He tossed a career-best seven scoreless frames and has now allowed just one run over his last 18 innings pitched. Harrison battled control issues in Triple-A, but he seems to have shrugged off any concerns thus far. Through eight starts, Harrison has gone at least six innings and issued two or fewer walks five times. He's now down to a 3.20 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 40:12 K:BB in 45 innings and projects for a matchup at home against the Reds over the weekend.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Wild in no-decision

    Harrison allowed one run on three hits and five walks while striking out seven batters over five innings in a no-decision against Boston on Thursday. Harrison issued a season-high five free passes -- as many as he had handed out over six starts coming into the contest -- but managed to continuously get out of trouble, as none of the batters he put on base via walk came around to score. The southpaw thus managed to emerge with a no-decision, though his high pitch count of 95 offerings limited him to five frames and prevented him from picking up what could have been his fifth quality start of the campaign. Though Harrison has settled for a no-decision in each of his past two appearances, he's allowed just one run while fanning 14 batters over 11 frames during that span.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Fires six scoreless innings

    Harrison didn't factor in the decision Friday against the Pirates after he struck out seven and allowed five hits and no walks across six scoreless innings. Harrison generated 13 swinging strikes on 93 pitches as he gave up fewer than three earned runs in a start for the first time since his season debut. The right-hander missed out on his third win, however, as the Giants didn't score until Patrick Bailey's walk-off, three-run homer in the ninth. Harrison has a 4.09 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 31:5 K:BB over 33 innings through five starts this season.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Fans eight in no-decision

    Harrison (1-1) didn't factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and no walks over 6.0 innings against Washington. He struck out eight. Harrison turned in his second quality start of 2024 on Tuesday and had most of the damage against him come on one swing of the bat, with CJ Abrams hitting a two-run home run. Harrison has surrendered a long ball in each of his three starts this season but has been a solid arm on the back end of the Giants rotation, owning a 4.76 ERA and a strong 17:3 K:BB through 17.0 innings.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Dealt loss by Dodgers

    Harrison (1-1) took the loss against the Dodgers on Wednesday, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four batters over five innings. Harrison picked up the win in a strong season debut against San Diego last Friday, but he was far less effective in his second start. Los Angeles tagged him for four runs between the second and fourth frames, and the southpaw allowed at least one runner to reach base in each of his five innings. Harrison is San Francisco's top pitching prospect and should be given ample opportunity to develop, but Wednesday's outing is a reminder that he's likely to go through some growing pains along the way.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Impresses in season debut

    Harrison (1-0) earned the win Friday against San Diego, allowing two runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out five without issuing a walk. Harrison was sharp, blanking the Padres through the first three innings before ultimately surrendering a pair of solo homers. The 22-year-old southpaw went 1-1 in seven starts as a rookie last year, posting a 4.15 ERA with a 1.15 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB but serving up eight homers in 34.2 innings. Harrison has shown that he can be an effective MLB starter despite struggling with the long ball early in his career. He's lined up for a tough road matchup versus the Dodgers in his next outing.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Debuts new pitch

    Harrison threw two hitless innings Sunday versus the Rangers, striking out four and hitting a batsman. Harrison has used his cutter more after developing it in 2023 but used it on a limited basis, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Harrison relied on the cutter, which sat in the 90-91 mph range, to maintain an advantage over hitters when he got ahead in the count. The southpaw is expected to make a big leap in 2024 after making seven major-league starts with a 4.15 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 35:11 K:BB across 34.2 innings last season. With the Giants' rotation already hammered by injuries, Harrison is expected to be the No. 2 starter behind ace Logan Webb.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Goes 5.1 innings in return

    Harrison allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two batters over 5.1 innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Thursday. Harrison pitched fairly well in the contest, but the Giants didn't give him much run support. This was the rookie's first start since he was sent to the minors Sept. 15 -- he quickly returned to the big club as a result of Alex Cobb's season-ending hip injury. Harrison appears set to close out the campaign in San Francisco's rotation, though that may not lead to more than one additional start. He's posted a 4.85 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 31:9 K:BB over 29.2 frames through six big-league starts thus far.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Rejoining Giants' rotation

    Harrison was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday. Harrison will rejoin the Giants' rotation this weekend against the Dodgers, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle, with Alex Cobb (hip) and Keaton Winn (COVID-19) out of commission. The rookie left-hander was more miss than hit during his first stint in the majors but made some delivery tweaks during a recent bullpen session and apparently looked good. Harrison has to be considered an extremely risky stream against the Dodgers in fantasy, however.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Comes away with no-decision

    Harrison allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five-plus innings Friday in a no-decision versus the Rockies. The Rockies got to him for three runs in the second inning and Nolan Jones added a solo home run in the sixth to end Harrison's night. Perhaps this represented progress for the rookie, but it still wasn't a particularly impressive effort. He's struck out at least five batters in all four of his starts while posting a 4.87 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 26:7 K:BB across 20.1 innings. Harrison is projected for a home start versus light-hitting Cleveland next week, which should also allow him to avoid a visit to Coors Field when the Giants and Rockies clash again next weekend.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Possible waiver wire pickups

    Harrison owes his high prospect standing to his off-the-charts stuff, but his first stint in the majors figured to be thwarted by horrendous control and early exits. His second start Monday against the Reds entirely changed that thinking. Not only did he go 6 1/3 innings after only once lasting even five at Triple-A Sacramento, but he also threw 65 percent of his pitches for strikes. That's been true in both of his starts, actually, and it's a stark improvement over his 59 percent strike rate at Triple-A. But actually, this turnaround began there. He walked no one in his last two starts, which might explain why the Giants chose now to call him up. Judging by his 11 strikeouts Monday, the improved control doesn't prevent him from missing bats at an insane rate. If you missed out on Cole Ragans, Harrison represents another shot at considerable pitching upside.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Next start slated for Monday

    Harrison's next start for the Giants is expected to come Monday against the Reds, Danny Emerman of KNBR reports. Harrison would be on turn to pitch Sunday, but with Atlanta featuring a right-handed heavy lineup, the rookie is expected to be pushed back a day. Manager Gabe Kapler hasn't officially named starters for Sunday or Monday yet, but the Giants could opt for a bullpen day for their series finale with Atlanta.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Strikes out five in MLB debut

    Harrison did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk over 3.1 innings against the Phillies. He struck out five. The 22-year-old southpaw was greeted harshly in his MLB debut, as Bryce Harper took him deep to right for a first-inning, two-run homer Tuesday. However, Harrison demonstrated his strikeout potential, with each of the first five outs he recorded against Philadelphia coming via the punchout. The strikeouts come as no surprise given he led all of minor-league baseball with 14.5 K/9 prior to his promotion, but his control issues (6.4 BB/9) were the main culprit in limiting Harrison's overall production. He completed five innings just one time in his 21 minor-league starts this year. If he sticks around in San Francisco, the rookie will undoubtedly rack up big strikeout numbers, although his inefficiency and limited pitch counts suggest that quality starts and wins may be tough to come by. Harrison tentatively lines up to face the Reds at home early next week.

  • Giants' Kyle Harrison: Selected for MLB debut

    The Giants selected Harrison's contract from Triple-A Sacramento ahead of his major-league debut Tuesday at Philadelphia. Harrison has officially arrived in the majors just 10 days after his 22nd birthday and will try to help plug the leak in San Francisco's injury-ravaged rotation. The young left-hander was showing an underwhelming 4.66 ERA through 65.2 innings of work this summer at the Triple-A level and will likely be on a limited pitch count after missing most of July due to a Grade 2 hamstring strain, but he possesses an elite strikeout arsenal and should offer considerable fantasy appeal down the stretch.
