2-Time All-Star Josh Harrison Finds New Home

After 13 years of plying his trade as one of the most versatile players in the game, free agent Josh Harrison has found a new MLB team, as he's signed a minor league deal with the Texas Rangers.

The 35-year-old will apparently begin his Rangers tenure at Triple-A, where he'll get reps as a third baseman and second baseman at Round Rock, before likely joining the big club. 

Harrison appeared in 40 games for the Philadelphia Phillies this season, but they released him at the beginning of August. He batted just .204 in Philly with a .554 OPS, but has a career .270 average. 

He's played every single position on the diamond except catcher, with 2B and 3B being his primary positions. 

Harrison made two All-Star appearances while with the Pittsburgh Pirates (2014, 2017), and will certainly add some great veteran leadership to the Rangers clubhouse when he arrives. 

The Rangers are currently without rookie sensation 3B Josh Jung, possibly for the remainder of the season after thumb surgery. The vet Josh won't replace the power of the rookie Josh, but he can provide some defense and veteran know-how to help them plug that hole.
