Even though I have been as harsh on Harrison as anyone the past few years (I never understood Hurdle's insistence on giving him a guaranteed roster spot when he posted an OBP comparable to Barmes and was subpar defensively despite being versatile), 1. 96 ABs (May + June) is more than just a hot streak, and 2. Harrison is basically doing what he always did in the minors (high BA/OBP, no plate discipline), and a spike at this age in his peak years isn't terribly uncommon.

I still anticipate serious regression but I no longer believe it's a guarantee. If it's a quick crash and burn, you can't keep playing him when he also becomes a defensive liability. At the end of the season, I would almost guarantee that Marte will be the more valuable player, in large part due to being an elite defender, but I also think his K% getting down to at least just 20% or so will do wonders for the bat. Make no mistake through, I am very concerned with his K rate hovering around where it is with little signs of improvement.
