Harrison, 24, led the team with six stolen bases and tied for the top spot with eight runs scored in Grapefruit League play. In 15 games, he batted .364 (8-for-22) with three doubles and four RBIs.

Over 54 innings, he struck out 46 and walked 27. A second-round pick of the Mariners in 2015, he made five starts in the Arizona Fall League and was 2-0 with a 1.25 ERA, earning Pitcher of the Week honors on Sept. 29.
