Harris played 119 games for the Chicago White Sox last season, hitting 0.256 (99 hits in 386 at-bats) with 7 homers and 27 RBIs. Compared to his prime, his productivity at the plate has declined significantly, but his versatility to cover second and third base, shortstop as well as the outfield remains.

After being rejected by the White Sox after the season, he found a new team as a free agent. Philadelphia’s main second baseman and third baseman are Bryson Stott and Alec Bom, respectively. MLB.com, the official homepage of the Major League Baseball (MLB), predicted that ‘Harris is likely to play as a utility player in Philadelphia’.

Debuting with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2011, Harris has worked for the Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals and Oakland Athletics. His career (12 years) performance was 1168 games, batting average of 0.272, 71 home runs, 378 RBIs and 91 stolen bases. He was also an All-Star in 2014 and 2017 while playing for Pittsburgh.
