Harrison hasn't had nearly the opportunities they have, though. Yes he's looked bad, I know, and AAA ain't much better, but c'mon meow.

Cut after next season if he hasn't figured anything out by then.

Harrison, while he has an enormous amount of raw talent, is a fundamental disaster.

Brinson has alway has decent fundamentals, imo.  He just needed to work on his mental approach.  I think there have been several good statements here that may have led to that looking upward - Rowson's confidence enough in him to put him in the middle of the order, consistent playing time rather than platooning, and the departures of Duvall & Marte.  All of those can/could've give him the confidence he needed to couple with halfway decent fundamentals.

The point stands - he still hasn't been given the same opportunities yet.

He hasn't earned them, mind you, but he hasn't had them.

He got the opportunity to play pro ball based on raw talent.

He hasn't gotten the opportunity for a prolonged stint in MLB because he hasn't developed that raw talent.  I think everybody is rooting for him, for obvious reasons.  But raw talent only gets you so far.
