Imagine what this season could have been like if Matt Harrison were around. At this point, as the Rangers claw to a playoff berth, it's hard to even remember Harrison exists.
After making two bad starts at the beginning of the season, Harrison was put on the DL and then underwent two back surgeries before being shut down last month after he had hopes of returning for September and even making a couple of rehab appearances.
Harrison went under the knife again on Monday, having surgery for thoracic outlet syndrome for the second time in his career. The procedure was done on his right side, or non-throwing side, after he had the same procedure done on his left side back in 2009.
The Rangers are confident Harrison will be good to go by the time spring training begins, and adding him to a rotation that is looking pretty salty with Yu Darvish, Derek Holland and Martin Perez expected back is looking even better.
