Matt Harrison Can’t Wait For the 2014 Season

matt_harrison_2013Matt Harrison wants to erase the memories of 2013, which consisted of as many surgeries as starts. Harrison pitched twice last season before his back gave him problems. He had surgery on the back and had an operation to relieve Thoracic Outlet Syndrome on his non-throwing shoulder.

“I don’t want to go through something like that again,” Harrison said Wednesday from his home in North Carolina. “I’m eager to get back out here and pitch even more. There was a bad taste left in my mouth after doing all that rehab and being shut down again after putting all the work in. I’ll be glad to get back out there.”

Harrison, 28, said he’s been working out for about a month now and feels good. The back hasn’t given him any problems, and he’s building strength in his arm.
