MIAMI -- Marlins outfield prospect Monte Harrison, trending towards his first big league callup, suffered an injury setback while playing at Triple-A New Orleans.
Harrison, who hasn’t played since Saturday, is being placed on the 10-day Minor League injured list with a hamstring strain.
Ranked by MLB Pipeline as Miami’s No. 3 prospect, Harrison has been a standout at New Orleans, splitting time in center and right field.
In 43 games with the Baby Cakes, Harrison has a slash line of .288/.386/.472 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs. He’s also stolen 19 bases, while being caught just one time.
Since Saturday, Harrison has been day-to-day. But rather than risk anything that could lead to a longer injury stay, the organization placed 23-year-old on the 10-day injured list.
On MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 list, Harrison is ranked 95th.
