It has been a frustrating week for Cincinnati great Josh Harrison, as he struggles along with the Washington Nationals. Washington, the defending world champions, have been suffering from a definite World Series hangover in this strangest of seasons.

Harrison has been hitting a slim .167 over the past 7 days, dropping his average for the season to a still solid .267.

The Nationals as a whole have been struggling even more than Harrison, sliding to a 20-32 mark and virtual elimination from the National League playoffs.

Harrison’s steady performance in 2020 makes it quite likely that he will remain in the big leagues in 2021, if so inclined. Whether he stays with the Washington Nationals remains to be seen.

For the season, he is hitting .267 with 3 homeruns and 11 RBIs over 60 at-bats. Harrison has played as both an infielder and an outfielder for the Nationals.
