Rangers to honor Harrison at awards dinner

Matt Harrison, whose All-Star career with the Texas Rangers was eventually derailed by back injuries and inclusion in the 2015 Cole Hamels trade, will be recognized as the winner of the Mark Holtz Alumni Award on Jan. 20 at the Dr Pepper Awards Dinner.

Harrison went 50-35 with a 4.21 ERA in eight season with the Rangers. Included was an 18-11 season with a 3.21 ERA in 2012 that included his first and only All-Star appearance.

He was the Rangers’ Opening Day starter in 2013 but would undergo back surgery only a month into the season and had another operation after returning in 2014.
