Pirates infielder Josh Harrison rolled his left ankle after making an over-the-shoulder catch on Saturday at Wrigley Field and is not in the starting lineup for Sunday afternoon’s series finale. Brent Morel is at third base and Jordy Mercer is playing shortstop.

Harrison has been a breakout star this season for the Bucs, batting .315/.348/.513 with 13 home runs and 17 stolen bases across 124 games. The versatile 27-year-old was named to his first All-Star team in July.

Pittsburgh is currently 4 1/2 games back of St. Louis in the National League Central standings and a half-game back for the second NL Wild Card.
