You never want to see an injury at any level in baseball and the one to Milwaukee Brewers’ prospect, Monte Harrison really hurts. Last night, Ryan Collingwood reported that Harrison injured his leg rounding third base and the reports are in the injury is as bad as expected.

Harrison later tweeted the worst that the ankle is broken and he looks towards the road to recovery.
This injury could not have come at a worse time for Harrison. After struggling in Low-A Wisconsin for the first half of the season, the young star was shining since playing in Helena. Through his first 28 games in Helena things were clicking for the 19-year-old, as he was batting .299 with three home runs and an .884 OPS. He also added 14 steals. These numbers helped to boost confidence and show exactly why the top-prospect was so highly touted.
With this severe injury it will be a long road to recovery, but Harrison won’t let the injury break him. In his picture on Twitter, he was all smiles, and though he faces a long comeback trail I expect the extremely talented prospect to get back to a high level as he returns and have a big part in future Brewers’ outfields. We at Reviewing the Brew wish him the best on a speedy recovery.
