Harrison ready to go after bullpen session

NEW YORK -- Matt Harrison is 100 percent again. Harrison threw in the bullpen on Wednesday and did not have any trouble with the bruise on his left arm. Harrison was hit in the triceps with a live drive on Sunday against the Twins, and had to come out of the game in the seventh inning.

But he is confident about his start on Saturday against the Braves after his bullpen session on Wednesday.

"No issues," Harrison said. "I feel the same as I did before. It didn't affect my mechanics or anything. I'm good to go."

Harrison, in 12 starts, is 5-6 with a 3.31 ERA that ranks as the 18th lowest in the American League. But in the past month he has had to deal with a blister on his left index finger, a kidney stone that finally passed on Monday, and a bruised arm. He also had a four-inning shutout against Oakland washed away by rain.
