It's okay though, the umps realize it and have gifted him a strike zone that extends an extra foot on either side of the plate.
To do so, they've decreed that center-center pitches by Harrison shall be balls.
In reality though, yeah he does look like he's somewhat... off. It could just be a slow start in a day game. Give him a couple more innings and see how he looks.
