Mets' Harris transferred to bereavement list
DETROIT -- Mets outfielder Willie Harris and his wife, Trey, lost their baby Thursday morning after five months of pregnancy.

Harris rushed back to New York late Wednesday after learning that his wife had unexpectedly gone into labor. The Mets placed him on Major League Baseball's paternity list following the game, replacing him on the roster with Fernando Martinez. The following day, he was transferred to the bereavement list, which carries a minimum requirement of three days missed and a maximum of seven.

Harris and his wife have two other children: a 16-year-old daughter, Arianna, and a 9-year-old son, Trevez.
