Willie Harris Makes the team

Willie Harris was told by Mets Manager Terry Collins today that he has made the team.

"He's played good," Collins said later Sunday morning. "He really had a great spring and brings a lot to the table, which is what we were told he would."

Playing on a non-guaranteed Minor League contract, Harris has batted .269 this spring with five doubles, three home runs and a team-high 12 walks.

If Carlos Beltran's knee issues prevent him from breaking camp with the team, Harris could be the team's Opening Day right fielder. Otherwise, he will serve as a lefty pinch-hitter and backup corner outfielder.
