Willie Harris Makes 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.
