Mets bring up Martinez, Harris on paternity leave



DETROIT (AP) — The New York Mets have recalled outfielder Fernando Martinez from Triple-A Buffalo and put outfielder Willie Harris on paternity leave.

The team announced the move after Wednesday night’s 16-9 win over the Detroit Tigers.

The 22-year-old Martinez has played nine games for New York this season, hitting .250 with a homer and two doubles. He spent brief stints in the majors in 2009 and 2010 as well.

Harris is hitting .242 with a homer and 10 RBIs. This is his 11th big league season and first with the Mets.
