NEW YORK (AP) - The 5-month-old daughter of New York Mets catcher Landon Powell has died.
The family said on its Facebook page that Izzy Powell died Friday night of an immune disease that attacked her liver and bone marrow.
The family wrote in a post Saturday that she ``fought until the end'' and ``her life served a great purpose in her short 5 months on this earth.''
Taken by Oakland with the 24th pick on the first round of the 2004 amateur draft, Powell played for the Athletics from 2009-11 and spent last year at Houston's Triple-A team in Oklahoma City. He agreed to a minor league contract with the Mets on Jan. 18.
