That's heartbreaking :(
Hopefully it will end up like baby deGrom's post-birth complications; Jacob deGrom was also moved from paternity to bereavement list, due to unspecified complications with the child's birth, but as far as I know, the baby survived and eventually was discharged home.

Players can go on bereavement list without a death, which is the case here. Told there were complications following birth of their child.

That's good news. Perhaps they could come up with a better name than bereavement leave then. It means death.

Castillo put out a message on Instagram that his baby is "out of danger" and they hope to be able to bring him home "soon." Which is wonderful news.

Yeah, call it Emergency Family Leave or something!

Probably different rules about how long you can be out, etc.

Castillo put out a message on Instagram that his baby is "out of danger" and they hope to be able to bring him home "soon." Which is wonderful news.
