|(5/19/15) The Mets have officially designated outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis for assignment on Tuesday, the team announced. Nieuwenhuis struggled as the team's fourth outfielder, collecting just three hits in 38 at-bats this season.
In a corresponding move, the team has officially promoted fellow outfielder Darrell Ceciliani . Ceciliani was the team's fourth-round pick in the 2009 draft. In 37 games at Triple-A this season, he was batting .336 with five home runs, 17 RBI and six stolen bases.
Mets CF Juan Lagares (side) remains out of lineup on Wednesday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/13/15) As expected, Mets center fielder Juan Lagares is out of the lineup on Wednesday against the Cubs. Lagares will miss the start for the second straight game, as he is battling some soreness on his right side. He could come in as a pinch-hitter, but likely only in the case of an emergency.
Kirk Nieuwenhuis is once again filling in at center while batting seventh for manager Terry Collins. It is possible that Lagares returns to the lineup on Thursday, but the team has not provided an update on his status.
