Mets' Kirk Nieuwenhuis ripping through spring training pitching
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Mets outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis is fighting for a spot in New York's outfield. If he keeps swinging a hot bat, manager Terry Collins will have a tough decision to make, reports NJ.com. Nieuwenhuis went 3-for-4 Sunday with a double.
"He's just swinging very good," Collins said. "He came in with a determination to be the fourth outfielder here. He certainly realizes that his importance is to play all over the outfield and to come off that bench in big situations because, as we've said before, you look at the eighth and ninth inning pitchers in our division - they're all right-handed. We're going to need his bat."
