Angels add OFs Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Alfredo Marte to active roster
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) The Angels added outfielders Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Alfredo Marte to the 25-man roster on Thursday, MLB.com reports.
Nieuwenhuis was acquired from the Mets on Wednesday and will take the spot of Collin Cowgill, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday. He went just 3 for 38 with the Mets before being designated for assignment then traded.
"He's got to get started with seeing some major-league pitching," manager Mike Scioscia said, per MLB.com. "That's the only way you're going to eventually hit major-league pitching is to see major-league pitching. So the quicker we can start that process, hopefully the quicker he'll be productive."
Marte is being added to both the 25-man and 40-man rosters, with the team designating Marc Krauss for assignment. The outfielder hit .343/.401/.540 with four home runs, 32 RBI and three stolen bases in 137 at-bats with Triple-A Salt Lake.

|(5/27/15) The Mets have traded outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis to the Angels. New York will receive cash considerations.
Mets assistant general manager John Rico previously made it known that the team was actively shopping Nieuwenhuis. If the team would have failed to find a suitor for Nieuwenhuis, it would have passed him through waivers.
"It's a nice piece to add to the group," Angels general manager Jerry Dipoto said to the Orange County Register. "Give him an opportunity to see if his physical ability, his athletic ability, his minor league performance will translate, like we’ve done with some other guys."
Nieuwenhuis has three hits in 38 at-bats this season.
