Angels add OFs Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Alfredo Marte to active roster
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

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.
