Mets' Kirk Nieuwenhuis ripping through spring training pitching
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

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."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Nieuwenhuis is competing for a spot on the Mets' bench as a reserve outfielder.

"I thought he had a good day," manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "It's good for him. He's fighting for a big spot on this club. He's out of options so it's nice to see him have a big day."

Mets' Nieuwenhuis, den Dekker competing for roster spot
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets left-handed hitters Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Matt den Dekker will be battling for one roster spot this spring, MLB.com reports.

While Nieuwenhuis is out of options, manager Terry Collins indicated that den Dekker has responded to the team's request that he reduce his strikeouts when sent to Triple-A last season.

"We'll just see how it translates this spring into what kind of an offensive player he can be," Collins said of den Dekker. "We know he's got the defensive skills."

Collins said that whichever outfielder shows the most promise will make the initial 25-man roster.

"He plays the game right. He's fearless," Collins said of Nieuwenhuis. "But right now, we've got to get some offense from one of those two guys. Which one of those two guys is going to be able to come off the bench as a pinch-hitter? The best closers in our division are all right-handed, so the left-handed hitter off that bench is going to be a big piece."
