Nats trade P Jerry Blevins to Mets for OF Matt den Dekker
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

The Nationals acquired outfielder Matt den Dekker from the Mets in exchange for pitcher Jerry Blevins, the organization announced on Monday

Den Dekker adds depth to a Nationals position group that could begin the season without both Denard Span and Jayson Werth. In 80 career major-league games, den Dekker has posted a .238/.325/.310 slash line. 

Den Dekker told ESPN that when he was called into the Mets' office he figured he was being sent to the minors. With Washington, he'll have an early shot at playing time. 

Blevins spent just one season with the Nationals in 2014 and went 2-3 with a 4.87 ERA in 57.1 innings pitched.

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."
