Latest Update Kirk Nieuwenhuis is expected to remain in the hospital the next few days. Mon Sep, 29, 06:35 PM
Has good athleticism. Can play all three outfield positions and has pretty good power. Defensively, he is pretty good and has a good throwing arm.
Flaws: : Needs to put it all together, especially in terms of his game-to-game consistency, to make an impact in the bigs. Strikes out a bit too much, too.
This is a scary situation for Nieuwenhuis, who is dealing a potential serious illness. Hope everything works out for him so he will be able to return for the 2015 season.Analyst: Mark Kaplan
He missed the action on Friday night with an undisclosed illness, and now his condition has taken a turn for the worse. We hope that this gets resolved soon and in a good way, too.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Niehwenhuis should be back in the lineup in one of the Met's final two games this weekend. Matt den Dekker will man centerfield for New York on Friday night.Analyst: David Kerr
Nieuwenhuis is making a case for more playing time with back-to-back strong starts. He is a decent NL-only play, though he has a long way to go to get mixed-league consideration.Analyst: Steve Pimental
