Player Notes
Mets designated OF Kirk Nieuwenhuis for assignment.

Advice: Nieuwenhuis had just three hits over his first 38 at-bats this season, so the Mets decided to make a change. Darrell Ceciliani has been called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to serve as an extra outfielder. The 27-year-old Nieuwenhuis has had real issues making contact in the majors, so there's a chance he'll pass through waivers unclaimed.

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets have designated outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis for assignment.

Advice: The Mets have yet to make an official announcement, but it's expected news. Nieuwenhuis is just 3-for-38 (.079) with 17 strikeouts over 27 games this season. The Mets are expected to call up outfielder Darrell Ceciliani from Triple-A in a corresponding roster move.
