Mike Baxter has completed his rehab stint and will join the Mets in San Francisco to open up the four-game set with the NL West-leading Giants. Corresponding with the move. Kirk Nieuwenhuis will be sent down to Triple-A Buffalo to make room on the 25-man roster. Nieuwenhuis was batting .252 with seven homers and 28 RBIs in 91 games this year prior to his demotion. He was mired in a horrific slump, batting just .115/.194/.197 since June 19th, striking out in 30 of his 61 at-bats, resulting in his demotion. He joins Lucas Duda, Mike Nickeas and Pedro Beato as some of the recent demotions on the Mets part to get the team back on track. Baxter was batting .323/.392/.523 in his first 40-games of the season with 11 doubles and ten RBIs prior to his collison into the left field wall in order to make a diving stop to keep Johan Santana’s no hitter in tact back on June 1st. The Whitestone kid is returning from broken ribs and a displaced collar bone. Beam Me Down Scotty!
