KIRK NIEUWENHUIS RUMORS

Breakout Candidate: Kirk Nieuwenhuis

Wouldn’t it be nice to have another offensive breakout performance in 2015 akin to what we saw from Lucas Duda this season? How amazing would it be to have back to back breakthrough seasons of that magnitude? Could the power-hitting right fielder we so desperately need already be on the roster? Is it possible? Kirk Nieuwenhuis certainly doesn’t have Duda’s power profile, few...

What’s Next For Kirk Nieuwenhuis?

Kirk Nieuwenhuis is entering to his fourth season this year and is facing a harsh reality of Major League Baseball. He is a fringe player who has run out of options. As Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com points out, Nieuwenhuis is entering this season without a starting position available and as a potential fourth outfielder for the Mets.

Kirk Nieuwenhuis is Making the Most of His Latest Opportunity

One player who is really surprising me with his recent play is Kirk Nieuwenhuis. As I wrote last year on Mets Minors – Kirk was the forgotten man in the depth chart, a player whose star had fallen to the point where he didn’t even get a September call-up when the rosters expanded. But here he is, back with the team since his exile in Las Vegas ended in June, and playing like...

Forget Captain Kirk, Nieuwenhuis should be called Captain Clutch

The 2012 Mets are succeeding thanks to a great record in close games. It is up for debate if they will be able to continue this performance throughout the year but for right now they are 11-3 in games decided by one or two runs. Most fans would say they have done a good job of coming through in the clutch. And perhaps no one has come through in the clutch more than Kirk Nieuwenhuis...
