Nieuwenhuis blasted home runs his first three times up on Sunday.

Nieuwenhuis was unable to hit the fourth one, striking out in his last at-bat. He homered to left, just above the orange home run line, left-center and then hit the pole in right. The home runs were Nieuwenhuis' first three of the season. If Juan Lagares' right right cal sidelines him after the All-Star break, Nieuwenhuis would likely start in center field.

Nieuwenhuis' contract was selected by the Mets on Monday.

Nieuwenhuis' 2015 season has now come full circle. After beginning the season as the bench outfielder for the Mets, the veteran outfielder was designated for assignment and subsequently traded to the Angels. After a short stint with his new club, the same happened there, and the Mets claimed him off waivers. While he won't see consistent playing time in the outfield, he should see spotty playing time.

Nieuwenhuis was called up from Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday, ESPN New York reports.

Nieuwenhuis is set to join the team in advance of Monday's game against San Francisco, but a corresponding move is yet to be announced. After getting off to a disastrous 3-for-38 start with the Mets at the start of the season, Nieuwenhuis was DFA'd and subsequently dealt to the Angels. His stint with the Angels didn't last long, however, and the Mets eventually claimed him back off waivers. He's hit .293 with seven home runs in 58 at-bats for Las Vegas.

Nieuwenhuis was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

Nieuwenhuis has struggled this season, going 6-for-60 between the Mets and the Angels. Because he's out of options, he had to clear waivers to be sent straight to Triple-A Las Vegas. He will try to round back into form and eventually compete for an outfield spot for the Mets.

Nieuwenhuis will likely be sent directly to Triple-A Las Vegas, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Nieuwenhuis was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Saturday, but before allowing him to compete for the role of fourth outfielder, the team will get a longer look at him in Triple-A. Barring an injury at the Major League level, there's little value to find here.

Nieuwenhuis was claimed off waivers by the Mets on Saturday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

The Angels designated Nieuwenhuis for assignment Wednesday, two weeks to the day after they acquired him from New York. Nieuwenhuis will return to his old organization after being claimed, and it's possible he could supplant Darrell Ceciliani as the fourth outfielder before long.
