Nieuwenhuis signed a minor-league deal with the Mariners, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

EDGE Analysis

He hit .115/.258/.269 in 31 plate appearances with the Brewers last season and was even a below league average hitter (94 wRC+) with Triple-A Colorado Springs, so it's not surprising he had to settle for a minor-league deal. The Mariners don't have a lot star power in the outfield, but they have plenty of options that are either more established or offer more upside than Nieuwenhuis, so look for him to spend most of the year at Triple-A Tacoma.

Nieuwenhuis will become a free agent following the conclusion of the 2017 season.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis was designated for assignment by Milwaukee in late July after appearing in just 16 games with the club this season, slashing a dreadful .115/.258/.269 in 31 plate appearances. The 30-year-old had been a consistent presence in the big leagues since 2012, but will have to fight during spring training to make a major-league roster following this past season.

Nieuwenhuis was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis will serve as organizational outfield depth moving forward after being sent off from the 40-man roster Monday. He has only played 16 games with the Brewers this season, hitting just .115/.258/.269 in 26 big-league at-bats.

Nieuwenhuis was designated for assignment by the Brewers on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The Brewers needed to clear room for recently acquired Jeremy Jeffress, and Nieuwenhuis was the chosen roster casualty. He cleared waivers earlier in the year, so the Brewers are hoping to pass him through once again and assign him to Triple-A Colorado Springs, where he would continue to serve as organizational outfield depth.

Nieuwenhuis was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis just recently returned to action at Colorado Springs after taking time away to deal with some personal matters. He figures to see only sporadic opportunities while up, as the Brewers' starting outfield of Ryan Braun, Lewis Brinson and Domingo Santana is set, and Hernan Perez is the top reserve.

Nieuwenhuis (personal) is 4-for-18 (.222) since returning from the temporarily inactive list on July 18.

EDGE Analysis

Captain Kirk homered in his first game back from attending to personal matters, but his bat fell more silent since his big return. Nieuwenhuis still projects mostly as an organizational depth piece moving forward given that there are many other high-profile outfield prospects clamoring for playing time in Milwaukee.

Nieuwenhuis was placed on the temporary inactive list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis will likely return to the fold in a few days since this list is used for short absences due to a wide number of personal reasons. The 29-year-old is set to be out for a minimum of three days, but should be able to return shortly after depending on the situation.

Nieuwenhuis was outrighted to Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis cleared waivers after being DFA'd by the Brewers last week, and it appears he's accepted his assignment to Triple-A. He joins an outfield stacked with Brewers' prospects, including Lewis Brinson, Ryan Cordell, and Brett Phillips. It's unclear what Nieuwenhuis' role with the Brewers will be moving forward, seeing as there doesn't appear to be a clear path to playing time in Milwaukee's outfield any time soon.

Nieuwenhuis was designated for assignment Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis has been relatively ineffective to begin the season, going 2-for-25 with one home run and 15 strikeouts in limited playing time. The future is unclear for the 29-year-old outfielder, but he could be destined for a return to the minors should he clear initial waivers. Left-hander Brent Suter takes his spot on the roster.

Nieuwenhuis went 1-for-2 with a double, two walks, and a run scored in Thursday's victory over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Nieuwenhuis made a spot start in center field Thursday and made the most of the opportunity, reaching base three times. He has started just five games this season, but if Keon Broxton continues to struggle with the bat, he could find himself in the lineup a bit more often.
