The Mets optioned Nieuwenhuis to Triple-A Las Vegas after Friday's doubleheader, Andrew Keh of the New York Times reports.
The Mets needed to send a man to the minors after the doubleheader, and Nieuwenhuis was the unlucky victim. He reached base six times against the Brewers on July 5, but he only had four hits and five walks in 35 at-bats since then. He should be back in the Mets' outfield later this summer.
