Kirk Nieuwenhuis Demoted, Jenrry Mejia Added To 25 Man
Terry Collins said Mejia would not be returning to the minors with the Mets needing to take the roster back to 25 players, and suggested the Mets were preparing to use a six-man rotation that includes Mejia for the foreseeable future.
This will leave the Mets with only four bench players.
Nieuwenhuis was hitless in his final 15 at-bats before the demotion and was hitting only .189 with the Mets this season.
