Nieuwenhuis, 27, could never get it going with the Angles after struggling with the Mets earlier this season. He hit a slash line of .136/.208/.227 in 24 plate appearances. It looks like he may be headed for his third team this season.
Kubitza, 24, will make his big league debut today, after having a good start to the 2015 season in Triple-A Salt Lake. He was traded over from the Braves for Ricardo Sanchez this offseason. Sanchez was highly touted, so the expectations for Kubitza will be high.
