LAKELAND, Fla. -- The Mets hoped Kirk Nieuwenhuis would be back in a Grapefruit League game Wednesday. Instead, that is now targeted as the first day Nieuwenhuis is scheduled to participate in baseball activity outdoors, Terry Collins indicated.

Nieuwenhuis suffered a bone bruise to his left knee eight days ago on a slide.
