Matt den Dekker is not the only center fielder in the organization who can turn in highlight-reel plays. Kirk Nieuwenhuis reached over the outfield wall to take away a homer from Stephen Vogt on Friday night in Sacramento.

Since a demotion, Nieuwenhuis is hitting .184 with one homer, four RBIs and six walks in nine games with Triple-A Las Vegas. He has struck out 12 times in 38 at-bats.
