Kirk deprived of NL rookie award

By Adam Rubin

Kirk Nieuwenhuis was beaten out for the NL Rookie of the Month award by Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Wade Miley, who went 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in April.

Miley happens to be opposing Dillon Gee on Friday at Citi Field as the Mets return home after getting swept in Houston.

Will Nieuwenhuis be able to seek some revenge? That only will be the case if Terry Collins opts to start Nieuwenhuis against the southpaw.
