    NEW YORK -- The New York Mets have cut slumping 40-year-old Bobby Abreu and are calling up outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis from the minors. Gerald McCoy Jersey . The Mets designated Abreu for assignment after Mondays 4-3 loss to San Francisco. His final appearance came in the sixth inning when he was sent up as a pinch-hitter, then pulled after the Giants made a pitching change. Abreu had been out of the majors since 2012 when the Mets promoted him from Triple-A on April 21. He provided a left-handed bat and good patience at the plate as a pinch-hitter, occasional outfielder and designated hitter for games at American League stadiums. Abreu started well, but quickly dropped off. He was hitless in his last 22 at-bats as a pinch-hitter. He hit .238 with one home run and 14 RBIs in 142 plate appearances, and finished up 0 for 13. Overall, Abreu has hit .291 with 288 homers in 18 seasons with Houston, Philadelphia, the Yankees, the Angels, the Dodgers and the Mets. "It was a big step to be out for one year and come back this year," Abreu said. "The feeling right now, its not going to put me down. Im going to stay with my head up." Abreu said he will play winter ball back home in Venezuela and perhaps look to become a hitting coach in the future. "Id like to see if I can pass all the stuff I know to these guys," he said. Lavonte David Jersey .

Galette says he signed the new contract Wednesday. He says he hopes his deal winds up looking like "a discount" for the Saints, who first signed him as an undrafted free agent out of Stillman in 2010. Galette, 266, became a starter last season after Will Smith was placed on injured reserve. Josh Robinson Jersey. He wound up with 12 sacks. Meachem, entering his eighth season, was cut on Saturday, but the Saints were able to find a roster spot for him Wednesday when they placed rookie linebacker Khairi Fortt on short-term injured reserve. Meachem had 16 catches for 324 yards and two TDs last season. Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys WholesaleJerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys ' ' '
