Show of support for Nieuwenhuis?

Struggling outfielder Chris Young may be on very thin ice with the New York Mets.

A team insider tells Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com that Young's "days are numbered" and the club is prepared to eat the remainder of his one-year, $7.25 million deal. The move could come as soon as Thursday, when center fielder Juan Lagares is expected to be activated from the disabled list.
