Mets | Jon Niese not a bullpen option

Tue, 19 May 2015 19:06:33 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese will not be a candidate to move to the bullpen when SP Dillon Gee (groin) is activated from the 15-day disabled list, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Niese ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) allowed eight runs in his start Tuesday, May 19, but appears to be safe in terms of his spot in the rotation. He is scheduled to face the Pittsburgh Pirates in his next start and may be a risky option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Jon Niese has pitched well against Cardinals

Tue, 19 May 2015 10:28:50 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese is 4-2 with a 2.27 ERA in seven career starts against the St. Louis Cardinals, and he is 2-1 with a 1.35 ERA in his three home starts in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Niese ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is sporting a 3-3 record with a 2.49 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 43 1/3 innings. He's only striking out 5.6 batters per nine innings, though, so he doesn't have much upside at FantasyScore, and a matchup against the Cardinals isn't the most enticing.

Mets | Jon Niese has struggled against Cubs

Thu, 14 May 2015 10:04:35 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese is 3-4 with a 5.16 ERA in eight starts against the Chicago Cubs in his career. Niese faces the Cubs Thursday, May 14. However, he comes into the game having allowed more than one earned run just once in his six starts this season.

Fantasy Tip: Niese ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) enters the game against the Cubs likely as an overlooked FantasyScore asset Thursday. The Cubbies lead all of baseball with the most strikeouts (331). Niese could become a nice contrarian play for daily gamers.

Mets | Jon Niese sharp against Philly

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 22:33:45 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese allowed one earned run while scattering nine hits over 6 ⅓ innings Wednesday, April 15, against the Philadelphia Phillies in a win. He also had two walks and four strikeouts in the 94-pitch quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Niese is 4-0 with a 1.87 ERA over his past six outings against the Phillies. Scribble that down in your DFS notebooks and remember Niese next time the Mets square off with the Phillies May 8-10.

Mets | Jon Niese working on mechanics

Thu, 26 Mar 2015 12:31:21 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese pitched in a simulated game Thursday, March 26, in order to fix his mechanics. Niese noticed during his last bullpen session that he was stepping more toward the first base side when he landed, which fatigued his left shoulder. Niese used the simulated game to step toward the home plate and said his shoulder felt much better.

Fantasy Tip: Niese has made several appearances this spring and has posted solid numbers in his limited innings. Owners should consider selecting Niese in the middle to later rounds of drafts.

Mets | Jon Niese throws two innings

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 13:21:23 -0800

New York Mets SP Jon Niese (shoulder) threw two innings in the team's intrasquad game Tuesday, March 3, and reported no shoulder discomfort following his work.

Fantasy Tip: Niese said he had life on his fastball, which hopefully means a better record than his 9-11 mark and 3.40 earned run average last year. Niese only had 45 walks to go with 138 strikeouts, so if Niese can keep the ratio down and improve the won-loss record he may merit a middle-round selection in most leagues.

Mets | Jon Niese confident in health

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 10:19:21 -0800

New York Mets SP Jon Niese (elbow, shoulder), who opened last year on the disabled list, said he probably should have sat out the opening month because of elbow inflammation. Niese currently doesn't have any concerns with his elbow or left shoulder. "I haven't been this confident with my arm in probably three years," Niese said. "I feel really good. My long toss, I feel a lot stronger."

Fantasy Tip: Despite dealing with injuries, Niese still managed to make 30 starts and hit 187 2/3 innings. He'll be an under-the-radar option not typically drafted in standard leagues, but don't forget his name. Niese could become a nice streaming option in daily games such as FantasyScore.
