Fantasy Tip: Niese ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) likely will return to the starting rotation in the near future. He struggled in his last start but held opponents to three runs or less in the previous eight starts. Niese could be a solid option against certain matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Niese ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) started Friday, July 24, so he may be able to rejoin the team before his next scheduled start. He allowed six runs in his last start but held opponents to two or fewer runs in four of the previous five starts. Niese could be an option on FantasyScore against certain opponents.

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia has been activated from an 80-game suspension for testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. The Mets demoted RP Logan Verrett to clear a roster spot.
Fantasy Tip: Mejia had been the Mets' closer before he was suspended, but he'll face the tough task of climbing over Bobby Parnell and Jeurys Familia on the depth chart. Owners shouldn't be too concerned with Mejia at this point, but he will become a consideration for save opportunities if Familia starts struggling.
