Niece believes that he has an out in his minor-league deal with Yankees. TAMPA -- Jon Niese's first run through baseball free agency didn't go anything close to how he had hoped.

Yankees agree to minor league deal with Jon Niese

According to multiple reports, the Yankees have agreed to a minor league deal with left-hander Jon Niese. He is reportedly in Tampa and either has taken his physical already, or will do so soon.

The Pirates probably aren’t going to catch the National League Central division-leading Chicago Cubs, who hold a 7.5-game lead over Pittsburgh. That said, the wild card is very much attainable for the Pirates. They are just 1.5 games out of the second and final wild-card spot.
