Niese Solid In Back To Back Relief Appearances

In his fourth relief appearance of the season, Jon Niese retired two batters and allowed one hit against the Nationals on Sunday. He also pitched a scoreless inning during Saturday’s game, and has yielded just one run in 3.2 innings of relief during this week. This performance probably cements his spot on the postseason roster.

Jon Niese, like most Mets, has little trade value

It’s a rare day when I haven’t visited MLB Trade Rumors on more than one occasion. I must be a masochist because my visits there are mostly prompted by interest in what the Mets are doing.

Can the “new” Jon Niese continue his success versus the Yankees?

Jon Niese goes to the mound tonight as the Mets look to take the rubber game of the road series against the Yankees. Niese has had pretty good success versus the Yankees in his career, with a 2.05 ERA and 5 BB and 22 Ks in 26.1 IP. He’s also 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA this season. On the surface, things look great for the Mets to win their fourth straight series. But while Niese...
