Mets Notes: Nieuwenhuis Leading Off, Niese Takes On Wacha

The 10-10 Mets look to get back up over .500 as they they  continue their series against the Cardinals tonight at Citi Field. Jon Niese (0-2, 2.84 ERA) opposes right-hander Michael Wacha (2-1, 1.73) in what should be a solid 7:10 PM matchup. Jon Niese is 0-2 with a 2.84 ERA since returning from the Disabled List on April 6. There are only three pitchers in the  majors with...

Jon Niese Flying under the Radar

Fantasy owners seem to be sleeping on Jon Niese currently (9% owned in Yahoo and 4% in ESPN).  As you can probably guess, I am here to argue that this is a mistake, and that Niese, and his strong season-to-date line of 2.84 ERA (3.13 xFIP) and 7.6 strikeouts per 9 are worth a look. Those certainly are good stats.  So why have people been so skeptical? There are probably a few...

Why tonight’s game is crucial for the New York Mets

The New York Mets’ Citi Field struggles continued last night in quite the ugly fashion. Nothing went well yesterday for the (not so) Amazin’s. The Mets got outplayed in nearly every phase of the game. Offensively, they couldn’t get a hit off of journeyman Aaron Harang; defensively, Travis d’Arnaud made a costly run-scoring error in the 8th; and in the pitching department...

MMO Game Recap: Braves 6, Mets 0

The New York Mets opened up their 10-game homestand with a disheartening 6-0 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Friday night at Citi Field. Jon Niese started for the Mets and delivered another solid performance holding the Braves to one run on four hits and three walks in his six innings of work, while striking out seven. He certainly pitched good enough to win, but the Mets offense couldn’t...

Mets Notes: Niese on the Hill, Germen Light’s Out, Wright Feasts On Harang

  The New York Mets are back at Citi Field on Friday night to begin a 10-game homestand against the Atlanta Braves. Jon Niese (0-1, 3.46) will make his third start of the season for New York and will be opposed by Aaron Harang (2-1, 0.96) for Atlanta.  Did You Know… Mets starting pitchers have a 15.1 scoreless innings streak dating back to Monday and that they have eight...

Reds trying to avoid sweep in Big Apple

The New York Mets' plan was originally for Jonathon Niese to start on opening day in place of injured ace Matt Harvey. Niese, instead, began the season on the 15-day disabled list and could face a tougher situation in his season debut. The Ohio native has dropped all three career home starts against the Cincinnati Reds, who are trying to avoid their first three-game sweep at...

Niese Sharp In Final Tuneup Before April 6 Start

April 1 update by Joe D. Jon Niese threw 4.2 innings in a simulated game in Port St. Lucie tonight, allowing four runs (two earned) while walking one and striking out four. He threw 49 of 76 pitches for strikes. This is the second minor league start since Niese received a cortisone shot in his pitching elbow to alleviate inflammation. “For the most part, I think I’ll get better...

New York Mets: how to fill Jon Niese’s rotation spot

Jon Niese was projected to be the starter for the first game of the season for the New York Mets against the Nationals on March 31. However, given that Niese has only pitched four innings due to issues related to his elbow and shoulder, that is seriously in doubt. Niese did receive some positive news on his elbow from the MRI which showed that there was shown to be no structural...

Wrapping Up The Day: Niese Gets MRI; Starting Rotation Announced; Shortstop Unsettled

Jonathon Niese, designated to be the New York Mets’ Opening Day starter, was sent to New York for a MRI on his sore shoulder. Niese suffered a rotator cuff injury last year, but the team said this pain was in a different area of the shoulder. Niese’s first exhibition start was to be March 4 against Houston, but that’s not going to happen. The Mets won’t have any word on Niese’s...
