Mets' Jonathon Niese stifles Padres, takes no-decision Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(7/30/15) Mets starter Jonathon Niese had another terrific outing on Thursday against the Padres. The left-hander went six innings, allowing one run on six hits. He walked one and struck out six, but was left with a no-decision after the Mets blew a six-run lead.
The only run that Niese gave up came in his final inning of work. Otherwise, he did a fine job of keeping the Padres in check
Niese was coming off a rough start against the Dodgers his last time out, but otherwise he has been stellar in recent weeks. Aside from that poor outing last weekend, Niese has posted a sterling 1.95 ERA over his past eight starts.

|(7/24/15) Mets starter Jonathon Niese lost for the first time since June 30, Friday against Los Angeles.

Mets SP Jonathon Niese goes deep into game in no-decision
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/19/15) Mets starting pitcher Jonathon Niese tossed 7 2/3 innings in a olid start against the Cardinals on Sunday.
Niese didn't allow any runs and gave up just five hits. He struck out three batters and allowed one walk while picking up a no-decision.
Niese (5-8) has a 3.36 ERA with 73 strikeouts and 34 walks in 112 1/3 innings this season.
|2014 summary: Jonathon Niese bounced back from a 2013 season that was dampened by a shoulder injury, and he provided the Mets with 187 2/3 innings over 30 starts, even though he had to contend with a shoulder strain. The seven-year veteran had to make the best of reduced velocity, and he coped by throwing strikes and pitching to contact. The approach was largely successful; Niese cut back on his walks, improved his efficiency and finished with a 3.40 ERA. A lack of run support (3.5 runs per nine innings) left Niese with a 9-11 record.|
Playing time status: Though he is the lone lefty in the Mets' rotation, Niese could be a candidate to be moved this offseason. He has never made more than 30 starts in a season, though, so he probably won't provide a high innings total for the Mets or another team.
2015 outlook: Though Niese did a good job of preventing runs last season, two straight years of shoulder problems along with last season's velocity drop raise plenty of questions for 2015. Standard mixed league owners should look elsewhere for late-round pitching bargains because Niese is best saved for deeper formats.
