Player Notes
Updating a previous item, Jon Niese will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee on Thursday.

Advice: It had already been reported that Niese would be undergoing surgery on the knee, but the Mets have now shined a little light as to the exact nature of his injury. Per the New York Times' James Wagner, Thursday's arthroscopic surgery comes with an expected recovery period of around four weeks. Which will almost certainly end his season. Robert Gsellman is taking Niese's rotation spot for now.

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Jon Niese will undergo surgery on his left knee.

Advice: Niese was lifted from Tuesday's game against the Cardinals after he felt a noticeable pain in his left knee. The New York Times' James Wagner is reporting that this is expected to be a relatively minor procedure, one that should take about four weeks to recover from. Still, that will end his season. Robert Gsellman will fill Niese's rotation spot moving forward. Prior to the injury, Niese held a 5.50 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in 121 innings between the Pirates and Mets.

Mets placed LHP Jon Niese on the 15-day disabled list with a left knee injury.

Advice: Niese was forced out of Tuesday's start versus the Cardinals after feeling a shooting pain in his left knee. He managed to record just one out in the first inning before being attended to by the training staff. In a corresponding move, Erik Goeddel was recalled from Triple-A. At this early stage, there is no timetable for Niese's return.

Jon Niese exited his start Tuesday against the Cardinals due to left knee pain.

Advice: Niese walked two and gave up an RBI single to Brandon Moss before leaving with a trainer with one out in the bottom of the first inning. He was eventually charged with three earned runs. Robert Gsellman took over, making his major league debut. Niese could be placed on the disabled list Wednesday with the Mets badly needing a fresh arm.
