Player Notes
Pirates manager Clint Hurdle announced Friday that the struggling Jon Niese has been shifted to the bullpen.

Advice: With Gerrit Cole back, and Jameson Taillon and Tyler Glasnow close to returning, the Pirates have ample rotation options and Niese simply doesn't make the cut. The 29-year-old hurler posted a 5.13 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 71/36 K/BB ratio over 101 2/3 innings in the first half.

According to Marc Carig of Newsday, the Mets haven't ruled out a reunion with Pirates left-hander Jon Niese.

Advice: The Mets' top priority is said to be bullpen help and Carig hears that they weren't keen on a potential reunion as recently as a week ago, but the club is increasingly keeping an eye on potential rotation help as well. That makes sense given that Matt Harvey is done for the year and Steven Matz and Noah Syndergaard have both had some elbow scares. Zack Wheeler is also a big wild card as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Niese was demoted to the bullpen on Friday and owns a 5.13 ERA and 1.57 WHIP on the year. He has clearly fallen out of favor with the organization, as Pirates general manager Neal Huntington indicated on Friday that he wishes he went in a different direction when he traded Neil Walker to the Mets over the winter.

Jon Niese has been moved to the bullpen.

Advice: He's the odd man out, with Jeff Locke getting the nod Tuesday in the first game of the Pirates' three-game series against the Brewers. Niese allowed five earned runs over 3 2/3 innings against the Cubs in his final start of the first half. He has a 5.13 ERA and 1.57 WHIP for the season.
