At one time we were considering Jon Niese one of the bright spots to this season. That’s when he was 6-2. He’s now 9-9 after losing four of this last five decisions.
Lack of run support has only been a part of it. Niese has shown a propensity lately to give up the big hit to let an inning get away from him. He’s still young and learning, but minimizing the damage is something he must improve on.
As of now, Niese will enter spring training with Mike Pelfrey and RA Dickey in the rotation, with the other two spots to be filled.
