Player Notes
Jonathan Niese tossed a solid outing in a Thursday afternoon no-decision against the Padres, allowing one run on six hits over six innings.

Advice: Niese left the game holding a 7-1 lead after six innings. The bullpen would allow a whopping seven runs to lose said advantage, but Niese deserved better than an ND. He surrendered an RBI single to Matt Kemp in his final inning of work, but otherwise kept the Padres from touching home plate. After holding a 4.42 ERA on May 30, he's managed to work that down to a 3.63 mark through strong work in June and July. His 1.37 WHIP remains a touch on the high side and as the owner of an 80/36 K/BB ratio over 121 1/3 innings, the strikeouts aren't coming at a mind-blowing pace, but he holds value in deeper NL-only formats. A road date with the Marlins is up next on the lefty's schedule.

Mets activated LHP Jon Niese from the paternity leave list.

Advice: Niese will rejoin the rotation on Thursday. He was knocked around in his last start but had been pitching really well before that.

Tue, Jul 28 Rotoworld
Mets placed LHP Jon Niese on the paternity leave list.

Advice: He will be away from the club for up to three days. Logan Verett has been recalled from Triple-A to take his place on the active roster.

Jon Niese was blasted for six runs over three innings Friday against the Dodgers.

Advice: With his wife close to giving birth, it wasn't clear whether Niese would even be able to make the start. He ended up pitching, but it would be understandable if his mind was elsewhere. The southpaw was knocked around for eight hits, including a pair of home runs. Niese entered Friday's start with a 2.28 ERA over his previous eight outings, so he'll attempt to put this clunker in the rear view mirror next week.

Fri, Jul 24 Rotoworld
Jon Niese will make his scheduled start for the Mets on Friday.

Advice: Niese's wife is in labor, so there's always a chance that Niese could make a quick exit in the ballgame to attend the birth of his child. He'll hopefully give the Mets at least a few solid innings before handing the ball over to the bullpen. He can easily be avoided in DFS tonight.

Jon Niese could be scratched from Friday's scheduled start against the Dodgers because his wife is in labor.

Advice: The Mets haven't ruled out him making the start yet, but it's up in the air. If Niese is scratched, they'll pull someone out of the bullpen for a spot start.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Jon Niese "doesn't seem available."

Advice: "He never was," one Mets source told Heyman. It's a surprising revelation given how often Niese's name has been involved in trade rumors (the Dodgers and Cubs were reportedly interested last month). But, the left-hander has been pitching really well of late and it appears the Mets are inclined to keep him.
