Niemann (shoulder) remains confident he will make a return at some point during the 2014 season, MLB.com reports.
Niemann, who is recovering from shoulder surgery that was performed last April, does not have a contract offer yet, but expects to sign with a team at some point. He will likely have to settle for a minor league contact. He may not be fully ready to pitch until the second half of the season.
