News: Niese lost his second straight start Saturday, surrendering three runs and five hits over five innings in a 5-2 defeat at Milwaukee. Impact: Niese hasn't been very good latley, going 2-3 over his last six outings with a 5.22 ERA. If you're still hanging on to him it might be wise to let go considering his low strikeout rate as well (6.61/nine innings pitched).(STATS, 6:23pm)

News: Niese (5-6) lost for the second straight outing Saturday, as he gave up three earned runs on five hits while walking two and fanning four in five innings of work against the Brewers. Impact: Things were golden for the 27-year-old until two outs in the fifth inning when a wild pitch, two singles and a double turned a 2-0 lead into a 3-2 deficit. Niese now owns a serviceable 3.23 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and 85 punchouts in 19 starts (114.1 innings) this year and is slated to toe the rubber at home against the Giants in his next start Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Niese has been officially named Monday's starter, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports. Impact: Niese hasn't pitched since July 4, when he took a line drive off his back and had to be removed after recording just one out. He had been on a roll prior to that unfortunate mishap, posting six straight quality starts to go along with a 2.96 ERA. Niese is set to take on Roenis Elias and the Mariners on Monday, and the move will also send Daisuke Matsuzaka to the bullpen.(RotoWire, )
