In the 4 IPs, Niese also only yielded 3 hits (0 BB) and 1 ER against the Cardinals. It was another solid spring start for Niese.

Fantasy Impact: Niese projects as a decent late round pick who can round out a fantasy SP staff. His current positional ADP on FantasyPros is 86. Given this ADP, Niese should provide good value and the potential for good spot-start strikeouts depending on the matchup.
