Jon Niese signs with the New York Yankees

The New York Yankees and free-agent LHP Jon Niese have agreed to a minor-league deal with an invite to major-league camp.

Fantasy Impact

Niese finished 2016 with an 8-7 record with a 5.50 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP in 121 innings pitched. I love the idea of Niese on the Yankees but even in a holds league its hard to see him having value with Betances and Chapman holding down the bullpen.

Jonathon Niese to have surgery on knee

Jonathan Niese is expected to have surgery on his left knee according to manager Terry Collins. Niese, removed in the first inning of last night's game due to knee soreness, had been experiencing some knee issues over the past week. It is unclear at this point what type of knee surgery he will have, but his season is likely over.

Fantasy Impact

Niese held no fantasy value prior to this news. If he is currently rostered in the deepest of leagues, he and his 5.50 ERA can be dropped.

Jonathon Niese used as batting practice machine by Diamondbacks' hitters

In one stellar inning of "relief" work during the Mets' Thursday afternoon loss to the Diamondbacks, Jonathon Niese gave up three hits, six earned runs, three walks and two strikeouts. His season ERA rose to a robust 5.20 as the Mets lost 9-0.

Fantasy Impact

Niese holds absolutely no fantasy value in any league format. If he is rostered on your team, you should actually be penalized by co-owners and ridiculed mercilessly until your 2017 fantasy baseball draft.

Jon Niese returning to Pittsburgh to have knee examined

Jon Niese will return to Pittsburgh to have his left knee examined. However, the Pirates feel he will be ready to make his next start.

Fantasy Impact

Niese isn't fantasy relevant. He doesn't strike out many batters, and his ratios aren't useful. If anything, he's a pitcher to target with opposing hitters.

Jonathon Niese looks strong Tuesday

Niese allowed just four hits and no earned runs while walking two and striking out two in the Pirates 3-1 win over the Mets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Niese led the Pirates to victory in the day game of the club's doubleheader on Tuesday. With the win, he improves to 6-2. Niese continues to rely on the groundball, which is not surprising, as he got 14 outs via the groundball in this outing. His ERA on the season is now below 4.00 for the first time since April 16.
