Pirates' Jon Niese: Loses rotation spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niese has been moved to a role coming out of the Pirates' bullpen, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Niese's difficult first half of the season, including a brutal last six starts in which he recorded a 7.92 ERA and a WHIP just under 2.00, ultimately cost him his spot in the rotation. He'll now be used as a lefty specialist out of the bullpen, but his experience as a starter could lead to him being used as an innings-eater when the starter fails to make it deep into a game.

Pirates' Jon Niese: Hit hard in no-decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Niese (7-6) lasted just 3.2 innings Sunday, giving up five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three, but was able to escape with a no-decision in a 6-5 loss to the Cubs.

He got an extra day to rest his sore knee, but it did Niese little good against the buzzsaw Cubs offense. He's been able to last six innings just once in his last six starts, and Niese's 5.13 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in the first half should be causing the Pirates front office to consider their options for his rotation spot if they want to stay in contention for a postseason berth.

Pirates' Jon Niese: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Niese (knee) is starting Sunday's game against the Cubs, Travis Sawchik of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Niese got an extra day to rest his sore knee after his Saturday start was bumped back to Sunday. He'll now take the hill against John Lackey and the Cubs. Niese will look to end the first half of the season on a high note as he's struggled in his last five outings, going 1-4 with a 7.33 ERA and 1.89 WHIP over 27 innings.

Pirates' Jon Niese: Bumped back to Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Niese (knee) will have his next scheduled start bumped back to Sunday against the Cubs, Rob Biertempfel of the Pittsburgh Tribune reports.

Niese was originally in line to start Saturday, but he'll get bumped back to the final day before the All-Star break, which will give him a bit of extra time to rest a sore knee. Additional testing on that knee did not seem to reveal any serious damage, so look for Niese to remain in the rotation following the break as long as he continues to perform well for Pittsburgh. That being said, it wouldn't hurt to check back prior to Sunday's contest to confirm his status.

Pirates' Jon Niese: To have knee examined, not expected to miss start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niese was sent back to Pittsburgh to have his knee examined Tuesday, but he is still expected to start Saturday against the Cubs, the Pittsburgh Tribune's Rob Biertempfel reports.

This is the first that any issue with his knee has come to light this year but supposedly it's not a serious issue, as the team does not anticipate him missing any time. Of course, that could change if the knee exam reveals a notable injury. Niese has a 4.87 ERA and 1.52 WHIP and his 15.6 percent K-rate ranks ninth worst in baseball among qualified starters.
