Jon Niese: Cut loose by Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niese (shoulder) was released by the Rangers on Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Niese is expected to be sidelined for the next 4-to-6 weeks due to a shoulder strain, so it was highly unlikely that he would make the team out of camp as things stood. The Rangers opted to simply cut ties with the veteran, leaving him to rehab on his own. He'll likely need to prove his health before he can land another contract. Niese didn't pitch an inning for the Rangers, but he does hold a 4.07 ERA in his nine-year big-league career.

Rangers' Jon Niese: Dealing with strained shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niese is dealing with a strained muscle in his left shoulder and will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks as a result, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

It's unclear when Niese picked up the injury, but the issue is serious enough to keep him sidelined past Opening Day. Given he's a non-roster invitee, it's unclear what the Rangers plan to do with him at this point. Regardless, Niese was expected to open the season in the minors as organizational pitching depth.

Rangers' Jon Niese: Invited to Rangers camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Niese signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Tuesday which includes an invitation to spring training, Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports.

Niese didn't pitch in affiliated baseball in 2017 after failing to break camp with the Yankees. He last appeared in the majors in 2016, when he struggled to a 5.50 ERA and 1.59 WHIP across 121 innings with the Mets and Pirates. The southpaw will get a shot to make the Rangers' Opening Day roster, but he seems more likely to serve as organizational pitching depth in 2018.
