Niese gave up four singles and a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning to surrender a 1-0 lead, and the Mets couldn't score again to bail him out. Impact: All-in-all it was a pretty good outing for Niese, especially given how much time he missed in spring training.(RotoWire, )

News: Niese (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Saturday. Impact: Niese progressed through his rehab as expected and will start Sunday's game against the Reds. He thrived at the end of last season but may be a bit undervalued due to his middling season-long numbers, which were likely affected by a shoulder injury. On the other hand, his 3.71 ERA last season was actually better than his career mark of 3.99.(RotoWire, )
