FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: METS BRING BACK SP JON NIESE

Desperate for pitching help, the New York Mets re-acquired veteran SP Jon Niese Monday from the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Sent to the bullpen after a truly awful first half of the season with the Pirates, Niese will likely challenge Logan Verrett for a spot in the Met rotation.

Analysis:  Originally dealt to the Pirates for second baseman Neil Walker, Niese is back in New York where he had less than a sterling locker room reputation.  While Niese was a decnet SP 5 in the past with some useful ERA's, he is a shell of that pitcher and should not be added anywhere.
