Jon Niese yielded two runs in 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Cubs on Saturday.
He struck out five. Niese allowed six hits and four walks, so it wasn't pretty, but he kept his team in the ballgame. However, a two-run single by opposing pitcher Scott Feldman in the fourth inning was enough to put him on the losing side. The southpaw has allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his last five starts and now owns a 4.15 ERA on the year. He'll face the Braves next week in Atlanta.

Jon Niese said Thursday that an MRI on his left shoulder revealed only inflammation.
Niese has had trouble recovering over his last handful of starts, so the Mets didn't want to take any chances. The southpaw hopes to miss only one start, but it all depends on how his shoulder responds once he resumes throwing. Collin McHugh will fill his rotation spot for the time being.

Collin McHugh will take his spot in the rotation for now, though Zack Wheeler appears on track to make his major league debut in mid-June.

Jon Niese yielded one run and eight hits in seven innings against the Yankees on Monday.
Niese has turned things around nicely his last three starts, though he has just one win to show for it. His ERA should keep coming down, but as poor as the Mets are, he may not be very valuable in shallow mixed leagues at any point.
