Jon Niese was outstanding today. He threw his fastball, cutter, and curveball for strikes, induced very weak contact across all three of his innings, and was both quick and efficient from start to finish. It wasn’t unlike what he produced after June 1 last season. His velocity seemed to be down somewhat, but I’m sure that will improve as he builds more innings throughout the Spring.

The Mets host the Marlins tomorrow afternoon at Tradition Field, with Matt Harvey facing Alex Sanabia at 1:10 pm.
