In the event Jon Niese is not the Opening Day starter, Terry Collins said Tuesday that Dillon Gee or Bartolo Colon will get the ball (Ehalt, Mar. 11).
Niese told SNY on Monday that he expects to get three or four more starts before Opening Day.
The team has yet to officially announce its starting pitcher for the season’s first game. Niese said he has yet to be told anything, as well.
