Mets reverting to five-man rotation until Jon Niese comes back

Jon Niese 1 polaroidTerry Collins told reporters he will use a five-man rotation until Jon Niese comes back from the disabled list.

Carlos Torres will pitch out of the bullpen from this point forward.

Niese is expected to start for Single-A Brooklyn on Tuesday, after which he could be activated and start for the Mets next week – he has been on the disabled list since June with a partially torn rotator cuff.
