News: Jon Niese on the DL, RA Dickey Promoted

The Mets have put Jon Niese on the 15-Day Disabled List with a mild strain of his right hamstring, retroactive to May 17.

As such, the team selected the contract of RHP R.A. Dickey from Triple-A Buffalo to start tonight’s game.

…well, so much for Jenrry Mejia going back to the minors… but, i would think he is due for a trip to Buffalo when it’s time for Ryota Igarashi to be activiated from the disabled list, which should be sooner than later

that said, i’m pretty excited to watch dickey’s knuckleball… at least for one game
