Jon Niese

Jonathon Joseph Niese
Batted: Left
Threw: Left
Height: 6'4"
Weight: 215 lbs.
Born: October 27, 1986 in Lima, OH
Drafted: 7th round 2005 by the Mets
Departed: traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Neil Walker, December 2015
Acquired: traded from the Pirates for Antonio Bastardo, August 2016
Departed: buyout option exercised, October 2016

 

He was born on the day the Mets won the 1986 World Series. Jon became the best pitching prospect the Mets had remaining in the minors after they emptied out the vault to obtain Johan Santana in 2008, and he did not disappoint, riding a strong combined performance for Binghamton and New Orleans all the way to the big club in September.  For several years afterward, he was one of the Mets' most durable and consistent starters, despite never cracking the threshold of 200 innings.  Was traded to the Pirates after 2015, and then came back to the Mets halfway through the next season, where he was (to put it kindly) ineffective.  He's shown here on 2015 Topps Heritage, and several more cards are pictured below.
