bastardo goes for niese— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) August 1, 2016
The Mets sent out Niese in a deal that netted them Neil Walker. While Walker has played up to expectations for the most part, Niese has been a disaster.
While he has an 8-6 record, he has a poor 4.91 ERA and a 1.545 WHIP. Outside of his rookie year, those are career-worsts. The Pirates shipped out Niese after landing Ivan Nova.
Bastardo, a reliever, appeared in 41 games this year for the Mets. He has a 4.74 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP.Back to the New York Mets Newsfeed
