Pirates manager Clint Hurdle announced Friday that the struggling Jon Niese has been shifted to the bullpen.
With Gerrit Cole back, and Jameson Taillon and Tyler Glasnow close to returning, the Pirates have ample rotation options and Niese simply doesn't make the cut. The 29-year-old hurler posted a 5.13 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 71/36 K/BB ratio over 101 2/3 innings in the first half. Jul 16 - 10:38 AM
