Jonathon Niese (SP, NYM) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Uncle Leo - RotoBaller

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper Leagues

ANALYSIS: Jon Niese has been pitching well since coming off the DL, and should be added off the waiver wire in deeper leagues where fantasy owners are looking for some SP sleepers depth.  Over 25 2/3 IP, Niese has racked up a very solid 2.45 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 19 Ks.  Not too shabby. He also hasn't allowed more than 3 ER in any of his 4 starts. His next start comes against the Phillies, in Philadelphia, which isn't the greatest matchup. But he did just shut down a potent Cardinals offense his last time out, so Niese can be stashed off the waiver wire at the very least. Pitching in the NL should provide many favorable matchups for fantasy owners going forward.
