Jonathon Niese gave up five runs (three earned) on nine hits with no walks and five strikeouts over eight innings against the Giants on Friday.
It wasn't a terrible outing for the Mets' pitcher. In fact, it indicative of the season he is having: not bad but not spectacular. For the year, Niese has a 3.24 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 122.1 innings pitched. Tonight, he had a 3.38 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. He's a decent streaming option, who is most likely not going to dominate anybody.ANALYST:
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
