Rotation pushed back

Jonathon Niese

Starting Pitcher
New York Mets


The New York Mets will stay on rotation, but their starters will be pushed back due to Tuesday's rainout.

Left-hander Jonathon Niese, who was slated to pitch on Tuesday, will throw on Wednesday night against the Washington Nationals. Right-hander Dillon Gee will face the Nationals on Thursday.

Right-hander R.A. Dickey (Friday), left-hander Chris Capuano (Saturday) and right-hander Mike Pelfrey (Sunday) will be the starters versus the New York Yankees in the Subway Series this weekend.
