Analysis: Niese, who's spent nearly all of his nine-year major league career pitching for the crosstown Mets, should have an opportunity to earn a spot in a Yankees rotation that has two openings behind Masahiro Tanaka, Michael Pineda and CC Sabathia. The 30-year-old also is trying to bounce back from a poor 2016 season in which he posted a 5.50 ERA in 29 appearances (20 starts) with the Mets and Pirates.
