The Mets re-acquired Jon Niese from the Pirates in exchange for LH reliever Antonio Bastardo, Sandy Alderson announced to reporters just after Monday's 4 pm non-waiver trade deadline.

Sandy Alderson said Niese will work out of the bullpen.

Niese, who was dealt to the Pirates from the Mets for Neil Walker last the offseason, had a 4.91 ERA in 23 games (18 starts) this season. He was recently moved to the bullpen by the Pirates.
