Now Commenting On:

Jon Niese pitched in a simulated game Tuesday night in St. Lucie. He went five innings and threw 76 pitches, 49 for strikes.

Niese is tentatively scheduled to make his first regular-season start Sunday, April 6.

Daisuke Matsuzaka will likely fill in in the event he's not ready to be activated from the disabled list.
