Sunday Notes: Jon Niese Activated From DL, Will Start Today

Mets left-hander Jon Niese was officially activated from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday night and will make his 2014 regular-season debut in Sunday afternoon’s series finale against the Reds.

Infielder Wilmer Flores was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding 25-man roster move.

While Niese is getting off to a delayed start this season because of elbow inflammation that bothered him for much of spring training, he should be able to throw around 100 pitches in his debut on Sunday.
