Ollie on the DL, Niese to get start

I don't know what to think of this move.  Niese hasn't had a brilliant start to his AAA career.  I know a bit has bit written about extreme bad luck so far (someone posted that his FIP is something like 3.65) and the start is going to be against the Pirates of all teams.... but it really does seem like setting up a young pitcher for failure. 

 

In my perfect world, Niese doesn't even SNIFF the bigs until after the all star break.  His command isn't good enough, IMO, to survive on his weak fastball in the bigs yet.
