Jon Niese's final 2012 start will be Friday at Turner Field, in Game No. 157 of the season. The Mets will use six starters through the last rotation turn, so Niese will not appear during the final series in Miami.

Chris Young will start Saturday and Jenrry Mejia on Sunday at Turner Field.

R.A. Dickey, who bids for win No. 20 on Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates in the home finale, has one remaining start after that. Dickey will be given the option of pitching on Tuesday in Miami -- or against the Marlins the following day on an extra day of rest in the regular-season finale.
