This is good news.
Jeff Niemann made his first Class AA start and lasted 21/3 innings. Niemann had made three relief appearances for the Biscuits since returning from a shoulder injury he suffered in May at Class A Visalia.The right-hander allowed one hit, struck out five and walked none before giving way to Chris Flinn.
I can't wait until he gets some innings under his belt. But its clear, he will be a force in years to come.
