Mets left-hander Jon Niese, who is under control for another four seasons, is expected to agree to a long-term deal with the organization, according to a baseball source.

The eventual deal is believed to be comparable to the five-year, $28.5 million deal that included two team options -- for $11 million and $11.5 million.
