Mets get good news on Jon Niese’s shoulder

12 Comments

Jon Niese left Mets camp and traveled back to New York to undergo an MRI exam on his sore shoulder, but Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the news is good.

According to Rubin no new structural damage was found and “Niese should resume throwing within a couple of days.”

Niese had shoulder problems last season too and was diagnosed with a partially torn rotator cuff before actually pitching really well down the stretch, so he’s hardly out of the woods yet. Still, the Mets will always take any good news they can get.
