Good news from the Mets (have I ever written those words before?!) — results from the MRI on Jonathon Niese’s shoulder are back, and everything is just fine in there.
Mike Puma of the New York Post tweeted Thursday, “His shoulder is ‘perfect’ and he is expected to resume throwing upon return to camp.”
The “perfect” is in quotes but it is not attributed, so it is safe to assume the Mets or Niese told Puma that. Either way, it is nice to know the Mets Opening Day starter will not need to be shut down.
Jonathon Niese flew to New York on Wednesday (which can’t be good for the shoulder) after complaining of a “dead arm.” Terry Collins said Niese had pain in his triceps, which was in a different spot than the partially torn rotator cuff he suffered last season.
So all is well in the Mets world. For now, anyway.
