Mets | Jonathon Niese ready
New York Mets SP Jonathon Niese (shoulder) said he's ready to come off the disabled list and start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday, Aug. 11. Niese thinks he can throw 95 pitches in his first outing back, and the team will continue going with a six-man rotation when he returns. "I'm going to do a lot more rotator-cuff exercises, shoulder exercises, keeping it stronger, obviously to help prevent anything like this happening again," Niese said. "... It will eventually heal, they told me. That's probably something where the time this offseason will take to heal it. As for now, it's pretty much just keeping it strong, keeping the inflammation down. So far, so good."
