Mets | More on Jon Niese

Updating a previous report, New York Mets SP Jon Niese's (shoulder) pain in his left shoulder is in a different part of his shoulder than what he experienced last year when he suffered a partially torn left rotator cuff. He first reported pain early in camp, and the team limited him to long toss. "He just said he's got a little discomfort in there," manager Terry Collins said, "so we're going to have a look."

Fantasy Tip: This can't be good news for Niese, who dealt with shoulder problems last season. Keep an eye on this one. If Niese won't be ready for opening day, John Lannan, Noah Syndergaard or Rafael Montero could sneak into the rotation. Syndergaard has the most upside of the bunch, with Montero not far behind.
