Armed and Ready: Marcum To Start Saturday, Niese On Sunday
“A little swollen, but it feels good,” Niese describe the injury Thursday morning.
Manager Terry Collins said they didn’t want Niese to break his routine, and he remains on target to make his next scheduled start.
Niese left Tuesday night’s game against the Dodgers after getting hit on his right leg on comebacker off the bat of Mark Ellis and X-rays taken soon after came back negative.
The veteran right-hander has missed nearly the first month of the season, but that hasn’t dampened his expectations much.
“Obviously that goal is not going to happen as far as making all my starts,”” Marcum told reporters.
“But with the snow-outs and stuff I still can come close to 30 starts, so hopefully I can come close to 200 innings and do what I can to go deep into those games.”
Collins has already said that Marcum will be on a 90-95 pitch count against the Phillies tomorrow.
