NIESE: Sound move by Mets

In his weekly interview with WFAN Terry Collins relayed the information that Jonathon Niese is unlikely to require surgery on his partially torn rotator cuff.

Collins, claiming to have spoken to Niese on the phone, said that the pitcher was feeling “tremendous.”

“He is not going to need any surgery” Collins said.

“Next week he is going to get another MRI to reassess how its doing and how he’s feeling, and hopefully after the other MRI he can start throwing.”

Niese was recently placed on the 15-day disabled list after an initial MRI determined that his rotator cuff had a partial tear.

Lets not forget that Collins originally came out and said the damage was “nothing severe,” only to be contradicted when assistant GM John Ricco revealed the true extent of the injury.

While this news allegedly came from Niese himself, we’ll have to take Collins word for it.
