News Good On Niese, Lefthander To Begin Rehab
Jonathon Niese underwent a second MRI on his pitching shoulder Monday to determine the fate of his partially torn rotator cuff.
According to ESPN’s Adam Rubin the exam yielded positive results, and the left-handed pitcher will begin rehabilitation in Port St. Lucie immediately.
Niese underwent tests at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. The MRI, originally scheduled for last Thursday, was pushed off until Monday because Niese’s doctor was away on vacation.
The 26-year-old has not pitched since being pulled from his June 20 start against the Braves in the fourth inning. The team labeled the injury as a partially torn rotator cuff, and placed the pitcher on the disabled list. Initial reports advised the team to wait two weeks before taking any further steps.
It appears the wait has paid off.
