Mets First Crisis of Spring?: Niese’s ‘Dead Arm’

Mets First Crisis of Spring?: Niese’s ‘Dead Arm’

Hyped by on February 27, 2014 Website: doublegsports.com

Two days before the New York Mets’ opening spring training game against the Washington Nationals, their most likely candidate to start on the mound on Opening Day got sent back to New York.

Jonathan Niese complained of a “dead arm” after throwing in Port St. Lucie this week, prompting the Mets to immediately put him on a plane north for an MRI on a shoulder that landed him on the disabled list for two months last season.

Niese sent a text message to MLB.com stressing that this discomfort does not compare to the severity of pain he felt in 2013 before going on the DL with a partially torn rotator cuff. But, given the checkered history of Mets’ pitchers arms the last half-decade, it’s not unreasonable to wonder about the state of that rotator cuff.
