Niese Heading Back to NYC for an MRI

Just effing great. Terry Collins told reporters that Jon is heading back to New York for an MRI on his left shoulder in what is described by Collins as soreness in his triceps since early in camp while Niese is calling it a dead arm.

So what is it? Pain in triceps, sore shoulder, or a dead arm? All three have completely different meanings. More outstanding communication between management and the player. Can this week go ahead and be over with already? Between the drama with Ike and his injury, Tejada being commented on as being out of shape, Vegas saying we are doomed, and now this? Terry calls it precautionary I call it an all around craptastic start to another long season of Mets baseball.

I know it is very early in spring training and these aches, pains, tightness, and precautionary trips to the MRI clinic are probably very common among other teams but I don't follow them and 2014 was supposed to be the year that things begin to turn around. And already we are dealing with distractions and injury. If this lingers along with Jon I would guess that this puts Zach Wheeler closer to his dream of being opening day starter. Probably not a plan anyone was gunning for except him.
