Mets News: Jon Niese getting ready for Sunday's Start against Reds
Mets Starter Jon Niese is getting tuned up and appears ready to return from the disabled list Sunday to face the Cincinnati Reds.
Niese logged 4 2/3 innings and tossed 76 pitches in a minor-league intrasquad game Tuesday night in Port St. Lucie, allowing two earned runs, five hits and walking one, while striking out four.
This is Niese's second time pitching on the mound against minor-league competition since receiving a cortisone injection in his pitching elbow.
