According to the NY Times, Mets starter Jon Niese passed a battery of tests at Henry Ford Hospital on Tuesday that he underwent to help determine the cause and nature of his recurring rapid heartbeat.
According to John Ricco, the Mets’ assistant general manager, the initial results showed that everything was normal with Niese’s heart. Ricco said the team was still awaiting the results of one more test, though.
Niese was wearing a heart monitor Tuesday and will wear it for 24 hours, then have the results examined by physicians here.
Ricco said Niese, who is 24, had an electrocardiogram, echocardiogram and a treadmill stress during the exam.
During his start last Saturday in Arlington, Tex., Niese reported having a rapid heartbeat and shortness of breath. After the game, he said he had those symptoms from time to time.
