— Player Notes
Advice: It's the first time he's thrown off a mound since going on the disabled list. The Mets haven't put an official timetable on Niese's return, but the expectation is that he'll rejoin the rotation on July 21 in Seattle if all goes well.

Advice: That's just one day later than he's eligible to return. Tests have revealed inflammation of the AC joint in Niese's left shoulder, which, all things considered, was good news. Niese resumed a throwing program on Thursday. The left-hander posted a 2.96 ERA over 17 starts before being placed on the disabled list over the weekend.Rotoworld
Advice: Niese was placed on the disabled list over the weekend with what was termed as a left shoulder strain. The hope is that anti-inflammatory medication will enable him to rejoin the Mets rotation when the second half begins. Still, given the number of arm issues he has dealt with over the past year, that's far from a guarantee.

Advice: Niese left his last outing after being hit in the back by a line drive, but it's his shoulder that's sending him to the DL. The left-hander has seen his velocity drop in recent starts and might be dealing with fatigue. Niese will surely undergo an MRI and/or other exams before it's determined how long he might be out.Mon, Jul 7 Rotoworld
Advice: Niese was hit by a line drive in back during Friday's outing, forcing him to exit after just 12 pitches. However, he's apparently been battling a shoulder issue that's caused a dip in velocity in recent starts. No official announcement has been made, but the Mets are expected to place the left-hander on the DL. "He's got a bruise and he's talked about some other issues," manager Terry Collins said Saturday. "We'll see how he is tomorrow when it's time for him to throw again." Niese dealt with shoulder weakness in spring training and missed nearly two months last season with a partially torn rotator cuff.

Advice: Niese was struck by a line drive off the bat of Alex Rios in the first inning on Friday, but fortunately X-rays came back negative. The Mets will wait and see how he feels on Saturday, but it looks likely that he'll make his next scheduled start as planned.

Advice: The ball struck him directly in the back. He had surrendered a solo homer to Shin-Soo Choo and an Elvis Andrus single before the Rios at-bat. The Mets should provide an update on his status shortly.
