Niese (elbow) exits early, Mets top Cardinals 10-4
Niese will head back to New York for tests, the latest setback for the left-hander in what he described as "the spring training from hell." He is expected to have an MRI exam Monday, and it's unclear when he might pitch again.
Niese first experienced the pain during an intrasquad scrimmage two outings ago. Trainers put him on anti-inflammatories and he didn't have any issues during his first start of the spring Tuesday against St. Louis.
Adam Wainwright had a rocky outing in his third start this spring, allowing three runs and seven hits in 4 1-3 innings for the Cardinals.
