PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) — Jonathon Niese was relieved to be back at spring training with the New York Mets camp after receiving a relatively good medical report.

The left-hander had a MRI of his pitching elbow in New York on Monday, and the scan revealed he had some inflammation but no damage to his ulnar collateral ligament.

Niese has a 13.50 ERA in two spring training appearances. He was slowed early in camp by muscle weakness in his shoulder, which also was examined in a main stream MRI.
