Analysis: He was on the disabled list from June 21 to Aug. 11 last season with a partial tear in his rotator cuff. Niese said Friday that "this offseason that's pretty much all I was working on. I neglected the other things. So everything was at an imbalance." He complained of a dead arm after throwing live batting practice early this week and was sent to New York for an MRI. The test Thursday revealed some muscle weakness but no structural issues.
