Tonight the Mets send Jonathon Niese (7-10, 3.48) to the mound, hoping to bounce back from a disastrous game on Monday in which they committed 6 errors and gave up 9 runs. Brad Penny (1-0, 5.40) will make his third start of the Marlins after signing a minor league deal back in June.

This seems to be unrelated to the fact that Niese left his last start after being hit in the back with a line drive. The team has said that Niese’s shoulder is strained and so they will shut him down for two weeks so he can rest.
