Niese leaves game with elevated heart rate

NEW YORK -- Jonathon Niese insists it's not that serious. It sounds bad, an elevated heart rate serious enough that it has now forced Niese out of three starts in his major-league career. It sounds scary, when you hear catcher Anthony Recker talking about how he walked to the mound in the sixth inning Friday night and heard his pitcher say, "My heart's racing." But Niese said Friday night that it's not that bad, and not that scary. Jonathon Niese #49 SPNew York Mets 2014 STATS GM30 W9 L11 BB45 K138 ERA3.
