Jon Niese will make his first start since being activated from the disabled list when the Mets face the Reds at 1:10 pm.
The game will air live on SNY and WOR 710 AM radio.
Niese is not likely to throw more than 95 pitches, Terry Collins told reporters before Saturday’s game.
Niese hyperextended his elbow during a game in mid-March, as well as had an MRI on his shoulder earlier this spring. He missed several starts last season as a result of a torn rotator cuff.
This past week, he pitched in a minor-league game and a simulated game in preparation for his start Sunday against the Reds.
