    Mets left-hander Jon Niese left Tuesday's game against the Dodgers in the third inning after taking a comebacker off his right leg, but X-rays were negative and Niese expects to make his next start. Niese is 2-1 this season with a 3.81 earned run average. Niese, who normally does a considerable amount of running and cardiovascular work the day after his starts, planned to scale down his workout Wednesday. The Mets later diagnosed a bruise between the ankle bone and Achilles tendon in his right leg. “If that’s what he think he needs, an extra day, I certainly don’t want him to go out with a sore lower leg and then all of a sudden mess up his shoulder or something,” Manager Terry Collins said. “He’s fine.”
