"I knew it was all just precautionary,” Niese said. “I’m just glad it’s over with and I can move forward through the season.”
Still, Niese said, no cause has been identified. It has occurred “ever since I can remember, but it’s only when I pitch,” Niese said.
Added the southpaw: “It’s not like I’m sitting watching TV and all of a sudden the heart races. Solely on pitching. Just after a pitch, if I hold my breath or something, or if I give extra effort, it just starts racing, and then it stops within seconds. … It’s one of those things where it only happens once or twice a month. So they really can’t speculate what it is unless they can record something when it happens, which is kind of hard to do.”
