WASHINGTON -- Jonathon Niese will wait until Wednesday to throw a bullpen session at Nationals Park, which is the standard three days before his next scheduled start.

Niese missed his last turn with shoulder tendinitis. He is due to play catch today.

The Mets intend to have Niese reenter the rotation Saturday against the Miami Marlins at Citi Field, assuming he gets through Wednesday's activity OK.
