Mets pitcher Vic Black getting a week of rest for herniated disk


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2015) Mets pitcher Vic Black will be given a week off to rest the herniated disk in his neck, according to ESPN.com. Black said the injury is not allowing his triceps to fire and is affecting his velocity on the mound.

Black, who is currently on the 15-day DL with a shoulder injury, said the injury is modest and much better than it was last year. He doesn't anticipate having to undergo surgery for the herniated disk, but did feel tingling after his last rehab appearance. 

"I knew something was wrong because I know when I can step on the gas and when I'm trying and it's not working," Black said per NJ.com. "To know that it's not a shoulder issue and yet I can't get it to speed up was a concern to me."
