Bobby Parnell plays catch Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Mets pitcher Bobby Parnell played catch Saturday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery, Newsday reports. Parnell had his surgery for April, and he'll begin working toward a 2015 return.

Bobby Parnell moved to 60-day DL

Bobby Parnell undergoes surgery with eye on 2015


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2014) Though he was initially considering skipping surgery and trying to rehab the torn MCL in his right elbow, Mets reliever Bobby Parnell opted to forgo a second opinion and go under the knife immediately to repair the injury.

As manager Terry Collins told MLB.com Tuesday, Parnell opted to have the surgery now so he could be healthy in time for opening day in 2015.

"He was real concerned about always waking up every day knowing he had a tear in there, and 'How long would it last?'" Mets manager Terry Collins said. "So he made the right decision."  

Parnell underwent the surgery Tuesday in New York, rather than allow the decision to be dragged out for weeks while he tried to rehab the injury. If he had opted for that course of action, there was no guarantee he would come back to full health anyways, while pushing the potential timetable for his return from surgery further back.

Bobby Parnell decides to undergo Tommy John surgery


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Mets reliever Bobby Parnell has decided to undergo Tommy John surgery, the team announced Sunday night. He'll have surgery on Tuesday.

Surgery a 50-50 proposition for Bobby Parnell


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Mets reliever Bobby Parnell won't know if he will need surgery for at least another two weeks, but the team's doctors have told him it is a distinct possibility. According to ESPN.com Thursday, Parnell has a 50-50 chance of needing surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right elbow.

Parnell hopes to make a decision sooner rather than alter, because if he needs Tommy John surgery he wants to be ready to return by the start of the 2015 season. Doctors may opt to treat the elbow with platelet-rich plasma treatment if they forgo the surgical option.  


Mets could know in six weeks if Bobby Parnell needs surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said if closer Bobby Parnell needs Tommy John surgery, then a determination will be made in six weeks.

Alderson said Parnell's MCL tear is in "somewhat different location" than Matt Harvey, who is expected to miss the 2014 season recovering from October Tommy John surgery. Alderson said Parnell's tear is in the thicker part of the ligament, so he will rest for two weeks and then start to throw.

Bobby Parnell out with incomplete tear of MCL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) After blowing a save in Monday's season opener against the Nationals, the news got worse for Mets closer Bobby Parnell on Tuesday. The Mets announced Parnell will be sidelined for at least a few weeks after an MRI revealed Parnell has an incomplete tear of the MCL in his right elbow.

Parnell was examined Tuesday morning after he complained of tightness in his right forearm following Monday's game. He received a Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injection and has been prescribed rest for approximately two weeks. He will then begin a throwing program, and the outcome will determine whether or not Parnell needs elbow surgery.

Setup man Jose Valverde will likely take over as closer for the Mets.


Jose Valverde could open season as Mets closer


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/19/2014) Mets closer Bobby Parnell still has not regained velocity on his fastball, and if he isn't ready when the season begins or has trouble early on, the team could turn to Jose Valverde as a closing option in the early-going, the New York Daily News reports.

Valverde has improved significantly after an unimpressive start to the spring, causing one rival evaluator to remark, "They may have found something here." The potential interim closer has surrendered three earned runs on just four hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out six.

"The difference between this outing and last outing was night and day," he told ESPN. "My timing was a lot better. I felt like the ball was coming out a lot better. So as the inning went on, the confidence kept growing."

Parnell, who underwent surgery last September to repair a herniated disk in his neck, was consistently throwing his fastball at 95 mph in 2013.
