Mets' Collins fine with how Parnell handled Syndergaard situation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Mets reliever Bobby Parnell said he wasn't trying to embarrass starting pitcher prospect Noah Syndergaard when he threw out his lunch plate in the clubhouse Tuesday in an effort to inform the highly touted prospect he needed to be in the dugout for an intrasquad game. Third baseman David Wright also talked to Syndergaard about being in the clubhouse.

"We try to keep those things behind closed doors, but the media was there and saw it," Parnell said in a statement released by the team, per NJ.com. "But it wasn't about embarrassing anyone. Again, it goes back to creating that culture on and off the field."

Parnell said he talked with Syndergaard since the incident became public.

"It's a clubhouse issue that needed to be handled," Parnell said. "We are trying to create a winning culture around here and that what's the whole situation was about."

Mets manager Terry Collins said he has no issue with how Parnell handled the matter.

"I think it's the perfect way he dealt with it," Collins told NJ.com. "Perfect. I think Bobby did what I would do and a number of other guys would've have done. The captain made a statement and it wasn't really adhered to and Bobby said, 'Maybe he didn't hear it'."


David Wright apologizes for scolding prospect in front of media


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Mets third baseman David Wright apologized to prospect Noah Syndergaard on Wednesday for scolding him Tuesday "within earshot" of the press, according to the New York Daily News.

However, Wright was not apologetic about the message he delivered to the highly touted pitching prosect.

"I talked to Noah yesterday, that's the thing I apologized to him for not realizing that obviously I choose to do it, so it's not the media's fault by any means, but I didn't notice the media was within earshot. So that's what I apologized to Noah for," Wright said.

"Now he has to answer questions, I have to answer questions, (Mets manager) Terry (Collins) has to answer questions, that's not the way that I like to handle things. I wasn't aware of my surroundings. As far as the content of it, I think that's something that I think Noah did an excellent job understanding the situation, he was very remorseful of the situation."

On Tuesday, Wright and reliever Bobby Parnell were upset Syndergaard went into the clubhouse to eat lunch while the Mets were in the middle of an intrasquad game. Wright told Syndergaard he needed to be on the bench during the game, but Parnell went one step further by throwing out the plate of food Syndergaard was eating.

Syndergaard, who added staying in the clubhouse was "straight up" ignorance on his part, said Wright has spoken to him twice since the incident.

"He wanted to make sure I knew that Bobby (Parnell) and he were not picking on me," Syndergaard said Wednesday. "He just wanted to make it clear, they care about me, they want me to be a part of the team, they think I can contribute in the future."

Right now I just want Bobby to prepare himself to be the closer, because that's where we think he has the best fit."

Mejia underwent sports hernia surgery in early October but said he was ready to participate in baseball activities by the beginning of January. He went went 6-6 with a 3.65 ERA and 98:41 K:BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings while recording 28 saves.


Mets' Parnell wants to be ready for opener, but fine with DL stint


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Mets closer Bobby Parnell, who is coming off Tommy John surgery, expects to reclaim the closer's role once he returns from a season-opening stint on the disabled list, per ESPN.com. A team source told ESPN that Parnell might spend 2-3 weeks on the DL at the beginning of the season.

Although, while manager Terry Collins has suggested Parnell should regain the closer's role once healthy, Parnell said Collins hasn't promised that will happen. 

"The ultimate goal when I go up there is to close," Parnell said Wednesday. "Obviously I want to be there at the beginning of the year. But, more importantly, I want to be there at the end of the year.

"If they feel like missing the beginning of the year is going to help me be there at the end, and be solid at the end, and help with the playoff push, then I'm all aboard on that. ... Don't get me wrong: I want to be there opening day and be there from Day 1. Don't think that I'm trying to not get there. I guess what I'm saying is I'm OK with them holding me back because I think that's what's best for the team." 

Parnell threw off a mound Wednesday for the third time since having elbow surgery last April.

"I don't think there are any velocity check marks or anything like that," Parnell said. "I think it's just how you feel today. I spun a couple of curveballs today, which were great. That was the first time I've done that off the mound."
