Logan Verrett is being recalled from Triple-A to take Parnell's place on the roster.

Parnell missed all of that season and the first two months of this one after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He threw around 92 mph Saturday, a few clicks off his high velocity in 2013, but after allowing a single and recording a groundout, Parnell considered his outing a success. 

"It was good to get back out there. It sent chills up my spine. It was a good day," Parnell told ESPN.com.

Mets not concerned with relief pitcher Bobby Parnell


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"He said actually, 'Bobby pitched better than the numbers indicated,'" Collins said. "There were three or four ground balls that got through the infield that he said, 'You guys probably make those plays in the big leagues.' He was throwing 93, 94 [mph]. The catcher caught him both nights and actually said he had better stuff [Saturday] night than the night before."

Parnell is currently on the disabled list with an elbow injury, but appears to be getting close to a return.

"There's no written script they give me," Collins said. "We just have to adjust to how he comes out of it and how he feels. I just know I think he's closer."

Mets pitcher Bobby Parnell tosses scoreless inning in Double-A rehab


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Mets pitcher Bobby Parnell tossed one scoreless inning on Sunday for Double-A Binghamton as a part of his rehab assignment. Parnell allowed one hit with one strikeout and no walks in his appearance.

"I think every time I've gone out, whether it be down there or this outing here, I have improved and learned something from my outings," Parnell said to Press and Sun-Bulletin. "Every step has been a good step in the right direction. I feel like every time has been an improvement."

Parnell is currently on the 15-day DL with an elbow injury. He has thrown one inning so far this season, posting a 9.00 ERA with a walk and a strikeout.

"I was just trying to finish what we worked on down there (in St. Lucie), fastball and command getting the curveball down in the zone," Parnell said. "That was probably the hardest hit ball I've given up the whole rehab, that curveball that hung. I didn't feel like I threw it well. He hit it hard, and I haven't had that. That gives me some good feedback.

"I've got some things to work on. All in all, I was happy with everything I did. Two-seamer was working really well. It's going in the right direction."
