Mets | Bobby Parnell not worrying GM

Tue, 19 May 2015 15:59:38 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell's decreased velocity in the minor leagues has not been worrying general manager Sandy Alderson. Parnell allowed three runs (two earned) off four hits over one and a third innings Tuesday, May 19, in an extended spring training game. Parnell regularly threw 90-92 mph and occasionally went higher, according to Alderson. Manager Terry Collins said Parnell is also having some control issues.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell has seemed like a lock to step right back into the closer role upon his return, but the play of fill-in closer Jeurys Familia has likely changed that plan. Familia blew his first save of the season Monday, May 18, but he should retain a firm grip on the job for the foreseeable future.

Mets | Bobby Parnell continues to struggle

Tue, 19 May 2015 11:28:59 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) allowed three runs (two earned) and four hits in 1 1/3 innings in an extended spring game Tuesday, May 19.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Jeurys Familia blew his first save opportunity of the year last night, it's looking increasingly likely that Parnell has zero chance of unseating Familia as the team's closer when he's ready to return to the active roster. There's no reason to hold onto Parnell in shallow mixed formats right now.

Mets | Bobby Parnell to make rehab outing Thursday

Tue, 12 May 2015 14:37:47 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) will have another rehab outing with Class A St. Lucie (Fla.) Thursday, May 14, and then he will head to Class AAA Las Vegas to continue his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell was roughed up for three runs and was also wild in his rehab outing Monday night. He's unlikely to have a shot at the closing duties when he's healthy enough to return to the Mets' bullpen, either, as Jeurys Familia has been lights out in the ninth in 2015. If you don't have the room to continue stashing Parnell in shallow mixed leagues, don't feel bad while cutting him.

Mets | Bobby Parnell beginning rehab assignment

Mon, 11 May 2015 15:30:06 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) is beginning his rehab assignment Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: In Parnell's absence, Jeurys Familia has emerged as arguably the best closer in the league. He has 13 saves with a 1.59 ERA, a 0.65 WHIP and a 10.6 K/9. Parnell is nothing more than a speculative saves candidate at this point, and he can be dropped in shallow mixed formats.

Mets | Bobby Parnell ready for rehab game

Fri, 08 May 2015 13:18:00 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) threw a bullpen session Thursday, May 7, and he should be pitching in a rehab game soon, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell is unlikely to unseat Jeurys Familia in the closer's role once he's healthy enough to return to the active roster. Familia has been lights out as the ninth-inning stopper in Parnell's absence. If you're struggling with roster space in a shallow league, Parnell is expendable.

Mets | Bobby Parnell to throw off mound

Tue, 05 May 2015 13:31:01 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) will throw off a mound in New York in front of pitching coach Dan Warthen, in order for the team to make sure Parnell's mechanics aren't out of whack.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell's exact timetable for a return is uncertain, and the Mets have no reason to rush him back with Jeurys Familia excelling in a closer's role. When Parnell comes back, there's no guarantee he will take the job away from Familia now. However, continue to stash Parnell in a DL slot everywhere.

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 22:11:45 -0700

Mets | Bobby Parnell to resume throwing

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 15:13:05 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) is scheduled to resume throwing on flat ground Thursday, April 30. He's working his way back from Tommy John surgery last April, and his exam with Dr. David Altchek didn't show any structural damage. Parnell thinks throwing over the winter led to arm fatigue early this year. His fastball velocity has been clocked as low as 89 mph in his last rehab start, but he's confident his velocity will quickly return to the mid-90s when he's fully healthy. Parnell said he was throwing 94-95 mph in his previous rehab start.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell should continue to be stashed in a DL slot in all universes. However, Jeurys Familia has been lights out in his absence in the ninth inning, and it may not be easy for Parnell to regain the role when he's healthy.

Mets | Bobby Parnell's rehab on hold

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 13:43:27 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell's (elbow, forearm) rehab assignment has been put on hold for a week while he deals with forearm soreness, according to manager Terry Collins. Parnell was examined by Dr. David Altchek, but nothing alarming was found. His fastball velocity has been in the 89-92 mph range during his rehab outings as he recovers from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: In Parnell's absence, Jeurys Familia is a perfect 8-for-8 in save chances, and is making a case for himself to remain as the ninth-inning stopper, even when Parnell returns. You'll want to continue stashing Parnell in a DL slot in all leagues, though.

Mets | Bobby Parnell roughed up in rehab

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 15:28:35 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) was roughed up in a rehab appearance for Class-A Advanced St. Lucie, Tuesday, April 21. Parnell allowed one run off of two hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. Parnell recorded just a single strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell was working on getting a velocity reading and was mostly in the 89-92 miles per hour range, while occasionally touching 93 mph. With Parnell likely requiring a lengthy rehab stint in the minors, RP Jeurys Familia remains the top Mets' reliever to own. Familia has six saves in eight relief appearances to open the season, while striking out over 10 and a half batters per nine innings pitched.
