Mets | Bobby Parnell to remain closer

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell will remain the team's closer when RP Frank Francisco (elbow) returns, according to manager Terry Collins. However, Parnell will remain closer at least until Francisco gets into some major league games and gets back in the swing of things.

Fantasy Tip: It looks as though Collins is leaving the door open for Francisco to eventually pitch his way back into the closer's role if he can regain some confidence. After all, the Mets are paying him closer money. However, that might take some time, and it'll depend on Parnell's performance, as well. For now, Francisco should only be considered in NL-only leagues and those desperate enough to speculate in mixed formats.
