Mets | Bobby Parnell says he'll be ready

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (neck) said he expects to be ready for spring training next year after having surgery on a herniated disc in his neck. The doctor who performed his surgery is calling the procedure similar to the one Denver Broncos QB Peyton Manning underwent. "The chances are pretty good. I don't know the numbers or anything, but everyone has assured me that I will (be ready for spring training)," Parnell said. "All the discomfort that I had from the pinched nerve is gone, basically. It's just soreness from the surgery now. I feel very confident that everything is going to get back to normal." The disc from his neck was removed and was replaced with a bone graft from Parnell's hip. He will have to refrain from activities for the next four to six weeks.
