Mets | Bobby Parnell could return in May

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 10:56:41 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) is unlikely to return in April, and he's hoping to be back sometime in May, although he's not setting that in stone.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets have said that Parnell is expected to be handed the closer's role back when he's ready to return, so that makes him worth drafting with a late-round pick and stashing in a DL spot. Jenrry Mejia is the favorite to see most of the save chances until then, and he's also a late-round closer option, preferably handcuffed with Parnell.

Mets | Bobby Parnell's velocity down

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 10:13:52 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) has not returned to the velocity he had pre-Tommy John surgery, and he is more than 11 months removed from the procedure. He was around 90 mph with his fastball during his outing in a minor league game, and he topped out at 92 mph.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell will open the season on the disabled list, but it's expected that he'll regain the closer's job when he's ready to return. Snatch him up as a late-round pick in mixed leagues. Pairing him with Jenrry Mejia would be ideal.

Mets | Bobby Parnell set to pitch Friday

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 13:23:16 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) will pitch in a minor league game Friday, March 20.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell is penciled in as the closer role when he returns, but he may not be ready when the regular season starts. In his absence, expect Jenrry Mejia to handle the ninth-inning duties. Mejia has fleeting value in deep formats, but there is also no guarantee Parnell returns and sticks in the role, either. Parnell is worth selecting as one of the last closers off the board in drafts.

Mets | Bobby Parnell to pitch in game

Mon, 16 Mar 2015 14:36:35 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) is scheduled to pitch in a minor league game Tuesday, March 16, in the next step of his recovery from Tommy John surgery, according to manager Terry Collins. Parnell hasn't pitched in a game since opening day of 2014.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown if Parnell will be ready to go on opening day. If he doesn't, Jenrry Mejia is expected to see the majority of save chances in his absence. The Mets have indicated that Parnell will be given the closer's job back when he's ready, though, which still makes him worth drafting for saves. However, owning Mejia as a handcuff to Parnell makes sense.

Mets | Bobby Parnell injures hamstring

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 13:22:19 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (hamstring) injured his left hamstring during pitcher's fielding practice Tuesday, March 10. He is expected to be ready to pitch in a few days.

Fantasy Tip: The real concern surrounding Parnell is his recovery from Tommy John surgery, as this hamstring issue is considered minor. Parnell is already expected to start the season on the disabled list, so any additional setbacks hinder his fantasy stock. Still, he is expected to return to the closer role when healthy, so he is a worthy target as the final closers are coming off the board on draft day. Jenrry Mejia is worth a late-round flier for saves to start the year.

Mets | Bobby Parnell faces hitters

Thu, 26 Feb 2015 11:28:22 -0800

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) faced hitters for the first time since having Tommy John surgery last April Thursday, Feb. 26, and he viewed the workout as a positive, even though the hitters were just tracking pitches. "He's going to be a piece we're going to have to have. Like I said to him, 'You've got to still take it slow.' Hopefully by the end of spring training he gets into a couple of games," manager Terry Collins said.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Parnell will start the year on the disabled list, he's still worth a fantasy baseball selection for saves, since he's expected to jump right back into the closer role when he's ready. Jenrry Mejia is worth a late-round flier for saves to start the year.

Mets | Bobby Parnell to be ready immediately?

Wed, 18 Feb 2015 10:33:25 -0800

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) hasn't been promised anything by manager Terry Collins, but Parnell expects to return to the closer's role immediately after being activated from the disabled list. Parnell doesn't expect to need to be eased back into the role when he returns. A team source estimated Parnell would need two or three weeks on the DL to start the year. He threw off a mound for the third time since his surgery Wednesday, Feb. 18, but it wasn't at full speed. Parnell is a couple days behind the other pitchers in camp, and he's scheduled to throw again Sunday, Feb. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Whether Collins hands the job back to Parnell immediately remains to be seen. Regardless, Parnell should be drafted and stashed. Jenrry Mejia, who is expected to open the season as the team's closer, should also be owned for early-season saves. And who knows, maybe Mejia is pitching so well that Collins sticks with him for a while longer after Parnell returns.

Mets | Bobby Parnell to open on DL

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 11:14:46 -0800

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) is scheduled to open the season on the disabled list as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. A source thinks that Parnell's absence could be lengthy, too. "I would think two to three weeks," said the source about the absence from opening day, while cautioning that time frame is far from certain.

Fantasy Tip: Despite opening on the DL, Parnell deserves to be drafted in standard 12-team mixed leagues, because the Mets are expected to give him every opportunity to take the closing job back when he's healthy. Also, recovery from Tommy John surgery is less hampering on relievers than it is on starters. Jenrry Mejia is expected to close to begin the season, which makes him a late-round target for saves at least to open the year.
