The Detroit Tigers recalled RP Bobby Parnell from Class AAA Toledo Wednesday, June 1, and placed RP Warwick Saupold (groin) on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right groin.
Fantasy Tip: Parnell is likely to work as a setup man in the late innings, but he isn't likely to sniff save chances anytime soon. His value is limited to the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues which use true middle relievers.

The New York Mets activated RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1. He allowed two walks while committing a throwing error, and he was showered with boos upon departing.
Fantasy Tip: Mets fans are not pleased with Parnell, but he is working back from major injury. He will not work in high leverage situations, so avoid him even in standard fantasy formats until he builds up his stamina.

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell was charged with the loss Wednesday, July 22, in Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Washington Nationals.

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (groin) will miss the rest of the weekend after a left groin issue surfaced on his final two pitches in the eighth inning Friday, June 19. He tested it Saturday, June 20, and has been prescribed anti-inflammatory medication but has not undergone an MRI. Familia does not believe he will land on the disabled list. RP Bobby Parnell will likely fill in at closer in the interim.
Fantasy Tip: Parnell should be picked up if you're save speculating. There's even a small chance he retains the role. However, his lengthy injury history doesn't give that theory much weight.

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell could close games temporarily with RP Jeurys Familia expected to go on the paternity list soon.
Fantasy Tip: Don't go blowing all of your FAAB money on Parnell if you're looking for saves. Familia has done nothing to lose the ninth-inning duties and will return to the role all by himself after his child is born. However, if you're desperate for saves, Parnell could be worth the very temporary pickup, just don't spend much at all.

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Thursday, June 11. Manager Terry Collins said Parnell's fastball sat at roughly 92 mph during his minor league rehab stint, down over three miles per hour from his major league career average. Over 14 innings between Class A and Class AA, Parnell allowed 22 hits and 14 walks, while hitting one batter and throwing three wild pitches.
Fantasy Tip: Parnell was expected to regain the closer's role upon his return to the majors, but his minor league struggles and Jeurys Familia's dominance in the role, will make it tough for Parnell to reclaim his former title. Parnell will be worth monitoring, but he's not a concern for owners in standard leagues at this point.
