Thursday evening, the New York Mets and right-handed reliever Bobby Parnell avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year deal worth $1.7 million for 2013. #bbpBox_292072002926280704 a { text-decoration:none; color:#0084B4; }#bbpBox_292072002926280704 a:hover { text-decoration:underline; } The Mets and Bobby Parnell have avoided arbitration and agreed to a 1 year 1.7 million dollar contract for 2013 #snymets @MattDunnSNY January 17, 2013 7:52 pm via TweetDeckReplyRetweetFavorite @SNYtv SportsNet New York Parnell, who was arbitration eligible for the first time, received a nice raise over his $500,000 salary in 2012.  His 2012 campaign was arguable the best of the right-handers young career; posting career highs in wins (5), appearances (74), saves (7), whip (1.24), and ERA (2.49).  The 28-year-old allowed 19 earned runs over 68 2/3 innings of work, while walking 20 batters and striking out 61.  Parnell finished the year strong allowing just one earned run over his last 17 appearances, spanning 17 2/3 innings:   *NOTES- Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy are the only remaining arbitration-eligible players on the Mets roster.  Both, however, have officially exchanged arbitration demands with NY.
