Projecting Mets’ Bullpen When Mejia Returns

Although Bobby Parnell has pitched well for the Mets since coming off the disabled list, I’m figuring Jenrry Mejia will assume to the set-up role to Jeurys Familia when he’s activated from his suspension next week. I thought the Mets would sever ties with Mejia after he was nailed for PEDs, but the erratic performance of their bullpen made that implausible. However, should the...

Parnell threw a scoreless...

Bobby Parnell Back With The Mets

The Mets announced that reliever Bobby Parnell will rejoin the Mets on Wednesday and then be activated from the DL within a few days. Parnell had a 30-day rehab clock in the minors that was set to expire, and because he has more than five years of service time in the majors,  he could have refused an assignment to the minors. He appeared in his final rehab game on Tuesday for...

Bobby Parnell‘s 30-day rehab window to return from Tommy John Surgery is up this week, notes Marc Carig of Newsday. This means he will most likely have to return to the team. However, with Parnell not yet reaching his old velocities, the Mets won’t put him back in the closer role. “You don’t know until once he gets here,” Terry Collins said. “Again, he may amp it up and...

New York Mets: success will depend on the bullpen

While it is true that the New York Mets have made strides in recent years to build up their roster through prospects, trades and free agency. However, one area that has not been addressed is the bullpen. Typically the bullpen is populated by journeymen veterans on one-year contracts, like Jon Rauch and LaTroy Hawkins, or by unproven and ineffective young arms, like Josh Edgin. In...
