Mets’ Bobby Parnell Has Partially Torn MCL

The New York Mets have announced that closer Bobby Parnell has a partial tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right elbow and may need surgery.

Parnell has received a platelet-rich plasma injection and will be shut down for at least two weeks before beginning a throwing program and will then be reevaluated to see if surgery will be required.

The 29-year-old Parnell went 5-5 with a 2.16 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, a 3.67 strikeouts-to-walks ratio, and 22 saves in 50 innings pitched for the Mets last season.
