Mets place reliever Bobby Parnell on the 15-day DL

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, the Mets are placing reliever Bobby Parnell on the 15-day disabled list and will call up Logan Verrett.

Puma also states that the Mets gave Parnell three options: get a designated assignment, go to Triple-A Vegas, or be placed on the DL.

Parnell is being placed on the disabled two months after completing his comeback from Tommy John elbow surgery. Initially, he had great success, posting a 0.73 ERA in his first 13 games back from surgery, but he’s allowed 13 runs in his last 10 outings to see his ERA rise to 5.59 overall.

Parnell is scheduled to be a free agent after this season. It’s safe to say that unless he makes it back from the DL for some September action this likely signals the end of his time with the Mets after a decade in the organization.
