As per multiple sources, Mets closer Bobby Parnell was diagnosed with a partial medial collateral ligament tear in his pitching elbow this morning via MRI. He is prescribed 2 weeks rest and has been injected with a platelet-rich plasma injection, as an option to expedite healing and hopefully delay a surgical route.
In the mean time I suppose Jose Valverde will get the opportunity to close and either the Mets recall Vic Black for the bullpen or recall Dice-K and move Mejia to bullpen temporarily.
Sandy Alderson will comment on the situation tomorrow.
