Parnell to join Mets

June, 20, 2010
Jenrry Mejia's demotion is Bobby Parnell's gain.

Parnell is due to join the Mets for Tuesday's series opener against the Detroit Tigers, the Mets have confirmed.

The 25-year-old right-hander pitched a scoreless relief inning Sunday for Triple-A Buffalo. He is 1-1 with a 4.14 ERA and four saves in 41 1/3 innings spanning 24 appearances with the Bisons.

Parnell set a franchise rookie record last season by making 68 appearances with the Mets last season. He was 4-8 with a 5.30 ERA, although his ERA was skewed by a handful of bad starts among the eight he made in 2009.
