New York Mets closer, Bobby Parnell, may require surgery again after suffering from a partially torn ligament during the opening day game against the Washington Nationals.
Parnell complained of tightness in the right forearm (his pitching forearm) and an MRI later revealed the extent of the injury.
He'll be rested and treated for two weeks before any decisions are made regarding the surgery.
Parnell has already limped through spring training after recovering from a herniated disc and this latest setback is sure to frustrate all involved.
The Mets bullpen is running very thin after starting pitcher Matt Harvey was ruled out for the season following his surgery for a tear in his elbow last year.
Former Detroit Tigers pitcher Jose Valverde is expected to step in to fill Parnell's shoes but depending on injuries, the Mets may need to readdress their bullpen pretty quickly.
Parnell is now one of six people who are already out injure after elbow ligament issues for this year.
