New York Mets pitcher Bobby Parnell will be out indefinitely thanks to an arm injury, but the good news for him and his ball club is that may avoid surgery, according to reports 

That is the hope for the National League team after Parnell suffered a torn medial collateral ligament injury. It looks likely that the closer will avoid going under the knife but he has still been given a plasma injection to help the healing process. 

It remains to been whether Parnell avoids surgery in the long-term, with plenty of other athletes with the same injury having to undergo surgery after trying to prevent it in the short-term.

As it currently stands, there is no return date yet for the Mets closer, which can only be bad news for the ball club. 

Parnell has been strong late in games for the Mets, so his absence will continue to be heavily missed by team from Queens. 

It's understood that the team will wait around six weeks before making a decision on whether or not he should have surgery. 

Jose Valverde will close in his absence.
