NEW YORK (AP) - The Mets say closer Bobby Parnell will have Tommy John surgery and is out for the season.
Parnell blew a save on opening day against Washington and the next day it was revealed he had partially torn right elbow ligament.
The team said he received a plasma injection and the original plan was for him to rest about two weeks before starting a throwing program and then deciding whether to have surgery.
Less than a week later, the Mets announced on Sunday that Parnell would undergo ligament replacement surgery. The surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.
Parnell was 5-5 with a 2.16 ERA and 22 saves in 26 chances last year, but the hard-throwing right-hander missed the last two months because of neck surgery.
