Parnell was recalled from Triple-A Toledo on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Since getting demoted back on June 14, Parnell has allowed just one run over nine appearances, bringing his minor league ERA down to 3.07 following some early-season struggles. He'll now head back to Detroit to provide support in middle relief.

Parnell was optioned to Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Parnell has struggled in limited action since his contract was purchased by the Tigers at the start of the month, allowing four hits and three earned runs across 3.2 innings of relief work. The 31-year-old will now head back to Triple-A, where he holds a 3.98 ERA in 20.1 innings on the season. He'll be replaced in the Detroit bullpen by Buck Farmer, who was officially recalled Tuesday in a corresponding move.

Parnell had his contract purchased Wednesday by the Tigers, Anthony Fenech reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parnell had spent the previous eight seasons with the Mets, posting a 3.78 career ERA as a reliever. However, he had a career-worst 6.38 ERA in 2015 through 24 innings of relief, leading him to sign a minor league deal with the Tigers. After putting up a 3.98 ERA in 21 appearances for Triple-A Toledo, he will now get a shot to contribute at the big league level again with Tigers' reliever Warwick Saupold being placed on the 15-day DL.

Parnell has decided to stay with the Tigers and has signed a minor league contract Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander was released by the Tigers on Monday, but will return to the club on a new contract. He'll likely act as organizational depth with the Triple-A club, but could find his way back up to the big leagues if he succeeds in the minors.

Parnell was released by the Tigers on Monday, Chris Iott of MLive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parnell was in the running for one of the last spots in Detroit's bullpen, but it appears that the Tigers were not willing to give him the position. Parnell struggled a lot last season with the Mets, but he does have a lot of major league experience which could help him latch on with another team fairly soon.

Parnell could win one of the final spots in the Detroit bullpen with Daniel Norris, Alex Wilson and Blaine Hardy all injured, the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parnell hasn't pitched well this spring as he's given up nine runs and 14 hits in 8.1 innings with a 6:8 K:BB ratio. However, he's a veteran with experience the bullpen may lack. He's battling Kyle Ryan, Bruce Rondon and Buck Farmer for the final three spots in the bullpen.

Parnell signed a one-year minor league contract with the Tigers, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Following a dreadful 2015 campaign, the best Parnell could find was a minor league contract that includes an invitation to big league camp. His velocity plummeted in the wake of 2014 Tommy John surgery, but there's some chance it could return after a full offseason of rest. Even if he makes the big league roster, Parnell is unlikely to earn a late-inning role.

Parnell (2-4) imploded again Wednesday against the Phillies, failing to record an out while adding a hit, a walk, a wild pitch and two runs to his line.

EDGE Analysis

Parnell's now averaging nearly two baserunners per inning, and he has 17 walks against just 13 strikeouts. It's enough to make you wonder why manager Terry Collins thinks he should be rolled out in any game the Mets are leading.

Parnell (arm), making his first appearance since being activated off the disabled list, walked the first two hitters he faced and then threw a bunt away, helping paving the way to the Phillies' eight-run, sixth inning Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Parnell was brought in to face the bottom of the Phils' order but failed to get the job done. He likely won't pitch in many close game situations due his continued struggles coupled with the roster expansion on September 1 giving the Mets more bullpen options.

The Mets activated Parnell (arm) from the disabled list Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parnell is set to rejoin the Mets after spending the last couple weeks on the disabled list. He figures to work in the seventh inning if healthy, but his role will ultimately depend on how effective he is over his next couple appearances.
