Parnell (elbow) will pitch for High-A St. Lucie on Thursday and then possibly move his rehab to Double-A Binghamton, ESPN New York reports.

Parnell was to already have moved up to Triple-A Las Vegas but his continued struggles with regaining his lost velocity has resulted in a longer than expected stint at St. Lucie. That velocity still has yet to return, so there is no set timeframe for how long he will pitch for the B-Mets before moving on to the 51s.

Parnell (elbow) gave up three runs (two earned) over 1.1 innings in a rehab appearance for High-A Lucie on Tuesday, ESPN New York reports.

Parnell has struggled during his rehab assignment, with his velocity a few ticks below where it sat pre-surgery, while the results haven't been any better. There's still hope he can fill a late-inning role for the Mets this season, but it's clear that Parnell still needs to iron things out in the minors.

Parnell (elbow) will throw another inning with High-A St. Lucie on Tuesday, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

Parnell allowed a run on a hit and two walks Saturday, but will look for better results in an outing Tuesday. He's struggling with his velocity at this point, and will likely remain on his rehab until he can regain his normal mid-90s fastball.

Parnell (elbow) allowed a run on one hit and walked two in an inning of work for High-A St. Lucie on Saturday. It remains to be seen when he will move to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Parnell originally was to pitch for the 51s on Sunday but he has yet to regain the velocity on his fastball, sitting at 90-91 not the usual 94-95. The Mets may opt to have him make a few more rehab outings at High- or Double-A before moving him up the ladder.

Parnell (elbow/forearm), who making his first rehab appearance since April 21 Monday, will pitch for High-A St. Lucie on Thursday and then move to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, ESPN New York reports.

Parnell likely will make several appearances with the 51s before he is activated off the disabled list. His velocity, which sat around 90-92 mph topping out at 95-96, needs to get back in the mid-90s. In addition, his command and control were off Monday, meaning he has two others areas needing work.

Parnell (elbow/forearm), making his first rehab appearance since April 21, allowed three runs on two hits, a walk and two wild pitches in one inning of work Monday, ESPN New York reports.

Parnell's fastball sat in the 90-92 mph range, topping out around 95-96. His command and control was off, likely from the extended absence. Parnell will need several more outings before he would be ready to be activated and rejoin the Mets.

Parnell (elbow) is expected to pitch in a game situation soon, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

Parnell resumed throwing last Thursday, after he was shut down for about one week due to soreness in his forearm. It's unclear whether he'll head out on another official rehab assignment, as it's possible the Mets could just use extended spring training to get him ready. Parnell may be ready to rejoin the team in mid-to-late May.

Parnell (elbow) will resume throwing Thursday, and hope not to miss much time beyond the original timetable before the setback, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

Parnell was shut down for a week due to forearm soreness, but appears to finally be getting back on track. Given Jeurys Familia' ability to excel in the closer role thus far, it seems less likely that Parnell will receive his closer role back as it initially appeared. He still remains without a definite timetable, but mid-to-late May or early June appears to be the expected range at this point.

Parnell (elbow) has been shut down for a week with forearm soreness, The Record's Matt Ehalt reports.

Forearm soreness for a pitcher returning from Tommy John surgery is not ideal, obviously, and given Jeurys Familia's excellence in the closer role to start the season, owners stashing Parnell in leagues with shallow benches may want to rethink that move. We already know he won't immediately reclaim the closer role when he returns, and this setback suggests that may not be until late-May or early-June. His velocity had not been there and his curveball lacked its typical sharpness during rehab outings. He is without a timetable to return.
