Parnell Expected To Throw Bullpen Today

ESPN's Adam Rubin reported this morning that Mets' closer Bobby Parnell will throw his first bullpen session since Tuesday.

Parnell was originally scheduled to throw a bullpen on Thursday, but instead requested an extra day of rest from Dan Warthen, which he was granted.  Despite not throwing that day, he did run infield drills during which he slightly injured his quad.  That injury prevented him from throwing his rescheduled bullpen session yesterday.

If he does indeed throw today, something he will need to be cleared by doctors to do, it will ensure that the quad injury was minimal, as indicated.  Parnell has been slated by the Mets to make his first in-game appearance on March 9th and to make a total of nine spring appearances before camp breaks.  It remains unclear if this delay alters that timeline.
