Mets News: Bobby Parnell still weighing his options on surgery


Mets News:


According to ESPN Reports, Mets closer Bobby Parnell (neck) saw the doctor on Monday and his status hasn't changed.

Parnell said he's still weighing the options of whether or not he will undergo surgery to repair the herniated disc in his neck. He added that he's progressing.

The closer has been on the disabled list since Aug. 6, and last pitched on July 30. He said last Wednesday that he was doing strengthening exercises while making sure that he kept pressure off his neck. He hasn't started baseball activities.

Parnell previously said he's pushing to get back this season, but he wants to make sure he doesn't compromise his future by rushing back. He also said that if he underwent surgery, it would be a four to five month rehab.

"I think there's a timeline where if I don't get to a certain point at a certain time, they'll push for it. Just a waiting game," Parnell said last week. "Do therapy every day and get stronger."
