News: 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.
Impact: 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.

News: 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.
Impact: 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.

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