Bobby Parnell will undergo surgery on Tuesday at the Hospital for Special Surgery. Mets Medical Director Dr. David Altchek will perform the procedure.
Parnell will obviously be out for all of 2014 and could miss a fair amount of the first half of the 2015 season as well. Jose Valverde is closing for the Mets for the time being with Kyle Farnsworth backing him up, but don't forget about Vic Black who, if he fixes his command issues in the minors early on, could be back up in the majors soon and might be a dark horse candidate for saves in the second half.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Hector Sanchez left Thursday's game after taking a foul tip to the neck.
We should get a better idea on Friday if this injury is serious or not, but even a brief absence could set Sanchez back in his roster battle with Andrew Susac. Susac is younger, and a better hitter and he could be useful in NL-only or if the Giants decide to play Buster Posey more at first base. Sanchez will never have much fantasy value regardless of role though he would probably be better for San Francisco's pitchers. Analysis: Steve Pimental
Ross Ohlendorf left Thursday's game with tightness in his right groin.
This isn't good news for Ohlendorf, especially after he's pitched so well this spring. Given his success, it seems as though the only way that he will be left off of the Rangers' Opening Day roster is if he is out for an extended period of time or has a setback. He will likely fill a long reliever role for Texas with the chance to make an occasional spot start. Analysis: David Kerr
