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
Wilson Ramos went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in the Nationals 2-1 win over the Cubs on Monday.
Ramos hit his third home run of the season on Monday to go with a .285 average, 13 runs and 21 RBI. Health has been Ramos’s biggest hindrance so far in his career as he has appeared in more than 100 games just once since he entered the league in 2010 but that has not stopped the production as he has hit 10+ home runs three times since 2011 and boasts a per 162 average of 22 home runs and 87 RBI which would make him one of the top offensive catchers in baseball. Ramos owners should keep their fingers crossed that this is the year he plays a full season as they will likely end up with one of the top catchers in fantasy. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
