Poll: Parnell or O’Day On Chopping Block?
According to NJ.com, Tim Redding got a break from his rehab in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and was invited to Miami for Sunday’s game. It’s still uncertain how long it will be before he is invited to join the team on the active roster. He is scheduled to throw his third bullpen session today and then face hitters Wednesday, with a possibility of his first game action coming a week from today.
As long as his right rotator cuff strain continues to feel better, he hopes that will lead to a promotion by the end of the month, although manager Jerry Manuel cautioned that he won’t come up until he’s able to pitch starter’s innings. That doesn’t mean he’ll be a starter – not as long as Livan Hernandez pitches like he did Saturday.
Once Tim Redding is activated, someone will have to go to make room for him. I believe the choice might come down to Bobby Parnell or Darren O’Day. Parnell has options and can easily be sent to AAA without any ramifications. O’Day however, would have to be returned to his original team, the Angels.
It looks like this decision may come next week or a short time after, so the Mets still have time to evaluate.
Who should the Mets keep on the active roster, Bobby Parnell or Darren O’Day?
