Mets closer Parnell is shut down for week with sore forearm
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday that team medical director Dr. David Altchek found nothing wrong with the right-hander's surgically repaired pitching elbow.
Parnell already has been idle two day and will not throw for five more days before being reevaluated, Alderson said before the NL East-leading Mets played the Yankees in a Subway Series opener.
Parnell had reconstructive elbow surgery last April. He was on an injury rehabilitation assignment with Class A St. Lucie.
