For now Bobby Parnell is trying the rest-and-rehab route, but the Mets closer told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that doctors have told him it’s “50-50″ that he’ll eventually require Tommy John surgery to repair a torn elbow ligament.

General manager Sandy Alderson indicated that Parnell would wait six weeks to make a decision regarding surgery, but the right-hander said he’d rather decide in two weeks because if he does need to go under the knife he’d like to do it early enough to potentially be available in early 2015.
