Bobby Parnell 4 (Baron)

Parnell on 15-day DL; Murphy on paternity; Flores, Farnsworth activated

Bobby Parnell had been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 1.


Daniel Murphy was officially placed on paternity leave after the birth of his son Noah on Monday.


Wilmer Flores and Kyle Farnsworth were both added to the 25-man roster, the Mets announced.

To make room for Farnsworth on the 40-man roster, RHP Ryan Reid was outrighted off the roster.

Murphy is a pansy. 1 day off and back to work. 3 days off is absurd, unless his wife had problems. Alderson saying the bullpen needs to be better is like a fat girl telling other fat girls to lose weight. I didn't want Farnsworth 10 years ago, I sure as hell don't want him now.

It's a great feeling when your kids are born but there's no reason for a paternity leave unless there's a complication with the child or mother. Daniel Murphy hurry back

People whining about Murphy taking paternity leave are absolute morons! I doubt very much, though, that he cares how they feel.

Farnsworth has to be the absolute worst choice to bring up... I just don't get it.

How long does Paternity leave last? Also it's nice of Murph to name his first born son after the mets top prospect.

so how long until he needs season ending surgery? or will that be mishandled and delayed until the most inopportune time?

@Muhammad Khan In that profession, yes there is a reason since they're separated for 8 months out of the year. It's easy for us to say when we have to drive a couple miles to see our kids being born.

@metsblog With a name like Murphy once he gets started this will mean 2 weeks a year for the next 10

They're human beings, not robots you see on TV. He'll be back Friday, what's the big deal? There'll be 159 other games for him to play in. Relax.

@Chris Kujawa 1-3 games. I'm thinking it'll either just be the 1 since Nats have a LHP tonight or maybe he'll skip the entire 1st series with the afternoon game tomorrow and come back vs the Reds.
