From staff reports
The New York Mets activated relief pitcher Bobby Parnell (East Rowan) on Monday.
Parnell has been out of action for a while. He was placed on the DL with a blood clot in a finger, and then was on a rehab assignment with Triple A Buffalo after that.
Parnell took the roster spot of shortstop Jose Reyes, who was placed on the bereavement list Monday afternoon after he learned of the death of his grandmother in the Dominican Republic.
