    Mets RP Bobby Parnell feels 'chills' upon return to majors

    Mets reliever Bobby Parnell faced two batters in Saturday's loss to the Braves, representing a huge step for the picher, who hadn't appeared in a game since March 31, 2014. Parnell missed all of that season and the first two months of this one after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He threw around 92 mph Saturday, a few clicks off his high velocity in 2013, but after allowing a single and recording a groundout, Parnell considered his outing a success. "It was good to get back out there. It sent chills up my spine. It was a good day," Parnell told ESPN.com. "I've still got some work to do. On a personal level, that was a good day for me. ... I just wanted to be aggressive."
