Bobby Parnell is heading back to the bullpen for the rest of the season, according to Jerry Manuel.
Parnell, who was long slated for Winter Ball as a starting pitcher, will still start in the off-season.
This is so strange. The season is in the tank and Parnell is going to start anyway, why not let him pitch? Sure, he might give you only four innings or so as a starter, but that’s four innings that he won’t normally get.
That is, unless, he’ll be slated for lots of innings out of the bullpen. We’ll just have to wait and see.
