Bobby Parnell has been experiencing numbness in the middle finger of his right hand and the Mets placed him on the disabled list, with the reliever scheduled to undergo further testing on the injury.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com there’s speculation that the problem may have to do with blood clotting, which “may be treatable with aspirin.”

For now the official diagnosis is a “circulatory problem.”

Parnell has allowed five runs in 7.1 innings as Francisco Rodriguez‘s setup man, but did manage 11 strikeouts while averaging 95.6 miles per hour with his fastball.

    The blood clot issue is what Reyes went through several years back.

    The Mets make ME need aspirin.

    I guess there are a lot of Mutts fans who need to go on the DL with numbness this season.

      Sad but true.
