Mets Considered Trading Parnell Yesterday

ESPN's Adam Rubin reports that the Mets were mulling over the idea of trading Bobby Parnell to an unknown team for a starting position player.

The Mets drastically revamped their bullpen on Tuesday, signing Jon Rauch and Frank Francisco to handle the eighth and ninth innings, respectively, and also landing Ramon Ramirez in a trade with the Giants, so they've got the depth to make it work. Parnell though, as Rubin points out, is controllable for four more years, while Ramirez and Rauch are free agents following 2012.

It's not surprising to see other teams interested in the flamethrowing 27-year-old, though. Parnell's average fastball sat at a blistering 97.2mph last season, and he posted a 3.64 ERA, 9.7 K/9, 4.1 BB/9, and 50.6% groundball rate in 59 1/3 innings.
