• Neither third baseman David Wright (strained right hamstring) nor closer Bobby Parnell (herniated disk in neck) has had any change in his medical status since last week, according to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson. That means that Parnell, who is eligible to return from the disabled list Thursday, will not do so at that time.
The Mets have left open the possibility that both Wright and Parnell could miss the rest of the season.
• Right-hander Jeremy Hefner had his sore right elbow examined Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York, but will not know whether the Mets will place him on the disabled list until after an examination Wednesday. The Mets optioned Hefner to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, under the assumption that they may reverse the move this week and place him on the DL.
