Worth noting

Bobby Parnell described his second spring outing as a "night and day" difference from his first one. Though Parnell's velocity still lingered in the high 80s on Wednesday, he said he does not usually start lighting up radar guns until the second half of March. Parnell is recovering from surgery to remove a herniated disc from his neck and expects to be ready for Opening Day.
