MIAMI -- New York Mets pitcher Bobby Parnell will not pitch again in 2010 due to a right elbow injury.

The 26-year-old right-hander underwent an MRI exam Monday that revealed an inflamed plica in his pitching elbow that will curtail his campaign.

Parnell went 0-1 with a 2.83 earned run average in 41 relief outings this season.

He is 4-9 with a 4.63 ERA in 115 big league outings, including eight starts.
