Adam Rubin of ESPN New York writes that Bobby Parnell will throw live batting practice session on Saturday for the first time since undergoing herniated disk surgery.

Rubin adds that Parnell has been proceeding cautiously during spring training, then had a small delay dealing with a left quadriceps injury in camp.

Hopefully Parnell is good to go without any other setbacks.

Bobby Parnell‘s next Bullpen session will be delayed due to a minor injury.

Adam Rubin of ESPN NY writes that Parnell,  injured his left quadriceps muscle covering first base during a drill on Thursday and he was not outdoors with teammates for this morning stretching.

Pitching coach Dan Warthen shared with Rubin, “Everyone thinks it’s very, very mild. He wanted to throw today.”

Rubin adds that Terry Collins said he hopes Parnell throws the bullpen session Saturday and he labeled the issue “tightness.”

Parnell was already being cautious since coming back from surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck, so now he may be delayed a bit longer.
