BALTIMORE -- The Mets placed reliever Bobby Parnell on the disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis before Tuesday's game against the Orioles and recalled righthander Logan Verrett from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Parnell, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery, has been ineffective of late and drew boos from Mets fans at Citi Field after a pair of high-leverage flops against the Pirates last weekend.

Parnell is 1-3 with a save and a 5.59 ERA this season. He suffered two losses in the Pirates series.

Parnell allowed two earned runs and three hits without retiring a batter in Friday night's 3-2 loss. He then allowed four runs (two earned) and two hits in 2/3 innings in Sunday's 8-1 loss.

Verrett, 25, has allowed one run in 12 1/3 innings with 12 strikeouts in six games this year with the Mets. He earned his first major league save on July 5 in Los Angeles against the Dodgers.
