MIAMI -- Bobby Parnell is aiming to get on a mound soon after Christmas for the first time since Tommy John surgery.
Parnell underwent the procedure on April 8.
He said he plans to stay in Port St. Lucie, Fla., and throw throughout the winter, rather than shut things down during the offseason.
"I had my time off," said Parnell, who is in Miami with the Mets for their series against the Marlins.
