The Mets added RHP Jose Valverde to the 40-man roster, the team announced Wednesday, indicating he will be part of the Opening Day bullpen.

The team expects Bobby Parnell to be their closer, though they may limit his appearances early in the season, according to pitching coach Dan Warthen (Carig (Newsday) Mar. 26).

Valverde will likely fill in as closer on days when Parnell is not available, though Warthen acknowledged that Valverde may need time between appearances as well.
