NEW YORK -- Terry Collins said closer Bobby Parnell remains unavailable with a neck issue Saturday, a day after being prescribed medication to try to relax the muscles.

David Aardsma suffered a blown save Friday in his first chance in Parnell's role. Collins said he was unsure which reliever he would use Saturday if a closing opportunity presented itself.

Parnell last appeared in a game Tuesday.
