NEW YORK -- Sandy Alderson said Bobby Parnell should be ready for the start of spring training.

Parnell underwent surgery on Tuesday, performed by Dr. Robert Watkins in California, to repair a herniated disk.

"We expect him to be," Alderson said about Parnell's readiness for 2014.

Watkins has performed back operations on numerous star athletes, including the NFL's Peyton Manning, Rob Gronkowski and Jason Pierre-Paul.
