Description: Manny Parra will have an MRI on his back after x-rays didn't show anything. SOURCE: TOM HAURDICOURT
Insight: He is competing for a relief job and will likely win one if he doesn't have a significant injury here. He's still unlikely to have any fantasy value.

Description: Brewers SP Manny Parra allowed 6 runs in 5 2/3 innings of work, losing to the Cubs. Parra allowed 6 hits and walked 3, though he did strike out 8.
Insight: Parra has always had a power arm, but has been unable to put it together as a SP. With Trevor Hoffman getting close to the end of his career, the Brewers could look at Parra as a closer.
 
7/20/2010 11:38:00 PM
Description: The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Parra will make his next scheduled start against Washington this week.
Insight: Parra allowed 10 runs to the Braves on Sunday in his last start, so he may have a short leash if he struggles again. (SportsBuff.com)

7/18/2010 10:40:00 PM
Description: Manny Parra allowed ten earned runs in 5 1/3 innings in Atlanta today.
Insight: With a 5.32 ERA he is an innings eater for the Brewers and nothing more. We don't recommend him in any format - the days of him having potential are long gone.
 
7/8/2010 6:54:00 PM
Description: Parra allowed six runs (four earned) on 10 hits over five innings against the Giants on Thursday.
Insight: Parra dropped to 3-6 with a 4.65 ERA on the season with Thursday's loss. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/29/2010 9:38:00 AM
Description: Parra allowed four runs on seven hits over five innings on Monday night against Houston.
Insight: Parrra has pitched well in June prior to this outing, and is now 2-5 with a 4.12 ERA this season after a no-decision. His strikeout potential makes him worth considering in NL-only leagues. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Parra allowed two runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings against Minnesota on Wednesday night.
Insight: Parra tied a franchise record with four wild pitches in the game, but is now 2-5 with a 3.83 ERA this season and has pitched well in June. His spot in the Brewers' starting rotation seems to be secure. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/7/2010 10:13:00 AM
Description: Parra allowed two runs on four hits, striking out 10, over 5.2 innings against the Cardinals on Sunday night.
Insight: Parra has made his case to stay in the Brewers' starting rotation. He has been inconsistent through his career, but he could be usable in NL-only leagues. (SportsBuff.com)
 
6/4/2010 1:14:00 AM
Description: MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports Parra will make a spot start on Sunday against St. Louis.
Insight: Parra will take the place of Dave Bush (right middle finger), who has pitched poorly this season and now sustained a blister on his finger in his last start. Parra could make case for staying in the rotation with a strong performance. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/17/2010 4:03:00 PM
Description: Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports, via Twitter, that Parra is slated to start on Tuesday against the Reds.
Insight: With Doug Davis (heart) out, the Brewers are shuffling their starting rotation some. If he pitches well, Parra could earn more than this one start. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/26/2010 12:10:00 AM
Description: Parra allowed five runs on eight hits over 3.2 innings on Thursday against the Dodgers.
Insight: Parra was outpitched by Jeff Suppan on Thursday in their battle for the fifth spot in the Brewers' starting rotation, but he is likely still the better option. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/19/2010 11:07:00 AM
Description: Parra allowed five runs over five innings against the Rangers on Thursday night.
Insight: This was Parra's worst outing of the spring, but he did strike out five while walking none. He is still a potential fantasy sleeper, but expect some inconsistency. (SportsBuff.com)
 
3/13/2010 10:16:00 PM
Description: Parra held the Rockies to one run on two hits over four innings on Saturday.
Insight: Parra appears to be locked into the Brewers' starting rotation, as long as he continues to pitch solidly this spring. (SportsBuff.com)
 
8/4/2009 8:56:00 AM

Steady7/25/2009 10:40:00 AM
Description: After a pair of solid starts, Parra got hit hard by the Braves. He allowed four runs in five innings and gave up ten hits.
Insight: Parra's season won't be a continual ascent. Perhaps the Atlanta game will be a bump in the road or a sign of future inconsistency. He had only allowed two runs in his first two starts after being recalled from the minors. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Steady7/19/2009 12:39:00 PM
Description: Parra had his second straight quality start. He limited the Reds to one run over six innings.
Insight: Parra returned to the Brewer rotation on July 9 after being banished to the minors for a month. He seems to have turned things around and has 13 K's in 13 innings with only one earned run in his two starts since returning. (SportsBuff.com)
