Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) showed strong command and threw well during his bullpen session Friday, Feb. 20, according to manager Bob Melvin. Melvin noted Parker, "had a real good changeup on top of his fastball and at the end was spinning breaking balls."
Fantasy Tip: Parker and Oakland are targeting a return in June, which makes him undraftable in the majority of seasonal leagues. After two Tommy John surgeries, it is difficult to project Parker's fantasy value when he returns, too. He is worth monitoring, though, because over two seasons, he posted a 3.73 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP through 61 starts.
