Athletics | Jarrod Parker's surgery a success

Fri, 01 Apr 2016 11:58:25 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) underwent surgery that included reconstruction of the flexor tendon and ulnar collateral ligament complex. It was considered a success.

Fantasy Tip: It's very unfortunate to see Parker once again have to go through a major operation, but at least the surgery portion is out of the way now. Parker flashed very notable potential in 2012 and 2013, when he won a combined 25 ballgames to go with respectable numbers, and he's already said he plans on pitching again. Hopefully he'll have the chance to be a factor in 2017.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker to undergo elbow surgery

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 17:37:22 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) will undergo right elbow surgery April 1, and it won't be known until that point how severe the injury is or how much time he will need to recover. The surgery will be done by Los Angeles-based physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed his previous three elbow operations.

Fantasy Tip: According to manager Bob Melvin, the 27-year-old right-hander will wait until after the surgery to decide if he will make another comeback attempt. A third Tommy John surgery isn't out of the question and he should be off your fantasy radar.

Updating a previous item, Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) should be able to pitch again after suffering a lateral elbow impingement Thursday, March 10, according to head trainer Nick Paparesta.

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 10:06:43 -0800

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session Thursday, March 3, and added a changeup for the first time. He is progressing nicely.

Fantasy Tip: You can't expect much from Parker, who has had two Tommy John surgeries and also suffered a fractured forearm last year.
