Mon, 18 May 2015 14:49:23 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) will avoid his third Tommy John procedure. Instead, his right elbow surgery will help stabilize the medial epicondyle fracture in his elbow.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news for Parker, but he won't be fantasy-relevant for quite a while longer, and perhaps not again until the 2017 season. Stay tuned for Parker's recovery timetable after he undergoes surgery tomorrow.

It's unclear what kind of surgery he's having, but there's a good chance that he'll also miss a significant portion of the 2016 season, as well. Check back for more details on the nature of his surgery and his timetable for a return.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker likely to need surgery

Sun, 10 May 2015 11:31:46 -0700

Updating a previous report, Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) has been diagnosed with a fractured medial epicondyle in his right elbow. He sustained the injury while throwing a pitch in a rehab game for Triple-A Nashville Friday, May 8. According to trainer Nick Paparesta, Parker will be sent home and will visit several specialists before they determine the next course of action. Surgery appears to be imminent but the type of procedure Parker will need to undergo is not yet known.

Fantasy Tip: If not for this most recent setback, Parker would have been set to rejoin the A's rotation within the next two weeks. Instead, the possibility looms that he could require a third Tommy John surgery. There is currently no timetable for his return but if reconstructive elbow surgery is necessary, Parker would be sidelined until the middle of the 2016 season.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker suffers setback

Sat, 09 May 2015 05:17:56 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) left his rehab start with Triple-A Nashville in "excruciating pain" Friday, May 8. His last pitch bounced 10 feet away from the plate between home and third base, and he went down in a heap. The Athletics will wait for Parker to be evaluated by doctors before announcing a diagnosis.

Fantasy Tip: Parker is attempting to return from a second Tommy John surgery, so the injury Friday is potentially serious. Before fantasy owners jump to conclusions or make hasty roster moves, it would be wise to wait for an official announcement concerning the severity of the injury and a timeline for his return. At this point, stashing Parker is likely best left to deep mixed and AL-only leagues, though.

Athletics | Velocity up for Jarrod Parker

Mon, 04 May 2015 19:42:49 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) continues to work his way back from reconstructive elbow surgery, and manager Bob Melvin said Monday, May 4, that Parker's velocity was up and his ability to strike out batters is improving.

Fantasy Tip: Parker might be back by the end of May, although his role remains uncertain at this point. He could have a spot in the rotation, or he might work in long relief. FantasyScore players will want to avoid him until he can officially return and his role is determined.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker throws in rehab

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 19:22:35 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) worked five innings in a minor-league rehab start for Class A Stockton. He was able to throw 71 pitches. The next step is moving his rehab to Triple-A Nashville.

Fantasy Tip: The plan is for Parker to work three games for Nashville before he is expected to be re-evaluated. FantasyScore owners shouldn't bother with him until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game or two. It's uncertain if he will be plugged back into the rotation or work in a long relief role.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker schedule update

Mon, 27 Apr 2015 12:29:29 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) will pitch approximately five innings with Single-A Stockton Tuesday, April 28, and then he will make at least three starts with Triple-A Nashville.

Fantasy Tip: Parker is still at least a month away from the majors, and when he returns, FantasyScore players will want to take a wait-and-see approach with him. Parker is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery, but he was a highly regarded arm coming up with the Athletics and should be stashed in the majority of deep mixed formats.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker makes rehab start

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 07:32:56 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) allowed three runs on four hits and struck out one in 3 2/3 innings at Class A Stockton Thursday, April 23. He touched 93 mph on his last fastball.

Fantasy Tip: Parker will probably need two or three more rehab starts before returning. Parker was a bright prospect before Tommy John surgery halted his progression. He'll be a matchup play on FantasyScore in a month or two.
