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 making progress

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 18:35:21 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) threw two sets of 15 pitches in a simulated game Tuesday, April 7. He threw mostly fastballs and changeups. He is scheduled to throw a three-inning set Monday, April 13, at the team's minor-league facility in Arizona.

Fantasy Tip: Parker, who is returning from Tommy John surgery, is expected to return sometime in June, so FantasyScore owners can forget about him until then as the team will not rush him back. He could possibly work from the bullpen rather than work in the rotation, so FantasyScore owners would then forget about him completely.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker tosses simulated game

Wed, 18 Mar 2015 13:02:10 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) threw 30 pitches in a simulated game Wednesday, March 18. The session was broken up into two sets of 15 pitches to simulate an inning break. Parker is returning from his second Tommy John surgery, and he is feeling great and is a little ahead of schedule.

Fantasy Tip: Parker is working towards a return after missing all of the 2014 season, and there is a legitimate chance he'll pitch out of the bullpen. At this point, he is speculative-stash candidate in deep AL-only leagues, but in the majority of formats, he shouldn't be owned. Still, it wasn't long ago Parker was considered a future ace and impact fantasy arm, so keep tabs on his progression over the next few weeks.

Athletics | Jarrod Parker faces live hitting

Sat, 14 Mar 2015 15:00:23 -0700

Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) threw 20 pitches while facing minor league hitters Friday, March 13. He threw a combination of exclusively fastballs and curveballs, although he warmed up by throwing changeups. Parker was working on a smooth delivery while throwing at 90 percent effort level.

Fantasy Tip: Parker's next session facing live hitters will be Wednesday, March 18, but he is not expected to return to action until June. Although he won't be drafted in most leagues, he should be monitored based on his 3.73 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 61 career starts for the A's.
