Manny Parra about to be up

Postby brewcrew4you » Mon Jul 16, 2007 12:36 pm

Doesn't look like he'll be here all that long, but a good pickup in dynasty leagues.

So they're just going to use him for long relief?

Probably, you would have to think that Gallardo would get Sheets' starts if he can't go.

where does parra rank among some of the young arms already called up this year and talked about?

guys like lincecum, hughes, gallardo, andrew millers. even some that havent been called up like adam miller of the indians, buccholz of the redsox. how does parra stack up to some of these pitchers? thanks in advance for your insight
ummm lets go angels? :)

parra is a 6'3" lefty, he's the brewers 3rd best pitching prospect after gallardo and will inman. he's definately highly regarded, and is one of the more promising pitching prospects in baseball. Here is his bio from brewerfan.net

Parra has a scary combination of abilities. He's left-handed and can throw his fastball in the middle 90's when he has to. Can place pitches and throw the ball inside, middle and outside at will. Fastball is best pitch right now and is a pure power strikeout pitch against right or lefthanded batters. Can throw also cutter that is esoecially tough on right-handed batters. Curveball and changeup are both in need of work, but both secondary pitches project to be above average. Big, muscular, athletic frame. Should be a workhorse. Biggest asset is his brain. Does not get flustered on the mound and will be able to fool hitters as he becomes more advanced.

wonder if this guy will fall under the radar then :-?

play in a pretty competitive 12 team dynasty. i have a high waiver but im waiting on the rookie pitcher from the Red Sox to get the call later in the year(hopefully, Buccholz).

Parra pitched in his first ML game in relief tonight. In an inning and a third, he looked AWESOME. He struck out 3 of the 4 batters he faced, throwing a total of 15 pitches (13 for strikes.) ;-D
