QUICK HIT: Parra to be Replaced by…..Parra?
Milwaukee Brewers manager Ken Macha was noncommittal when asked about who would replace departed right-hander Manny Parra in the starting rotation. Macha noted that, because of off days, the Brewers wouldn’t be in need of a fifth starting pitcher until the end of the month. While Chris Narveson was called up from Nashville to replace Parra, Macha left the impression that he intends to use him out of the bullpen. So while it’s a prospect that many Brewer fans will find distasteful, it’s conceivable that, if Parra can “find” himself pitching in the minors, he could return to the rotation by the time the team is again in need of a pitcher for that role.
