Pirates Interested in Manny Parra
We’ve already heard that the Pirates are interested in left-handed pitcher Manny Parra, among other recently non-tendered pitchers. Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel had an update on Twitter, pointing out that the Pirates and the Mets were both interested in Parra. As I noted last night, Parra would be an interesting option for the bullpen, but his lack of control wouldn’t make it likely that he’d find success as a starter. He doesn’t really stand out from guys like Vin Mazzaro, Zach Stewart, or Chad Beck, other than the fact that he’s left-handed.
