The Milwaukee Brewers and arbitration-eligible left-handed pitcher Manny Parra have agreed to a one-year deal, the club announced via Twitter. Parra's representatives, CAA Sports, announced the southpaw will bring home $1.2 million in 2012 - the same salary he earned last year.
Parra missed all of the 2011 season with back issues and elbow surgery, but as Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes, the contract isn't fully guaranteed.
"Parra missed the 2011 season, first with back issues, then an ailing elbow that eventually required surgery. He is expected to be full-go by spring training, and short on lefties in their bullpen, the Brewers opted to offer Parra a contract to see what he might do. Arbitration contracts are not guaranteed, however."
The last time Manny Parra pitched at the majors, he posted a 5.02 ERA across 122 innings of work in 42 appearances (16 starts). The 29-year-old can do one thing and that's generate swing and misses from opposing batters.
