|Jarrod Parker well worth adding|
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(6/14/13) With eight strong innings against the Yankees Thursday, Jarrod Parker has a 2.13 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 5.7 strikeouts per nine innings over his last six starts.
That last number is the hangup for you, isn't it? I get it. Strikeouts are a big deal. They help differentiate the exceptional from the ordinary in Fantasy. But the one way a pitcher can make up for a lack of strikeouts is with innings. Parker has pitched at least seven in five of his last six starts. If he continues to do that for a first-place team like the Athletics, he'll get some wins his way.
Hey, nobody complains about Hiroki Kuroda's production in Fantasy, and it's not like he's a strikeout-per inning guy.
I still rank Parker only 75th among starting pitchers, so I'm not saying he's a Cy Young candidate or anything. But I could probably find a spot for him on most of my teams.

(6/13/13) Athletics starting pitcher Jarrod Parker enjoyed another solid performance but did not factor in the decision Thursday afternoon against the Yankees.
Parker gave up a two-run home run to Robinson Cano in the first before settling down the rest of the way. The right-hander fired seven scoreless innings after his mistake in the opening frame. He yielded two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in eight innings pitched.
Parker has allowed just six earned runs combined over his last four starts (28 1/3 innings). He is scheduled to make his next start Tuesday at Texas. He allowed three runs in seven innings pitched in his previous meeting against the Rangers on May 22.

(6/7/13) Athletics starting pitcher Jarrod Parker pitched well Friday against the White Sox, but he needed a late rally to earn his fifth win of the season.
Parker allowed three runs -- two earned -- in seven innings of work, one in each of the third, fourth and fifth innings. He surrendered a solo home run in the third, an unearned run in the fourth, and another run in the next inning.
Parker held Chicago to five hits and two walks. Parker struck out four batters, while throwing 60 of 92 pitches for strikes.
The A's won, 4-3, on a grand slam by Josh Donaldson in the sixth inning.
Parker carries a 5-6 record and 4.68 ERA into his next start, Thursday against the Yankees.
|Jarrod Parker wins back-to-back starts|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(6/2/13) Athletics starter Jarrod Parker won back-to-back starts for the first time this season. Parker (4-6) limited the White Sox to two hits and two walks while striking out seven in six scoreless innings of a 2-0 win Sunday.
Parker has allowed two runs or fewer in three of his last four starts. He will earn another shot at the White Sox Friday at U.S. Cellular Field. The right-hander is 1-3 with a 4.18 ERA in five starts away from home.
|Jarrod Parker rolling for A's|

(5/29/13) Athletics starter Jarrod Parker had a solid performance Tuesday at home against the San Francisco Giants. Parker earned himself a victory.
The starter improved to 3-6 with a 5.40 ERA as he gave up just two earned runs on five hits and a walk over seven solid innings. He struck out four and threw 94 pitches.
Parker has now gone at least seven innings with three or fewer runs allowed in three straight starts. He had not done that in any of his previous eight outings.
The 24-year-old on a roll will make his next start Sunday against the White Sox.
|Jarrod Parker is a tough pitcher to figure out. He doesn't have an upper 90s fastball, great command or a knack for inducing grounders. There's no aspect of his game that stands out, but his results from last season were worthy of note. As one of a trio of rookies to spend significant time in the Oakland rotation last year, Parker came away with a 13-8 record, a 3.47 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. A key to Parker's above-average stats was his aversion to home runs, as he allowed only 11 of them over 181 1/3 innings. Though pitching 100 of those innings at O.co Coliseum helped, it's not likely that Parker will allow homers on just six percent of the flyballs he yielded again. The former Diamondbacks prospect does enough things well to be worth drafting in standard mixed leagues, but owners might be tempted to draft him too early based on his rookie-year results. Wait until the later rounds to grab him. (Updated 12/4/12)|
