“I might not have been very sharp," Parker said, via the Bay Area News Group. "My delivery was probably quick, but I was healthy enough to catch up and be where I wanted to be.”

Parker threw 56 pitches in 3 2/3 innings at Class A Stockton on Thursday. Coming off of Tommy John surgery, Parker is looking forward to being 100 percent again. 

“Going through it for a second time, it’s not a cake walk, but you’re a little more comfortable with it,” Parker said. “We’re already a year out and everything has gone the way we wanted to go.”

Athletics pitcher Jarrod Parker tosses simulated game Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Athletics pitcher Jarrod Parker was able to throw a simulated game Tuesday as a part of his rehab from Tommy John surgery, according to Bay Area News Group.

Parker, who is on the 15-day disabled list, but not expect to return until July, has thrown multiple bullpen sessions and simulated games. He is expected to begin the year with an extended spring training.

Manager Bob Melvin liked what he saw from Parker Tuesday and said he will not push him to get back on the field before he's ready.

"He looked how he has the last couple times out," Melvin said. "If you didn't know the difference, you would think he was pitching in a real game."

Parker has treated these simulated scenarios just as though they are real games.

"To move my fastball around, whether it's up or down, I just want to be aggressive with it," he said. "You can get away with a lot more being aggressive and committing to pitches and having that conviction and that mindset."

After undergoing Tommy John surgery last spring, Parker will be extended to three 15-pitch innings in another simulated game on Monday.

"Can't really look too far ahead in this process," said Parker. "There's not a day this past year that I haven't wanted to be out there, and I think that's what makes me do what I've been doing and put in the work."

Parker is still targeting a June 1 return date.
