Update: Parra likely for Thursday

Updating my post from a few hours ago, it appears that Manny Parra will return to the Brewers’ starting rotation on Thursday against the Cardinals. Manager Ken Macha wouldn’t confirm who will pitch that game, but he did lay out his rotation for the rest of the week:

Tonight vs. STL: RHP Yovani Gallardo
Wednesday vs STL: RHP Jeff Suppan
Thursday vs STL: TBA

Friday vs. LAD: RHP Braden Looper
Saturday vs. LAD: RHP Mike Burns
Sunday vs. LAD: Gallardo

And here’s my original post:

The Triple-A Nashville Sounds have juggled their probable pitchers for the week and left-hander Manny Parra isn’t on the list, a very strong indication that the Brewers will recall him to the big leagues for a start at some point this week.

The Brewers need a pitcher by Saturday at the latest, but also could slate someone in as soon as Wednesday. That just happens to be Parra’s day to pitch, had he remained on schedule in Nashville.

Brewers manager Ken Macha and general manager Doug Melvin were to meet this afternoon to set the rotation for the final homestand before the All-Star break. Macha could announce his plan when he meets with reporters just after 4 p.m. CT.

Parra was 3-7 with a 7.52 ERA in 13 starts before the Brewers demoted him to Nashville after a loss to the White Sox on June 13. In four Triple-A starts, he went 1-2 with a 2.92 ERA, including seven scoreless innings at Round Rock on Wednesday.


Maybe he is part of a deal for Halliday. (we can dream, right)

Hahahaha! Parra will be traded with JJ Hardy for Clay Buckholz from the Red Sox! That would be dreaming…..

So I guess this means we will have a loss on Thursday?
