Parra Undergoes Hip Surgery

By on October 22, 2010

According to the Associated Press, Manny Parra underwent surgery on Thursday to treat a partially torn labrum in his hip. Parra will rehab at his home in California and should be ready by spring training.

Parra’s season was a disappointment again. Despite showing promise in his first month as a starter, he returned to his form of allowing tons and tons of hits (and therefore runs) despite still showing solid peripheral runs. He was basically the definition of a replacement level starter in 2010, but he did show some promise in the bullpen. As a reliever, Parra had a 2.39 ERA with 41 Ks, 15 BBs, and 2 HRs in 37.2 innings. Those numbers are fantastic, and if he can maintain anything resembling that kind of performance next year, Parra can be a big part of the Brewers’ bullpen. Hopefully his recovery is swift and the offseason work can begin as soon as possible.
