BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2010 Swingman James Parr throws strikes and throws fairly hard, but he has yet to find a dependable second pitch, and lost time to elbow woes.
2009 Parr kicked off his major league career last September with a pair of six-inning starts in which he didnít allow a run; he then allowed 13 tallies in his last 10 1/3 frames on the year. A mid-sized righty with weak stuff who relies on a deceptive delivery, Parr received his promotion largely due to the Bravesí desperation, and heís unlikely to mature into much more than a utility pitcher.
