24-year old righty starting pitcher Jarrod Parker had a solid year in 2012 as a rookie, but he had a rough time in April. He appears to be back on the right track now. Since May 1st, Parker has started 7 games in which he is 4-2 with a 2.96 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. Parker has now pitched in 13 games (all starts) so far this year for the A’s and he is 5-6 with a 4.68 ERA and a 1.40 WHIP. The A’s need Parker to keep up the good work moving forward.
