Manny Parra hasn’t been the same since a promising rookie season in 2008, struggling with control problems and injuries, and today the Brewers non-tendered him.

Parra was arbitration eligible for the third and final time after making $1.3 million in 2012 and showed some promise in a shift to the bullpen full time with 61 strikeouts in 59 innings, but he also posted a 5.06 ERA and walked 5.4 batters per nine innings.

Overall he has a 5.61 ERA in 321 innings since since 2009, but the 30-year-old left-hander should be able to find a job as a middle reliever somewhere.

    And nothing of value was lost. This guy is terrible.

      The only person who would thumb that comment down is Manny Parra himself.

    He actually has a good arm. If he could ever figure out his command he would be a great lefty starter. But that is a BIG if.
