    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

    Left-hander Manny Parra has agreed to a two-year, $5.5 million contract with the Reds, according to Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com. Parra was once a promising young starter for the Brewers, but control problems and injuries wiped away most of that potential. He shifted to the bullpen full time in 2012 and has been pretty solid,…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

    Cincinnati Reds Photo Day

    For the second time this season Reds left-hander Sean Marshall is headed to the disabled list with shoulder problems. Last month it was tendinitis and now it’s being called a sprained shoulder, so it seems likely that Marshall will be out of action for more than the minimum 15 days. In between the injuries he…

  6. Brewers revert to thrifty form

    The Brewers’ offseason opened with speculation about a push for Josh Hamilton. 3 1/2 months later, their biggest pickup has been Tom Gorzelanny. Mark Attanasio’s Brewers won 96 games and went to the NLCS in 2011, and while the team lost Prince Fielder afterwards, it was able to bring in Aramis Ramirez as a replacement.…

  7. Reds sign Manny Parra to one-year deal

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Manny Parra, who was non-tendered by the Brewers in November, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Reds. Parra was often a mess as a starter and didn’t exactly thrive shifting to the bullpen last season with a 5.06 ERA and terrible control, but he did manage 61 strikeouts in 59 innings and has…

  10. Brewers non-tender Manny Parra

    Nov 30, 2012, 3:19 PM EST

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    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…

    While CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reported Thursday that the Brewers are “seriously considering a run” at free agent outfielder Josh Hamilton, Brewers owner Mark Attanasio said he’s more interested in addressing his team’s pitching problems. “We’ve got the No. 1 offense in the league,” Attanasio told the Journal Sentinel’s Tom Haudricourt. “We know that’s working. We…

    Shaun Marcum

    Brewers right-hander Shaun Marcum won’t face his former team Tuesday as planned. He’s been scratched from his start against the Blue Jays due to an elbow problem. “His elbow is tight, and we went to throw our bullpen the other day and it was still tight,” manager Ron Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Todd…

  13. Brewers may turn to Manny Parra as rotation replacement

    May 25, 2012, 12:46 PM EST

    Milwaukee Brewers v St. Louis Cardinals

    Milwaukee will be without Marco Estrada for at least 3-4 starts because a quadriceps strain and he was only in the rotation to begin with as an injury replacement for Chris Narveson, so the Brewers are running short on starters. Instead of dipping down into the minors for help manager Ron Roenicke indicated that he’ll…

  14. Marco Estrada expected to miss 3-4 starts for Brewers

    May 24, 2012, 12:16 PM EST

    San Francisco Giants v Milwaukee Brewers

    Marco Estrada‘s first-inning double yesterday extended the Brewers’ lead to 6-0, but the Milwaukee starter couldn’t stick around to benefit from the run support because he suffered a quadriceps injury on the play and immediately exited the game. Estrada has been diagnosed with a strained quadriceps–not a hip injury, as initially reported–and general manager Doug…

  15. Running down the rosters: Milwaukee Brewers

    With Prince Fielder‘s departure assured, the last thing the 2011 NL Central champion Brewers needed was to lose Ryan Braun for a third of the season. It’s likely to happen, though, even if his appeal is still pending. The rotation should be strong enough to keep the Brewers in the race while Braun is out,…

    Yesterday the Brewers avoided arbitration with Carlos Gomez by signing him to a one-year contract and today they did the same with Manny Parra, agreeing to a one-year deal with the left-hander after he missed all of last season with back and elbow problems. Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports that Parra will get $1.2 million,…

    Manny Parra underwent surgery yesterday to repair a small tear in the labrum of his left hip, but is expected to be fully healthy in time for spring training. Whether or not that spring training will come with the Brewers is another issue after Parra went 3-10 with a 5.02 ERA in 122 innings this…
