PARRA, JOSE

Position: Pitcher

DOB: March 18, 1997

Height: 6’3″ / Weight: 180

Bats: Right / Throws: Right

40-man roster: No

How acquired: Free Agent (March 16, 2017)

Profile: Signed by the Brewers during spring training in 2017, Parra made his pro debut that same season, pitching for Milwaukee’s affiliate in the Dominican Summer League.  A right-handed hurler out of Venezuela, Parra has good size and the ability to eat innings and should add some additional velocity to his fastball as he continues to grow into his six-foot-three frame.

2017:  The Brewers inked Parra to a deal prior to the 2017 season and sent him to the Dominican Summer League to make his pro debut in 2017.  He appeared in 14 games there, starting six of them, and despite a 1-5 record, he pitched fairly well, finishing the year with a 2.60 ERA.
