Brewers Face Contract Decisions


MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) Today is the final day for Major League Baseball teams to offer new contracts to players on their 40-man rosters. And there’s some talk that the Milwaukee Brewers will not give a tender offer to left-handed reliever Manny Parra – who’s one of five players eligible for salary arbitration.

General manager Doug Melvin has not commented on specific players, but he says it’s possible that the Brewers might not offer a tender to someone. The 30-year-old Parra missed the entire 2011 season with an injured back and elbow. He had surgery to remove a bone spur before returning this season – and he went 2-and-3 this year in 62 appearances with a five-point-oh-six E-R-A.

Milwaukee’s other players who are eligible for salary arbitration are closer John Axford, starters Chris Narveson and Marco Estrada, and outfielder Carlos Gomez.
