Reds keep reliever Parra

The SportsXchange

The Cincinnati Reds reached agreement with left-handed reliever Manny Parra on a new two-year, $5.5 million deal, reported Wednesday

Parra finished last season with a 2-3 record and a 3.33 ERA in 47 innings for the Reds as a middle reliever.

The 31-year old Parra started his career with the Milwaukee Brewers but failed to live up to expectations because of control issues and injuries. He was moved to the bullpen from the Milwaukee rotation in 2012.

Former pitching coach and new Reds manager Bryan Price is credited with Parra's turnaround in 2013.

In six major-league seasons, Parra has a 28-36 record with a 4.98 ERA while working 559 innings.
