Omaha calls up former #1 pick Emilo Parades.(37.7)

Post by niles08 » Tue Feb 05, 2019 7:36 am

With the slew of injuries that hit Omaha in the past week, the team has announced today that former first round pick Emilio Parades has been called up to the BBA.

Parades was last pitching at Double-A Sioux City, about 90 miles north of Omaha, so it will be a short drive down to the Brewster club.

Parades has had a rough season in Sioux City so this call up is a pretty big surprise. He has a 8.45 ERA along with a 6.12 FIP in Sioux City and has walked 94 batters in 103 innings along with giving up 19 home runs.

“We feel that given our circumstances and losing Carson for the year that Emilio should be given an opportunity to stick in the BBA. We have always been high on his ability and potential and now more than ever is his chance to shine.” Said Omaha GM Justin Niles

Parades was once a top prospect in the BBA after being selected 8th overall in the 2034 first-year player draft but his stock has plummeted ever since and he has been unable to get past AA ball. He missed most of 2036 with a torn UCL, which one would question could be the main reason for his mis-steps so far.

Parades is expected to begin out of the bullpen and one would guess also in low pressure situations.

Sure is. His arm surgery ruined him.

Leonardo Montés has had relative success with a 1 control(and 4 movement) as well as Tornado Elizando who is probably a -2 in control with the new ratings. Both of those pitchers have elite stuff. Paredes isn't quite at that level but does have really good movement. So it will be interesting to see if it works for him.

We kind of beat Parades up in his first exposure.
