6/6 Parker to DL

Cubs reliever Blake Parker is going on the 60-day disabled list with a right elbow stress reaction, and Manny Corpas’ contract will be purchased from Triple-A Iowa. A stress reaction is a contusion, and it was confirmed by an MRI. He will require treatment as if it is a stress fracture. Parker can’t pick up a baseball for 30 days. He last pitched Friday against the Giants, and has appeared in four games, and has not given up a run over 4 1/3 innings. Corpas has appeared in 19 games at Iowa, and in 10 in May, he has a 2.33 ERA, giving up 11 hits and walking four over 19 1/3 innings. He’s struck out 13 in that stretch and opponents were hitting .167 against him. Right-handers were batting .161 against him this season.
