Opening Day starter Jarrod Parker is likely to miss the start of the season because of a forearm injury; Parker will visit orthopedist Dr. James Andrews in Alabama on Monday. And A.J. Griffin, the team’s No. 4 starter, will see Dr. Doug Freedberg in Scottsdale today because of elbow discomfort.
Both Oakland and Atlanta now have two potential new surgeries as well.
I have a hard time chalking up that many injuries to luck.
Parker was drafted out of high school but he spent 3 seasons in the Arizona system so probably came pre-broken. Who knows. I'm trying to think of the other broken pitchers right now and am drawing a blank.
It's seems that the A's treat starters as fungible assets with some sort of endless supply only they seem to be able to access.

I'll have to get Francesa to splain that to me
