Oakland Athletics SP Jarrod Parker (elbow) will undergo his second Tommy John surgery March 25, and he'll likely miss the rest of the season.

Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin acknowledged that SPs Jarrod Parker (forearm) and A.J. Griffin (elbow) are in jeopardy of starting the season on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Avoiding Parker and Griffin in your drafts might be the smart thing to do right now, until we know more about their injuries. Chavez and Milone are flier picks in cavernous mixed leagues and AL drafts.
