O’s demote Parrish

August 31, 2000


— The Baltimore Orioles optioned slumping rookie left-hander John Parrish to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday night and activated reliever Alan Mills off the 15-day disabled list.

Parrish (2-3) started off well with the Orioles after being recalled from Rochester on July 24, but was shelled in his last two starts.

Coming off a loss to Chicago in which he walked five and gave five runs in 12/3 innings, Parrish was touched for six runs in 21/3 innings Tuesday in a 12-2 loss to Detroit.
