Professional career


Baltimore Orioles

Parrott played for the Rochester Red Wings and was the International League's Most Valuable Pitcher in 1977. He was called-up later that year by the Orioles and in three games, two starts, he gave up just one earned run.

Seattle Mariners

On December 7, 1977 he was traded by Baltimore to the Seattle Mariners for Carlos Lopez and Tommy Moore.

In 1979, Parrott won a career high 14 games for the Mariners. He also led all Seattle pitchers in wins that year.

After winning Seattle's opener in 1980, Parrott lost 16 straight to finish the season a dismal 1-16.

On March 5, 1982 he was traded by the Mariners to the Milwaukee Brewers for Thad Bosley. He never made a Major League roster after this.
