Melvin said Parker will throw a bullpen ahead of his next outing, which could potentially be a Minor League game.

The righty has been targeting June 1 as a return date to the A's rotation. A.J. Griffin, also on the comeback trail from Tommy John surgery, is also expected to be cleared at some point during that month.
