James R. Parr (born February 27, 1986 in Albuquerque, New Mexico) is a Minor League Baseball pitcher for the Atlanta Braves. He was drafted in the fourth round, 131st overall pick, out of La Cueva High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico by the Atlanta Braves in the 2004 MLB Draft.

On September 4, 2008, Parr made his major league debut for the Braves. Parr pitched 6 innings, allowed no runs on 2 hits, and earned his first major league victory in the Braves 2-0 win against the Washington Nationals.

Atlanta manager Bobby Cox said of his debut, "What a night he had. He's sneaky quick. He doesn't light up the radar gun, but he's got a little looping curve and a changeup. I was impressed. It's a great way to break in."
