Parra (ankle) ran the bases Thursday and took part in fielding drills Friday, signaling that a rehab assignment may begin soon, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra has been on the disabled list for a bit over a month now due to this high ankle sprain, but it seems that there's finally a light at the end of the tunnel for his recovery. There's no firm plan for a rehab assignment as of now, although that could become clearer soon as he ramps up his activity further. The veteran outfielder is still on track for a late-July return.

Parra (ankle) will likely need a lengthier rehab assignment which will keep his return date several weeks away, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra stated that he's feeling "much, much better," but the outfielder did concede that he still does feel some pain in his ankle. High ankle sprains are typically fairly difficult to heal, and it seems as if the Rockies are willing to take caution and let it completely heal before bringing him back into action. No official timetable for his return exists, but this development likely moves Parra's return date to sometime in late July.

Parra (ankle) won't return to the Rockies lineup until after the all-star break, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra has progressed to hitting a bit in the batting cage and running in a limited capacity, but the Rockies don't want to rush the veteran outfielder back into action and will instead let him heal his ankle over the all-star break. With this added time to recover, the 29-year-old now seems to be in line for a mid-July return.

Parra (ankle) hit off of a tee Tuesday without his walking boot on, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's good to see that Parra made it through the hitting session without his boot on, although the outfielder does admit that his ankle is still a bit tight. He's expected to wear the boot until Thursday, when he'll be able to take it off for good. As long as he can stick to this schedule, he should be able to do more involved batting drills over the weekend.

Parra (ankle) will be placed on the 15-day DL on Wednesday, and will spend time wearing a walking boot on his left foot, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra suffered the injury during Tuesday's game against the Yankees when he collided with shortstop Trevor Story in the third inning of the contest. He was forced to leave the game, and exited on a stretcher while being carted off the diamond. The left ankle sprain will sideline Parra until at least the beginning of July, and the Rockies will place Ryan Raburn in left field for the short-term future while he is out.

Parra (ankle) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Yankees, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Parra will miss Wednesday's game after spraining his left ankle Tuesday night. The outfielder is set for an MRI later in the day, after which a firmer timetable should be available. The Rockies will go with an outfield of Charlie Blackmon (center), Carlos Gonzalez (right), and Ryan Raburn (left) on Wednesday.

Parra (ankle) will undergo an MRI on Wednesday, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The initial diagnosis was a left ankle sprain, and Parra was expected to miss a few games. However, if the MRI reveals something worse, a DL trip could be a possibility. In the meantime, Ryan Rayburn will replace Parra in the lineup.

Parra suffered a left ankle sprain in Tuesday's game, according to manager Walt Weiss, the Denver Post's Patrick Saunders reports.

EDGE Analysis

The injury appeared to be much worse, as Parra was carted off the field Tuesday after colliding with shortstop Trevor Story. He will be re-evaluated Wednesday, and it would not be surprising if he missed at least several games. The Rockies are only carrying four outfielders on the active roster, so barring a roster move, Ryan Raburn figures to play every day while Parra is out.
