Parra is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Parra has been hitting the ball well as of late, getting a hit in eight of his last nine games, but he'll head to the bench for a normal rest day. Ryan Raburn will fill in for him in left field and bat sixth.

Parra went 4-for-5 with a double, four RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 28-year-old entered Sunday with just four RBI, but he doubled his output in that category with his stellar performance. The swipe was his fourth of the season, putting him on pace for 36 this season, and he could seemingly carve out some real fantasy value if he could hit with a little more consistency.

Parra is batting leadoff Monday against the Reds, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Parra typically slips into the middle of the Colorado lineup, but with usual leadoff-man Charlie Blackmon on the disabled list, it appears manager Walt Weiss is trying a few different options at leadoff. This might hurt Parra's opportunities for driving in runs, but it definitely provides a nice opportunity to score more runs now that he's hitting in front of Trevor Story, Carlos Gonzalez, and Nolan Arenado.

Parra will move to center field until Charlie Blackmon (toe) returns from the 15-day DL, Nick Groke of The Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Parra was already the starting left fielder, so this doesn't impact his fantasy value a great deal, but he will likely start every game in Blackmon's absence. The 28-year-old is hitting .250 with five doubles, four runs, and one stolen base through seven games.

Parra is not in the lineup Saturday against the Padres, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Parra is out of the lineup on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Parra has been off to a strong start in his first two games with the Rockies; however, with the lefty Patrick Corbin on the mound, Parra will start on the bench. Last year, he hit .303 against righties and just .238 against lefties. He'll make way for Ryan Raburn in left field.

Parra hit three doubles in five at-bats and scored a run in Monday's opener against Arizona.

Competitive Edge Analysis

That's a nice way to get his Rockies career started. The team's big offseason acquisition hit fifth behind Nolan Arenado, a situation that should put him in position for plenty of RBI opportunities -- except for when the guys in front of him repeatedly clear the bases with four homers, as they did Monday. It's also not unreasonable to think that Parra might ultimately move up to the two-hole, particularly if Trevor Story (who batted second Wednesday) continues to show off his power. Either way, with half his games taking place at Coors Field, he seems to be in line for a productive campaign.

Parra (heel) went 1-for-3 with a stolen base and a run scored in Monday's spring game.

Competitive Edge Analysis

He suffered a bruised heel during Saturday's exhibition, but Parra made it clear to MLB.com that it was "nothing bad," and no reason for long-term concern. Parra's stolen base Monday, his first of the spring, seemed to confirm as much.

Parra suffered a bruised heel during Saturday's spring game, Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The Rockies lifted Parra from the exhibition after six innings, but there has been nothing yet to suggest that his removal was anything more than precautionary. Still, it's best to monitor Parra until he returns to the field.

Parra could see some time in center field to rest Charlie Blackmon, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Parra has worked primarily as a corner outfielder throughout his career, but he has always been a quick enough fielder to cover center when needed. The Rockies also have Brandon Barnes, who can play center too, on the bench to cover for both Parra and Blackmon. However, from the sound of Weiss' comment, Parra to center and Barnes to left could be the plan for when Blackmon sits.
