Parra is out of the lineup Friday against the Nationals, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

With lefty Gio Gonzalez due up for Washington, Parra will head to the bench after making his first career start at first base Wednesday. Parra actually has a reverse platoon split this season but he will likely continue to be shielded heavily from left-handed pitching. He may play primarily at first against right-handers with David Dahl showing he's deserving of a spot in the everyday lineup.

Parra is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Charlie Blackmon's return from a toe injury Tuesday will move David Dahl over to left and bump Parra back to the bench. Parra has had some difficulty regaining his comfort level at the plate since returning from the DL, slashing .196/.211/.268 with 11 strikeouts in his last 56 at-bats. David Dahl's rapid ascension up the depth chart may make it difficult for Parra to get regular at-bats down the stretch, especially if he continues to struggle.

Parra went 2-for-5 with a triple, a double, four RBI and a run scored to help the Rockies to a 12-10 win over the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Parra did all his damage early, tagging Nationals starter Stephen Strasburg for the pair of extra-base hits in the first and second innings before Strasburg was removed after just 1.2 innings of work. Parra has been in a bit of a funk of late, hitting just .224 over his last 15 games. The Rockies' outfielder has had a mediocre season overall, hitting .259 with five home runs, 35 runs scored and 32 RBI. Perhaps the big night off against one of the league's best pitchers will help Parra, a career .275 hitter, turn things around.

Parra (ankle) is expected to begin his rehab assignment in the coming week, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Parra's departure for a rehab assignment is contingent upon passing further tests on his ankle. Recent progress gives the team reason to believe his rehab is going as planned, but there is no definite timetable mapping out his return at this point.

EDGE Analysis

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.
