Parra will start in center field in Thursday's game against the Cardinals.

After starting in left field Wednesday, Parra will get the start in center field Thursday in place of the injured Carlos Gomez (hamstring). It's not clear how much action Gomez will miss, but Parra figures to be the Brewers' primary center fielder for as long as Gomez is sidelined. Parra, who is just 3-for-17 (.176() on the season, will bat eighth against Cardinals starter John Lackey.

Parra will start in right field Wednesday for the second straight day.

Parra will make another start in right field in place of the injured Ryan Braun. The Brewers are hoping to get Braun back following Thursday's team off day, so Parra may return to his bench role in short order.

Parra is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

Parra will get the start in right field with Ryan Braun sidelined by a side injury, and would likely see the bulk of the starts in right field if Braun misses additional time. He will hit sixth Tuesday against Rockies starter Jordan Lyles.

Parra is 11-for-40 (.275) with a home run and nine RBI through 16 spring games.

Parra got off to a slow start this spring, but he has heated up of late, tallying all nine of his RBI over his last seven games. He is expected to share the left field duties with Khris Davis during the regular season, but he has played the position sparsely this spring, so it seems that Davis will be the primary left fielder to open the campaign. Parra still figures to see a start or two per week in left, and he is far better defensively than Parra, so he could cut into Davis' playing time at some point if Davis struggles with the bat. Parra will also start here and there in both center and right field when regulars Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun need a day off.

Parra and the Brewers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.2375 million contract Friday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.

Parra will likely open 2015 as no better than a part-time outfielder, but he will fetch a hefty salary in his final arbitration-eligible season. Parra and Khris Davis figure to share the playing time in left field for the Brewers, and Parra will also serve as the top reserve in both center field and right field.

Parra saw his third straight start Tuesday and went 1-for-4 against the Cubs.

He should be in line for significant playing time in the short term, as Carlos Gomez (wrist) is expected to miss about two weeks.

Parra went 3-for-4 with a solo home run Monday against the Cubs.

Parra hasn't been an everyday player since coming over to the Brewers and although he could have the occasional game like he did Monday, his limited playing time doesn't do his fantasy value any favors.

Parra went 2-for-4 with a pair of runs scored in a losing effort against Toronto on Wednesday.

Prior to Wednesday, Khris Davis had started 10 consecutive games, so Parra's role has primary been working off the bench as a defensive replacement and pinch-hitter in recent weeks. The former Gold Glove winner offers the Brewers with a viable insurance policy at all three outfield spots should an injury befall one of the starters currently ahead of him on the depth chart.

Parra went 1-for-4 at the plate Tuesday, while slugging his seventh home run (a solo shot of Jean Machi in the seventh inning, which proved to be the winning hit) of the year.

Tuesday's home run was Parra's first hit with the Brewers after they acquired him from the Diamondbacks on July 31. Parra is just 1-for-8 in his brief time with the Brewers, and now possesses a pedestrian .256/.303/.365 slash line in 414 at-bats this year.
