Parra is out of the lineup Sunday against the Twins.

The Brewers will go with a right-handed heavy lineup to counter southpaw Tommy Milone, resulting in Parra removal from his usual post at the top of the order. Shane Peterson will cover left field while Parra picks up some rest.

Parra got the start in center field Saturday and hit second, going 2-for-4 with his fourth stolen base of the season.

He's doing his best to shake off the fourth outfielder label he picked up in Arizona, and Parra is now slashing .288/.320/.439 on the season. Even when Carlos Gomez returns from his hip injury, expect Parra to remain a lineup regular for the Brewers.

Parra went 4-for-5 with a pair of runs scored in the Brewers' loss to St. Louis on Wednesday.

He'll play nearly every day with Khris Davis (knee) on the disabled list through at least the end of June, but Parra could also end up getting moved via trade as contending clubs may be interested in an excellent defender in the outfield capable of playing all three spots. For the season, Parra is now hitting .282/.311/.451 for the Brewers, and it's worth noting that he was slotted into the No. 2 spot in the order for Wednesday's matchup against righty John Lackey.

Parra, who is starting in left field Sunday against the Diamondbacks and batting second, should be on track for regular at-bats after Khris Davis (knee) was diagnosed with a torn meniscus and placed on the 15-day DL.

The consistent stream of starts should allow Parra to showcase himself for a number of teams as the trade deadline. Parra had previously fallen back into a fourth-outfield role following Carlos Gomez's return from the DL, but is still batting a more-than-satisfactory .285 over his 123 at-bats this season. He's not likely to provide much pop or stolen bases for fantasy owners, but those in deeper mixed leagues should take a look at him to help buoy their batting average.

Parra is out of the lineup Monday against the Giants.

Parra has worked his way into Milwaukee's starting lineup in five of the last six games, but will take a seat Monday with manager Craig Counsell using his regular outfield of Khris Davis, Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun. Following a red-hot start to the month, Parra has collected just two base hits in his last 18 at-bats, bringing his season average down to .286 (it had peaked at .314). This was likely just Parra regressing to the mean, however, as his current .361 BABIP remains a bit unsustainable. Furthermore, career-worst 24.2 percent strikeout rate is a bit concerning, but Parra should continue to see reps against tough right-handers moving forward, and will be the first option off the bench when any of the regulars need a day off.

Parra is not in the lineup Monday for the second straight day.

Parra owns a 1.209 OPS in May, but he and Khris Davis are still splitting the playing time in left field, and Davis will get the nod Monday with the Brewers employing an all-right-handed lineup against Tigers starter Kyle Lobstein. Expect Parra and Davis to continue sharing the left field duties moving forward.

Parra is out of the lineup Sunday against the Mets.

After getting back-to-back days off earlier in the week, Parra had been in the starting lineup two straight days, going 4-for-8 at the plate over that span. He'll continue to see inconsistent playing time, however, as Khris Davis will return to left field for the Sunday afternoon contest.

Parra went 3-for-4 with a home run, double, two RBI, and two runs scored in Friday's victory over the Mets.

Parra made the most of his first start since Monday, notching his second home run and 10th double of the season. While he has not played regularly since Carlos Gomez returned from the disabled list in early May, that has not affected his swing -- Parra owns an impressive .447/.462/.809 slash line in 52 plate appearances over 18 games since Apr. 25.

Parra is out of the lineup Tuesday against the White Sox.

Parra has been the beneficiary of a Milwaukee outfield that has dealt with its fair share of bumps and bruises this season, resulting in starts in five of the last seven games. He'll take a seat with left-hander Chris Sale on the mound for the White Sox, however.

Parra is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Parra had made three straight starts in center field while Carlos Gomez was dealing with a hip strain, but will take a seat Sunday with Gomez back atop the lineup. With left fielder Khris Davis currently red hot, it will be difficult for manager Craig Counsell to find Parra playing time when the outfield is at full strength. He's certainly making a case that he deserves at-bats, however, hitting safely in eight of his last nine games and collecting seven RBI over that span.
