Paredes went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Rockies.

Paredes is not in the lineup Monday against Arizona, Steve Gross of the Morning Call reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes will sit for the second time in four days as the Phillies go up against right-hander Shelby Miller. Paredes is a markedly better hitter against righties for his career, but he'll be replaced in right field by Peter Bourjos on Monday.

Paredes went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in the Phillies' 8-1 win over the Brewers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes has four hits in 13 at-bats since joining the Phillies. The team is looking for offense and is giving him a chance to see some playing time in right field along with Tyler Goeddel.

Paredes will draw the start in right field and bat fifth in the order Sunday against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Since acquiring Paredes on June 1, the Phillies have wasted no time deploying the switch-hitting utility player in their lineup. While Paredes offers the ability to play the infield, his easiest avenue to playing time is in the corner outfield, where the Phillies have struggled to get production all season. He's only gone 2-for-8 and has struck out five times in his previous two starts, but Paredes should have an extended opportunity to showcase his talents. Tyler Goeddel will continue to lose out on at-bats while Paredes sees regular action.

Paredes is in the lineup and batting third for Thursday's game against the Brewers Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

A day after being acquired from the Blue Jays, Paredes will receive his first start in right field in the series opener against Milwaukee. Paredes is hitting .250/.333/.500 with one home run and two RBI in eight MLB games this season.

Manager Pete Mackanin said Paredes could receive more playing time than Emmanuel Burris, the player he replaced on the Phillies' active roster, Stephen Gross of the Allentown Morning Call reports.

EDGE Analysis

Burriss was restricted to a pinch hitting role and had just 36 plate appearances in 27 games. That is a low bar for Paredes to clear. He can play in the outfield in addition to second and third base. His clearest path to playing time may be at second base if Cesar Hernandez continues his mediocre performance. For now, it seems Paredes will be limited to pinch hitting and occasional spot starts.

The Phillies have acquired Paredes from the Blue Jays for cash considerations, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays earlier this week. The Phillies can use more offense and could give Paredes a chance to earn playing time at second base or in the outfield. He hit .275/.310/.416 with 10 home runs for the Orioles last season, but has seen limited action this year since returning from a wrist injury.

Paredes was designated for assignment Monday, Sportsnet's Barry Davis reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes logged 15 at-bats over seven games with the Blue Jays, but the utility infielder will now be in search of a new home should he refuse his designation to the minors. A relatively useful piece for the Orioles in 2015, Paredes and his .257/.294/.373 career slash line should be able to catch on elsewhere in due time. Ryan Tepera was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo to take his spot on the roster.

Paredes, the middle infielder picked up off waivers from Baltimore, is expected to see most of the playing time at second base if he continues to hit, the Toronto Star reports.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday, it was Paredes, not Ryan Goins or Darwin Barney, that got the start at second base. He's only been with the team for three games, but the switch-hitting Paredes has started in two of those. The 27-year-old is 3-for-9 with a walk, double, home run, two RBI and two runs since joining the club.

Paredes got the start at third base Wednesday and went 1-for-4 with a solo homer against Tampa.

EDGE Analysis

He notched a pinch-hit single in his Toronto debut Tuesday and was rewarded with a start at third base Wednesday, but Josh Donaldson won't cede too many of those. Nonetheless, Paredes provides the Jays with a valuable bench bat and could carve out some deeper-league fantasy value if he can find his way into semi-regular playing time as a fill-in at multiple positions.
