Paredes has elected free agency.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes was outrighted off the Phillies' roster last week. He hit .222/.253/.367 with five home runs in 158 at-bats between the Blue Jays and the Phillies this past season. He'll likely have to settle for a minor league contract with a spring training invitation this offseason.

Paredes was outrighted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

After being claimed off waivers by Philadelphia, Paredes could only muster a .222 batting average over 150 plate appearances, leaving the Phillies no choice but to cast him off the 40-man roster as they develop their younger alternatives. Paredes does have a history of solid contributions as a designated hitter and has some defensive versatility, so there's a decent chance that he could find his way back to the majors in some capacity in 2017.

Paredes will start in left field and bat second in the order Sunday against the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

With Roman Quinn (oblique) shut down for the final few games of the season, Paredes has picked up three starts in a row in left field, but it's unlikely to mean much for his long-term outlook with the Phillies organization. Across 163 plate appearances with the Blue Jays and Phillies this season, Paredes has slashed a middling .226/.259/.374.

Paredes hit a game-winning, pinch-hit single in the 13th inning Friday versus the Marlins, sending the Phillies home as 4-3 winners.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes was able to plate Peter Bourjos with one out in the 13th with his run-scoring single, only his 18th RBI of the season. The 27-year-old is slashing .228/.258/.386 overall during his stints with the Blue Jays and Phillies in 2016.

Paredes went 3-for-4 with a double, a homer and three RBI in a 7-6 victory over the Rockies on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes got the start in left field Sunday and has now started in two of the Phillies' last four games. He may have earned a little more playing time with Sunday's performance, but he is still going to be in a timeshare with Peter Bourjos, Aaron Altherr and Tyler Goeddel in the corner outfield spots. Altherr and Bourjos are expected to see the majority of the playing time.

The Phillies optioned Cody Asche to Triple-A, meaning Paredes spot on the roster is safe for now, Matt Gelb of the Philly Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes is struggling in his short stint this year with the Phillies, hitting just .200 with three home runs and nine RBI in 95 at-bats. If Asche begins to hit the ball better at Triple-A, he may come back to Philadelphia and take Paredes spot on the roster.

Paredes could lose his roster spot when Peter Bourjos returns from the disabled list, Jim Salibury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bourjos could return to the Phillies as soon as Friday. Paredes has just 44 at-bats since the beginning of July and has hit .136 with a .496 OPS and two home runs over that span.

Paredes hit a solo homer in his only at-bat Sunday at the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes launched his second homer of the campaign in the eighth inning, providing the only run the Phillies would score in a 2-1 loss. Despite the bomb, the part-timer finished a dreadful July in which he only collected four hits in 27 at-bats.

Paredes went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Wednesday's 11-1 loss to the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

Paredes got the start in right field Wednesday with Peter Bourjos sidelined due to a shoulder injury. Paredes won't get increased playing time even though Bourjos is expected to hit the disabled list, as Aaron Altherr is set to return from the DL Thursday and he should see the majority of the starts in right field moving forward.
