Gerardo Parra OF MIL 22 Hrs

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.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Diamondbacks are shopping Gerardo Parra.

The D'Backs are open for business, as they're also listening on Addison Reed, Aaron Hill, Oliver Perez, Martin Prado and Josh Collmenter. Crasnick notes that Arizona "loves Parra's makeup," but he'll be arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter and has only a .657 OPS this season.

Gerardo Parra went 5-for-7 with a walk, double, stolen base, and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-8, 14-inning win over the Indians on Tuesday night.

Parra's most impressive sequence of the evening sealed the victory: He singled in the 14th, stole second, advanced to third on Paul Goldschmidt's sacrifice fly and scored on Aaron Hill's walk-off hit. The 27-year-old hasn't quite managed to make the leap into widespread mixed league appeal in 2014, though he'll be in the lineup everyday as a valued defender. Parra, whose batting average jumped 10 points tonight, is hitting .265/.318/.375 and is on pace for 10 homers, 49 RBI, 85 runs and 10 steals.

Gerardo Parra singled in Cody Ross in the bottom of the 11th to give Arizona a 4-3 win over Atlanta on Saturday.

The Diamondbacks proved resilient tonight, tying the game at 2 off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth, scoring again in the 10th after Jason Heyward homered and then winning it in the 11th. They prevailed despite finishing the game 2-for-17 with runners in scoring position. Parra's hit, a bloop single to center, was his only one in five at-bats tonight.

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI and run scored in the Diamondbacks' 12-6 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old continues to hang around the fringes of mixed league usability. He's not sexy, but Parra won't kill you in any category. Batting .266, the 27-year-old is on pace for 15 homers, 53 RBI, 85 runs and 12 steals.
