Gerardo Parra had another nice day at the dish on Friday, going 2-for-3 with an RBI as the A's and D'Backs played to a 2-2 tie.

Parra has looked very impressive this spring, hitting .375 (9-for-24) with a pair of homers, 10 RBI and a steal. Despite entering the season as the D'Backs fourth outfielder, manager Kirk Gibson has already indicated that he will be in the lineup on a regular basis. He should have no problem accumulating 500 plate appearances, and with it, he has the potential to deliver double digit totals in both home runs and steals.
