Yankees placed 1B Chris Parmelee on the 15-day disabled list with a strained hamstring.

This was expected. Parmelee suffered the injury while making a stretch for a throw at first base on Thursday and after the game, manager Joe Girardi said that he would be "completely shocked" if Parmelee avoided the disabled list. Rob Refsnyder figures to see the majority of at-bats in Parmelee's place, though Nick Swisher (currently at Triple-A) is another potential option. Mark Teixeira remains out of the picture with a knee injury.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi said he would be "completely shocked" if Chris Parmelee (hamstring) avoids the disabled list.

So would we. Parmelee suffered a nasty-looking hamstring injury Thursday night while stretching out for a throw at first base. Rob Refsnyder could be close to everyday player during his absence. Nick Swisher, who is currently with the Yankees' Triple-A affiliate in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, could also be called up to play some first base. Mark Teixeira (knee) is still at least three weeks away from joining the club.

Chris Parmelee left Thursday's game against the Angels with a right hamstring injury.

Parmelee injured himself stretching out for a ball at first base. It didn't look good as Parmelee was essentially carried off the field. Rob Refsnyder entered the game in his place in the eighth inning. Parmelee went 1-for-3 before exiting. Keep in mind, the Yankees are already without starting first baseman Mark Teixeira, who is out with an articular cartilage tear in his right knee.

Chris Parmelee had three hits, including two home runs, to go with three runs and three RBI Wednesday as the Yankees took down the Angels.

The 28-year old journeyman had a game to remember today. The three hits were his first of the season. He smacked a solo homer off Jered Weaver in the sixth inning and then smashed a two-run blast off reliever Greg Mahle in the seventh. Parmelee is sharing time at first base with Rob Refsnyder while Mark Teixeira is hurt. Perhaps this game will earn Parmelee some extra starts in the coming days.

Yankees purchased the contract of 1B/OF Chris Parmelee from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

New York needed to replace Mark Teixeira, who was placed on the disabled list with an articular cartilage tear in his right knee. Parmelee has had a so-so year for the RailRiders, hitting .244 with seven homers and 21 RBI. He and Rob Refsnyder are expected to split time at first base in Teixiera's absence. The Yankees moved Dustin Ackley to the 60-day disabled list to make room for Parmelee on the 40-man roster.

Yankees reassigned 1B/OF Chris Parmelee to minor league camp.

Parmelee struggled offensively this spring, hitting just .156 across 32 Grapefruit League at-bats. The Yankees don't have much depth at first base with Greg Bird (shoulder) out for the year so Parmelee should get some chances in New York later this year.
Mar 26 - 5:16 PM

Yankees signed 1B/OF Chris Parmelee to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Parmelee announced the deal himself on his Instagram account. The 27-year-old hit .216/.255/.433 with four homers and nine RBI in 97 at-bats with the Orioles in 2015. He'll add some much needed organizational depth at first base for the Yankees in the wake of Greg Bird's injury.
Feb 21 - 10:46 PM

Chris Parmelee has elected free agency.

Parolee missed the final month of the season with a broken arm. He spent most of the 2015 campaign bouncing between Baltimore and Triple-A Norfolk. The 27 year old owns a .245 average in 909 career major league at-bats.

Chris Parmalee suffered a broken arm after being hit by a pitch on Wednesday.

Tough week for Parmalee. He was sent outright to Triple-A Norfolk on August 8. After accepting the assignment, he had played just two games before being hit by a pitch and breaking his arm. There's no current timetable for his return.

Orioles sent INF/OF Chris Parmelee outright to Triple-A Norfolk.

He can either accept the assignment or elect free agency. The 27-year-old was DFA'd last week after hitting just .216 in 97 at-bats for the O's. Parmelee can play first base and both corner outfield positions.

Orioles designated INF/OF Chris Parmelee for assignment.

He was sent out to create a spot on the active roster for the newly-acquired Gerardo Parra. The 27-year-old blasted three home runs in his first two games with the Orioles, but hit just .182/.217/.318 with one homer, six RBI and a 26/3 K/BB ratio in 30 games since.

Chris Parmelee blasted his fourth home run of the season as the Orioles topped the Indians 8-0, sweeping Sunday's doubleheader.

Parmelee's two-run blast capped off a six-run uprising in the fourth inning, and was one of three long balls in the frame, joining teammates Chris Davis and Travis Snider. He has provided a nice spark to the Orioles offense since being recalled from Triple-A, slashing .302/.348/.721 with four homers and six RBI. While he won't continue this type of production, fantasy owners should continue to ride the hot hand until he starts to fade.

Chris Parmelee hit his third home run of the season, finishing 1-for-3 with a walk in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.

Parmelee, called up from Triple-A on Tuesday, went 4-for-6 with a pair of home runs in his first game with the O's. The show continued on Wednesday as he drilled a solo home run to right field off of Kevin Correia in the first inning, staking the Orioles to an early 1-0 lead. Parmelee had been hitting quite well at Triple-A prior to his call-up, so the Orioles and fantasy owners alike should be interested in riding the hot streak while it lasts.

Chris Parmelee had the best game of his career Tuesday, finishing 4-for-6 with two solo home runs.

Parmelee, recently promoted from Triple-A, had never had a four-hit game and had homered twice in a game once back in 2013. His first home run came in the second inning off of Dustin McGowan. He added another in the sixth off of Justin De Fratus. They were two of a whopping eight home runs the Orioles hit on the evening. Tuesday's performance should certainly encourage the Orioles, who have gotten dreadful offensive contributions out of their corner outfielders. Those in AL-only leagues may want to take a gamble.
