Gerardo Parra went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's win over the Cubs.
Parra contributed a two-run single in the Rockies' five-run fifth inning against Yu Darvish and company. Shortly after the hit, he stole second base, his second steal of the season. Parra has gotten some extra playing time lately with Carlos Gonzalez sidelined and some other hitters struggling, but he hasn't been a revelation, either, slashing .217/.280/.290 in 69 at-bats. He'll ideally slide back into a fourth outfielder role as players' health improves and abilities even out. Apr 21 - 11:22 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in a win over the Nationals on Thursday.

Parra picked up a couple of singles in the contest, coming around to score in the second and sixth innings as part of DJ LeMahieu's big night. The same hasn't been said of many of Parra's nights lately, as Thursday's game was just his second multi-hit effort of the season. The 30-year-old is batting .238/.304/.333 in 13 games overall.

Gerardo Parra (hand) is set to take his first live batting practice session of the spring on Wednesday.

Parra had a goal to begin playing in Cactus League games by March 10, and he could come pretty close to meeting it. That would put him on track to be ready for Opening Day, as long as there are no setbacks. The 30-year-old outfielder underwent surgery on February 9 to remove the hamate bone from his right hand.

Gerardo Parra (hand) took batting practice Thursday and is slated to face live pitching by Monday at the latest.

Rockies manager Bud Black said Friday that he thinks Parra is about 8-9 days away from his Cactus League debut, so it sounds like the outfielder will come close to meeting his goal of playing by March 10. Barring a setback, he should be fine by Opening Day.
Mar 2 - 2:59 PM

Gerardo Parra had the stitches removed from his surgically-repaired right hand.

He had the hamate bone removed from his right hand earlier this month. Parra will shag flies on Saturday and resume swinging a bat early next week. He hopes to be ready for all baseball activities in 10 days and for games about a week after that.
Feb 23 - 10:13 AM

Gerardo Parra underwent surgery on February 9 to remove the hamate bone from his right hand.

Parra said he expects to return around March 8-10, which would be a fairly aggressive timetable. If he is able to make it back by that time, he'll have no problem getting ready in time for Opening Day. Parra currently looks pegged to be the Rockies' right fielder after batting .309/.341/.452 with 10 home runs for them last season. If the veteran outfielder's rehab progresses slower than expected and he needs a disabled list stint, it could potentially open up a job for Raimel Tapia or David Dahl.
Feb 16 - 10:30 AM

Gerardo Parra went 1-for-4 and plated the Rockies' lone run as they dropped the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Parra brought home Jon Gray with an RBI single in the fifth inning that gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead, but that wound up being the extent of their offense. The veteran outfielder has been on fire recently and is now hitting .354/.376/.531 with eight homers and 45 RBI in 226 plate appearances.

Gerardo Parra stayed smoking hot by going 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

He smacked an RBI double in the fifth inning, then came around to score on a Mark Reynolds double. Parra missed most of June with a quad injury but has been on a real tear since the All Star break. He has a .363/.385/.547 slash line for the season with eight homers and 44 RBI in 218 plate appearances. If he was dropped in your league go get him and ride him until he cools off.
