Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Friday’s loss to the Mets.

He got the Rockies on the board in the first inning, but the Mets quickly pulled away in this one. Parra has been excellent when healthy this season, batting .339/.364/.503 with six homers and 34 RBI through 53 games. He’d be worth a pickup in deeper mixed fantasy leagues if the playing time was there, but this outfield is very crowded and fixes to get more complicated when Ian Desmond (calf) and David Dahl (rib cage) are deemed ready to return.
Jul 14 - 11:27 PM

Rockies activated OF Gerardo Parra from the 10-day disabled list.

Parra missed the last month with a strained quad. The Rockies are expected to keep playing Raimel Tapia while Ian Desmond (calf) is out, so Parra will back up in the outfield and at first base.
Jul 7 - 5:40 PM

Gerardo Parra (quadriceps) is expected to become the primary backup at first base once he returns from his Triple-A rehab assignment.

Parra, on the 10-day disabled list since June 7 due to a strained right quadriceps, was 1-for-4 with a walk in Wednesday's rehab game in Albuquerque. He anticipates rejoining the team on Friday for a weekend interleague series against the White Sox.
Jul 6 - 1:33 AM

Gerardo Parra (quad) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Tuesday.

He'll play three games for them before being activated from the disabled list Friday if all goes well. Parra has been on the shelf since early June with a right quad strain.
Jul 3 - 5:48 PM

Gerardo Parra (quad) will begin a rehab assignment if an MRI on Monday shows sufficient healing.

He'll play three games with Triple-A Albuquerque before presumably being activated after that, so it sounds like it's possible Parra could return as soon as late this week. He's been out since early June with a right quad strain.
Jul 2 - 3:07 PM

Gerardo Parra (quad) is running at about 75 percent effort.

He's also been taking batting practice and shagging flyballs. However, there's no timetable for Parra's return and Rockies manager Bud Black indicated Tuesday that the club will be cautious. "The trainers assured me that there was some damage from the muscle to the bone, and sometimes that can give you a little bit of false read on how he’s feeling," Black said. "This is a real injury, so it’s going to take time."

Gerardo Parra (quad) will run on the field Sunday for the first time since going on the disabled list.

Parra had been limited to exercising in the pool. His recovery from a strained right quad has gone slower than expected, but it appears he's making some strides.
Jun 18 - 1:06 PM

Rockies manager Bud Black said Tuesday that Gerardo Parra (quad) might be out longer than initially expected.

There was a report last week suggesting Parra might be ready to return in late June or early July, but it doesn't sound like that will happen. Parra landed on the disabled list June 7 after straining his right quad while trying to steal second base on June 6.
Jun 13 - 5:19 PM

According to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, the Rockies are "encouraged" that Gerardo Parra's right quad strain is not as bad as they feared.

Parra pulled up lame on a stolen base attempt in the bottom of the third inning Tuesday and looked to be in visible pain as he limped off the field, but it sounds like he might only miss 2-3 weeks. The 30-year-old was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday morning. Raimel Tapia is filling his spot as a utility outfielder in Colorado.
Jun 7 - 2:13 PM

Rockies placed OF Gerardo Parra on the 10-day disabled list with a right quad strain.

Parra suffered the injury Tuesday while trying to steal second base in the bottom of the third inning. This type of injury can often cost an outfielder a full month, or even two. Jordan Patterson has been called up to provide first base and corner outfield depth, and outfield prospect Raimel Tapia is going to stick around on the MLB roster too.
Jun 7 - 12:41 PM

Rockies manager Bud Black confirmed late Tuesday that Gerardo Parra (quad) will be placed on the disabled list.

Parra suffered a right quad strain Tuesday while attempting to steal second base in the bottom of the third inning and could need several weeks of rest and recovery. Ian Desmond is positioned as the Rockies' primary left fielder, but this could also open some playing time for 23-year-old prospect Raimel Tapia, who was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque before Tuesday's game.
Jun 7 - 12:01 AM

Gerardo Parra has been diagnosed with a right quad strain.

Parra suffered the injury on a stolen-base attempt in the bottom of the third inning. He's likely to be placed on the disabled list Wednesday and could miss more than a month. Raimel Tapia, who was added to the 25-man roster Tuesday afternoon, might finally get an extended look at the major league level.
Jun 6 - 10:41 PM

Gerardo Parra left Tuesday's game against the Indians after suffering an apparent leg injury.

Parra pulled up lame on a stolen base attempt in the bottom of the third inning and showed visible frustration, slamming his helmet on the field and spiking his gloves after limping back into the dugout. Ian Desmond replaced him in left field to open the top of the fourth. This looks like it could be a DL situation for Parra.
Jun 6 - 9:50 PM

Gerardo Parra paced the Rockies with four hits Thursday in a win over the Mariners.

What a game for Parra, who doubled and singled three times. He only been a part-time player since the return of Ian Desmond but has obviously made the most of his limited opportunities. He’s notched 10 hits in his last 13 at-bats while raising his average from .264 to .312.
