According to ESPN's Buster Olney, the Giants are looking at Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra and Braves outfielder Cameron Maybin as possible trade targets.

Parra is currently playing for one of the worst teams in baseball and is a logical trade candidate. He's been on fire of late, too, raising his season slash line to .308/.345/.477 thanks to a bevy of multi-hit games to start July. He's also swatted seven home runs and driven in 25. Olney notes that Giant outfielders--combined--have hit just 12 homers on the season.

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-5 with a solo home run as the Brewers topped the Reds on Sunday.

Parra homered in the seventh inning off of Carlos Contreras, extending the Brewers' lead to 4-0. The outfielder has racked up five consecutive multi-hit games to open up the month of July. The surge has raised his triple-slash line to .308/.345/.477 with seven home runs and 25 RBI.
Jul 5 - 4:00 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's demolition of the Reds.

Throw a dart at the Brewer lineup on Friday and you were liable to hit somebody having a big game. Parra did his part leading off. He smacked a solo homer in the first inning to start the scoring party, then added a sacrifice fly in the ninth just for kicks and giggles. His numbers are solid across the board, as he's slashing .303/.337/.466 with six homers, 24 RBI and 35 runs scored. He could very well end up being traded before the deadline, given the Brewers' 34-48 record.
Jul 3 - 11:38 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-5 with a solo homer Friday against the Twins.

His leadoff homer against Trevor May was the start of a six-run first inning for Milwaukee. Parra has played very well since stepping into a regular role and has hit either first or second in 11 out of his last 12 games. The 28-year-old is batting .288/.317/.447 overall and should be a popular trade target in advance of July 31.
Jun 26 - 11:26 PM

Gerardo Parra went 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored Friday against the Nationals.

Pushed into regular duty with Khris Davis (knee) sidelined, Parra owns a healthy .285/.321/.453 batting line over 59 games this season. He's a natural candidate to be moved before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
Jun 13 - 12:49 AM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 and hit his fourth homer as the Brewers topped the Nationals 6-5 on Thursday.

With Carlos Gomez down for a spell and now Khris Davis out, Parra has gotten to play a lot more than expected this year and has hit .274/.307/.440 in 168 at-bats. He's giving the Brewers their money's worth after they weighed non-tendering him rather than paying him a $6 million-$6.5 million salary in arbitration.
Jun 12 - 12:02 AM

Gerardo Parra finished 4-for-5 with a home run in the Brewers' loss to the Cardinals on Wednesday.

Parra hit a solo shot off John Lackey in the top of the third inning and added three singles, scoring two runs and boosting his season batting line to .282/.311/.451. Parra is going to play regularly while Khris Davis recovers from knee surgery and deserves consideration in deep mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 3 - 4:28 PM

Gerardo Parra was 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, and two runs scored against the Mets on Friday.

Parra smacked an RBI double in a four-run third inning and added a solo homer two innings later. The 28-year-old has been red-hot of late and could take some more at-bats away from Khris Davis as long as it continues.
May 15 - 9:47 PM

Gerardo Parra helped crush the Cubs on Saturday, going 2-for-2 with a home run and four RBI.

Parra hit a two-run homer off of Cub starter Travis Wood in the second inning, then added a sacrifice fly in the third and an RBI single in the sixth to cap off the 12-4 win. Parra's getting playing time with Carlos Gomez on the disabled list and has taken advantage, hitting .280/.300/.480 across 75 at-bats.
May 9 - 10:37 PM

Gerardo Parra went 1-for-2 and drove home a pair of runs in a losing effort against the Pirates on Friday.

Parra plated the Brewers first run with a ground ball in the second inning, then doubled home Khris Davis in the sixth. He is getting a chance to serve as the Brewers everyday center fielder with Carlos Gomez on the disabled list, and appears to be making the most of his opportunity early on.
Apr 17 - 10:07 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with two RBI in Saturday's lopsided Cactus League win over the Rangers.

Parra delivered a two-run single with the bases loaded in the sixth inning. He also doubled in the contest. Parra is hitting .267 in Cactus League play and is slated to be the primary backup outfielder for the Brewers.
Mar 21 - 7:36 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-3 with a sacrifice fly and a three-run home run in Wednesday's win over the Royals.

Parra tacked on the Brewers' third run with a sac fly in the second inning, then padded the lead with a three-run blast off of Edinson Volquez in the fourth. Parra needed that performance as he entered hitting just .150 in 20 spring at-bats. At the moment, Parra appears to be on the outside looking in for the starting left field job behind Khris Davis.
Mar 18 - 7:43 PM

Gerardo Parra will get some work at first base.

Parra has never played an inning at first base in pro ball, but he's trying to increase his versatility and could be considered there as an emergency option. Khris Davis is expected to be the regular left fielder for the Brewers this season, so Parra is a bench player at the moment.
Mar 10 - 1:49 PM

Brewers and OF Gerardo Parra avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.2375 million contract.

It's right at the $6.4 million MLBTradeRumors.com projected Parra to earn in his final year of arbitration. It's a lot to pay for a fourth outfielder, but Parra should again be a useful player for the Brewers as a good defender with a solid .274/.326/.395 career batting line.
