Gerardo Parra went 3-for-4 with a three-run home run and three runs scored in Sunday's 8-4 win over the Cardinals.
Parra notched a three-run homer off Lance Lynn in the fourth inning to jump the Rockies out to a 4-0 lead. They would go on to win by a final score of 8-4. With this big performance under his belt, he now owns a .279/.301/.442 triple-slash with six homers and 23 RBI in 42 games played. Parra has not hit double-digit home runs since the 2013 season, but looks like he could be on that track this year. May 28 - 6:27 PM

Date:

Gerardo Parra homered, walked and scored twice against the Twins on Tuesday.

Parra hasn't been nearly as much of a disaster this year as he was at the beginning of last year, but a .714 OPS from a Coors Field player is still pretty bleak. He should get considerably less playing time going forward with Ian Desmond back and David Dahl hopefully returning next month.
May 16 - 11:37 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Parra smacked a two-run home run off Jeff Samardzija in the fourth inning. That boosted the Rockies to a 3-0 advantage, more than enough for an on-point Kyle Freeland to work with. Just for good measure, he added an RBI single in the sixth. Parra has hit two home runs and driven in 10 runs during the early going and is working to a hot .333/.373/.479 triple-slash as he nears the close to the first month of the season.
Apr 23 - 6:17 PM

Gerardo Parra went 0-for-4 in the loss to the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Parra shouldn't have been expected to do anything tonight against Clayton Kershaw, but he had actually hit .364/.417/.606 in 33 career at-bats versus the lefty coming into this one. Parra still has a .300 average at the moment, but his OPS is down to .733. It'd be for the best if the Rockies could send him back to the bench soon.
Apr 20 - 1:32 AM

Rockies activated OF Gerardo Parra from the paternity leave list.

Parra missed a handful of games while welcoming a new child into the world. He is not in the Rockies' starting lineup Tuesday but will be available off the bench.
Apr 18 - 6:43 PM

Rockies placed OF Gerardo Parra on the paternity leave list.

Parra will be away from the club for a day or two to witness the birth of his child. Ramiel Tapia has been recalled in a corresponding move to provide depth while he's away.
Apr 14 - 7:11 PM

Gerardo Parra is not in the Rockies' lineup Thursday against the Giants.

Parra is just 2-for-19 with seven strikeouts against tonight's starter Madison Bumgarner. Stephen Cardullo will draw the start in left field and bat seventh. Parra is healthy and should be available as a pinch-hitter as soon as Bumgarner exits the game.
Apr 13 - 6:54 PM

Gerardo Parra went 3-for-5 with an RBI single in Sunday's loss to the Dodgers.

Parra picked up an RBI single against Kenta Maeda in the fifth inning. That hit gave him six RBI on the young season. The 29-year-old outfielder holds deep mixed-league intrigue so long as David Dahl (rib) remains sidelined.
Apr 9 - 7:40 PM

Gerardo Parra hit his first homer of the season in Saturday's win over the Dodgers.

Not only that, but he did it against all-everything starter Clayton Kershaw, and it was the second act of back-to-back homers in the sixth inning. Parra has multiple hits in three of his six games this year, and he's now got five RBI. He'll continue to get regular playing time with David Dahl sidelined, and is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues if only for the fact that he plays his home games in Colorado.
Apr 8 - 11:57 PM

Gerardo Parra is not in the Rockies' lineup Friday.

He's receiving the day off with the Dodgers throwing left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu. Stephen Cardullo will handle left field. Tony Wolters is also on the bench, as Dustin Garneau is doing the catching.

Gerardo Parra had three hits -- including a bases-clearing double -- in Tuesday's win over the Brewers.

Parra gave the Rockies an early 4-1 lead in the third inning when he doubled to center with three ducks on the pond. He also added a couple singles and a run scored. The veteran outfielder is off to a fine start as he fills in in left field for the injured David Dahl (rib), as he's gone 5-for-9 with four RBI.
Apr 5 - 12:05 AM

Gerardo Parra enjoyed a nice day at the plate in the Rockies’ 16-7 victory over the Indians on Friday, going 3-for-3 with an RBI single and two runs scored.

He had two singles and a double. Parra currently projects to serve as a fourth outfielder this season, but he could begin the year with a bigger role if David Dahl’s back injury continues to linger. The 29-year-old batted just .253/.271/.399 with seven homers and 39 RBI over 102 games during his first season with Colorado.
Mar 3 - 6:53 PM

Gerardo Parra said he's over the high ankle sprain that plagued him throughout 2016.

Parra hopped around for local reporters Tuesday during a Winter Caravan stop at the Rockies Dugout Store in Colorado Springs. "I'm jumping," he said. "My ankle is not bad anymore." Parra is aiming to reclaim a starting job in the Rockies' outfield for 2017, but the 29-year-old was dreadful last season and that part of the Colorado depth chart is awfully crowded. A utility role seems more likely.
Jan 24 - 8:07 PM

Gerardo Parra is not in the Rockies starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Brewers.

Parra has been banged up and battled illness recently, so he'll get a breather on the penultimate day of the regular season. Expect to see him back in there for Sunday's season finale.
Sat, Oct 1, 2016 03:35:00 PM

Gerardo Parra (illness) is not in the Rockies starting like for Friday's game against the Dodgers.

Parra was a late scratch from Thursday's lineup due to an illness. It's unclear if Friday's absence is related to him still feeling under the weather, or it's simply a product of the matchup against left-hander Scott Kazmir. He's still considered day-to-day.
