Orioles acquired OF Gerardo Parra from the Brewers for RHP Zach Davies.
Two months later, the Orioles have replaced Alejandro De Aza with another Alejandro De Aza, but one who happens to be in the midst of a career season. Or, at least, a career three months so far. Parra was hitting .328/.369/.517 for Milwaukee, a huge improvement over his .265/.316/.387 lines from the previous two seasons. He's never played in the AL before, so he's facing a transition, and most likely, he'll begin to revert to something closer to his career numbers. That still probably makes him the Orioles' best option in left field against right-handers. He's just not really likely to be a difference maker. Jul 31 - 12:55 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are "closing in" on a trade for Gerardo Parra in exchange for pitching prospect Zach Davies.

CBS Sport' Jon Heyman says the deal is done, pending physicals. Parra has turned into a nice trade chip for Milwaukee by batting .328/.369/.517 with nine homers and nine stolen bases this season. The O's are also after Ben Revere as they look to remake their corner outfield spots.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman believes that the Orioles are the "best bet" to acquire Gerardo Parra from the Brewers.

It's been reported that they're also after Ben Revere, as they could use help at both corner outfield spots. Parra entered the season as a highly paid fourth outfielder but has turned into a nice trade chip for the Brewers by batting .328/.369/.517 with nine homers and nine stolen bases.
Jul 31 - 9:28 AM

Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Orioles have emerged as a strong possibility to acquire Gerardo Parra from the Brewers.

The Orioles continue to believe that they are in the thick of the race for one of the Wild Cards in the American League, and Parra would certainly be an upgrade both offensively and defensively. As the O's don't have the necessary prospects to land any of the top outfielders on the market, Parra seems like a tremendous fit.
Jul 30 - 10:23 PM

Gerardo Parra went 3-for-4 with a double, a triple, and three runs scored while extending his hitting streak to 11 games in Tuesday's win against the Giants.

Parra led off the game with a double and came around to score in a two-run opening frame. He led off the third with a single and scored, then tripled and scored in the seventh. Parra is having a career year, batting .324/.365/.517 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, 52 runs scored, and seven stolen bases. He could be wearing a new uniform in the next two days as the trade deadline approaches.
Jul 29 - 12:55 AM

Gerardo Parra is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Friday.

It's just a routine day of rest for Parra against opposing left-hander Patrick Corbin. Khris Davis will start in left field and bat sixth for the Brewers on Friday.
Jul 24 - 5:15 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with two triples, an RBI and two runs scored in a win over the Indians on Tuesday.

Parra led off the bottom of the first inning with a triple, later scoring a run, and he managed to do it again with an RBI triple in the eighth. The outfielder is having a heck of a season after starting the year in a part-time role -- after Tuesday's game, Parra is hitting .315/.352/.514 with nine homers, 31 RBI, 45 runs scored and six steals. He's playing well enough that he may be playing his way out of Milwaukee and onto a championship contender by next week's trade deadline.
Jul 21 - 11:18 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Mets are looking at Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra.

This confirms a report from Newsday's Marc Carig, who hears that the Mets are also keeping an eye on big names like Justin Upton and Carlos Gomez. Parra figures to be very popular leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but his price tag could be lower than Upton or Gomez. Known for his solid defense, the 28-year-old is having a huge year at the plate this season, batting .313/.348/.500 with nine home runs, 30 RBI, and six steals over 90 games.
Jul 21 - 12:04 PM

Gerardo Parra is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday.

He'll take a seat against tough opposing left-hander Francisco Liriano. Khris Davis will take his place in left field and bat sixth for the Brewers on Saturday.
Jul 18 - 1:51 PM

Gerardo Parra remained hot at the plate, going 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles as the Brewers topped the Pirates 4-1 on Friday in Milwaukee.

Parra also scored a run and drove home a run in the contest. He has been a catalyst atop the Brewers lineup since he took over the everyday role in left field, slashing .311/.345/.502 with 30 RBI. The longer that he keeps hitting, he better return he may generate the Brewers in a deadline deal.
Jul 17 - 11:11 PM

Gerardo Parra went 3-for-5 with his ninth homer and 21st double Saturday against the Dodgers.

Parra's average is up to .309, and as hot as he's been, he'll get to continue to play regularly over Khris Davis. Eventually, though, either he or Carlos Gomez figures to be dealt. Perhaps even both will.
Jul 12 - 2:06 AM

Brewers manager Craig Counsell said Tuesday that Gerardo Parra will remain the club's starter in left field following Khris Davis' return from the disabled list.

It's no surprise, as Parra has been one of the hottest hitters in baseball with a .403/.438/.653 batting line over his last 18 games. Davis started in left on Tuesday but will likely be limited to the occasional start versus southpaws going forward. Of course, it could all be a moot point later this month, as Parra is likely to be traded to a contender.
Jul 7 - 8:26 PM

Gerardo Parra clubbed another home run in a 2-for-4 effort against the Braves in a loss on Monday.

Parra halved the Brewers' deficit to 2-1 with a solo home run in the first inning against Matt Wisler. The outfielder has hit three home runs in his last four games and is now on a six-game hitting streak. He has eight home runs, 26 RBI, 39 runs scored, and a .311/.347/.492 triple-slash line on the year.
Jul 6 - 11:45 PM

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.
Jul 6 - 12:56 PM

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.
