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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
Jan 16 - 12:27 PM

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Brewers are "open to moving" outfielder Gerardo Parra.

MLB Trade Rumors projects Parra to make $6.4 million during his final year of arbitration in 2015, so the Brewers could move him to clear some salary and pick up prospects or a piece to help at the major league level. Rosenthal writes that Parra could be a target for teams that miss out on free agent outfielder Melky Cabrera. Parra, 27, batted .261/.308/.369 with nine home runs and 40 RBI this past season and carries the reputation as a strong defensive outfielder.

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a double and a home run in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

Parra was one of the few Brewers capable of getting to Cardinals starter Lance Lynn, taking him deep to right in the fourth inning for a solo shot. Parra also doubled in the 11th inning but was stranded on base. The outfielder now has nine home runs to go with a .267/.314/.381 line on the year, but he's been especially rejuvenated since being dealt to the Brewers -- Parra is batting .305 in 95 at-bats since the deadline trade.

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a two-run single and a run scored Friday against the Dodgers.

His single capped a go-ahead four-run rally in the seventh inning. Acquired from the Diamondbacks last week, Parra figures to cut into Khris Davis' playing time against right-handers down the stretch. The 27-year-old is batting .257/.305/.363 with seven home runs, 33 RBI, and six stolen bases over 110 games this season and brings Gold Glove defense in the outfield.

Gerardo Parra hit a game-winning solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Giants.

Parra was hitless in his first seven at-bats following the trade before hitting the solo home run off Jean Machi. Parra got the start because Khris Davis was nursing a sore left elbow, and the two will likely platoon in left field for the remainder of the season. Parra is hitting .256/.303/.365 overall on the year.

Brewers acquired OF Gerardo Parra from the Diamondbacks for OF Mitch Haniger and LHP Anthony Banda.

When he's in the lineup, Parra will team with Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun to give Milwaukee one of the majors' best defensive outfield alignments. Of course, this isn't great news for Khris Davis, or Parra himself, as the pair will now share at-bats. Parra is slashing only .259/.305/.362.

John Gambadoro of Arizona Sports 98.7 reports the Diamondbacks have traded Gerardo Parra to the Brewers.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick says that outfield prospect Mitch Haniger, a supplemental first-round pick from 2012, is headed to Arizona in return. The Diamondbacks will also get left-hander Anthony Banda, a 10th-round pick from 2012. Parra hasn't hit very well this season, but he's a very good defensive outfielder.

ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that the Diamondbacks are shopping Gerardo Parra.

The D'Backs are open for business, as they're also listening on Addison Reed, Aaron Hill, Oliver Perez, Martin Prado and Josh Collmenter. Crasnick notes that Arizona "loves Parra's makeup," but he'll be arbitration-eligible for a final time this winter and has only a .657 OPS this season.

Gerardo Parra went 5-for-7 with a walk, double, stolen base, and two runs scored in Tuesday's 9-8, 14-inning win over the Indians on Tuesday night.

Parra's most impressive sequence of the evening sealed the victory: He singled in the 14th, stole second, advanced to third on Paul Goldschmidt's sacrifice fly and scored on Aaron Hill's walk-off hit. The 27-year-old hasn't quite managed to make the leap into widespread mixed league appeal in 2014, though he'll be in the lineup everyday as a valued defender. Parra, whose batting average jumped 10 points tonight, is hitting .265/.318/.375 and is on pace for 10 homers, 49 RBI, 85 runs and 10 steals.
