Gerrardo Parra is out of the lineup for the Rockies on Wednesday.

Sep 13 - 6:52 PM

Gerardo Parra went 1-for-4 and drove in a pair of runs on Tuesday as the Rockies rallied to beat the Tigers.

Parra delivered a two-run single in the third inning that increased the club's early lead to 3-0. He has been absolutely locked in at the plate for the last two months and is now slashing an impressive .341/.372/.505 with 10 homers and 62 RBI on the year.
Aug 29 - 11:55 PM

Gerardo Parra went 1-for-4 and plated the Rockies' lone run as they dropped the nightcap of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Parra brought home Jon Gray with an RBI single in the fifth inning that gave the Rockies a 1-0 lead, but that wound up being the extent of their offense. The veteran outfielder has been on fire recently and is now hitting .354/.376/.531 with eight homers and 45 RBI in 226 plate appearances.
Jul 30 - 10:18 PM

Gerardo Parra stayed smoking hot by going 2-for-3 with a run and an RBI in Saturday's win over the Nationals.

He smacked an RBI double in the fifth inning, then came around to score on a Mark Reynolds double. Parra missed most of June with a quad injury but has been on a real tear since the All Star break. He has a .363/.385/.547 slash line for the season with eight homers and 44 RBI in 218 plate appearances. If he was dropped in your league go get him and ride him until he cools off.
Jul 29 - 10:33 PM

Gerardo Parra (calf) is back in the Rockies' lineup Monday.

Parra didn't start the last two games in part due to a bruised right calf. Ian Desmond is sitting out while the red-hot Parra handles left field.
Jul 24 - 5:00 PM

Gerardo Parra finished 3-for-3 with a double, two walks, three runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's victory against San Diego.

Parra has been on fire since returning from the 10-day disabled list on July 7, posting six multi-hit games in eight outings, including two or more hits in each of his past three starts. He also has at least one RBI in each of his eight games since his return.
Jul 19 - 1:29 AM

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.
