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. Jun 25 - 3:29 AM

Gerardo Parra singled in Cody Ross in the bottom of the 11th to give Arizona a 4-3 win over Atlanta on Saturday.

The Diamondbacks proved resilient tonight, tying the game at 2 off Craig Kimbrel in the ninth, scoring again in the 10th after Jason Heyward homered and then winning it in the 11th. They prevailed despite finishing the game 2-for-17 with runners in scoring position. Parra's hit, a bloop single to center, was his only one in five at-bats tonight.
Jun 8 - 2:28 AM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-5 with a double, RBI and run scored in the Diamondbacks' 12-6 win over the Padres on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old continues to hang around the fringes of mixed league usability. He's not sexy, but Parra won't kill you in any category. Batting .266, the 27-year-old is on pace for 15 homers, 53 RBI, 85 runs and 12 steals.
May 29 - 1:15 AM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run and two runs scored in the Diamondbacks' 5-1 win over the White Sox on Sunday.

Parra also smacked his second triple of the season and scored twice in the game. The outfielder has hits in nine straight games, raising his line to .275/.320/.406 with 24 runs scored.
May 11 - 6:01 PM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-4 with a double and pair of runs scored in Monday’s loss to the Brewers.

Parra was again hitting out of the leadoff spot in the Diamondbacks lineup. The two-hit effort raises his average to .268 on the season to go along with a pair of homers and three stolen bases.
May 5 - 11:44 PM

Gerardo Parra finished 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Monday's setback against the Rockies.

It was Parra's second homer overall and his first since April 9. This was only Parra's second extra-base hit since April 13, but the other came on Sunday, so hopefully he's broken out of the little funk he was in. He's slashing .268/.308/.375 in the early going.
Apr 29 - 12:48 AM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-3 and scored two runs as the Diamondbacks' leadoff hitter on Thursday.

Parra has now made 15 starts in the leadoff spot and scored 12 runs in those games, though his .323 OBP is nothing exceptional. The Diamondbacks will probably keep him there against right-handers until someone better comes along.
Apr 24 - 5:59 PM

Gerardo Parra went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in a loss to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Parra also stole his first base of the season. It was Parra's second three-hit game in a week, and the outfielder is batting .279/.308/.410 with 10 runs scored in 15 games played. He's been one of the few bright spots for the Diamondbacks thus far.
Apr 13 - 9:14 PM

Gerardo Parra finished a double short of the cycle on Wednesday, going 3-for-5 with two RBI and three runs scored in a 7-3 victory over the Giants.

It was Parra's first triple and homer of the season, respectively, but fortunately not his first single. The 26-year-old Venezuelan is slashing .273/.298/.432 with seven RBI through 44 at-bats. He's also scored seven runs, and will cross the plate plenty more this season as Arizona's primary leadoff hitter.
Apr 10 - 1:28 AM

Gerardo Parra went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Thursday's 8-8 tie with the Athletics.

Parra put the D'Backs on the board in the bottom of the first with an RBI single, then helped his team edge back into the game with an RBI single in the bottom of the fifth. Playing everyday for the first time last season, Parra posted a .726 OPS.
Mar 6 - 6:49 PM

Diamondbacks and OF Gerardo Parra avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $4.85 million contract.

Parra requested $5.2 million and was offered $4.3 million from the Diamondbacks when arbitration figures were exchanged last month, so the two sides settled for a little above the midpoint. The 26-year-old was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter and remains under team control through 2015.
Feb 3 - 4:27 PM

Gerardo Parra requested $5.2 million and was offered $4.3 million from the Diamondbacks when arbitration figures were exchanged on Friday.

Expect the sides to meet somewhere in the middle in the neighborhood of $4.75 million. Parra was thrust into an everyday role in 2013, and responded by slashing a respectable .268/.323/.403 while winning a Gold Glove in right field. His value is higher in real baseball than in the fantasy world though, and he remains a fringe option in mixed leagues.
Jan 17 - 10:20 PM

Gerardo Parra has been named the 2013 National League Gold Glove winner in right field.

It's the second Gold Glove in the past three years for Parra, whose first win came as a left field. Parra led all MLB right fielders in "out of zone catches" this season. He beats out the Braves' Jason Heyward and the Reds' Jay Bruce.

Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers acknowledged Sunday that a Gerardo Parra extension is a possibility.

"It just depends on if the price is right," said Towers. "We value him a great deal." Parra is making a $2.35 million salary this season and has two years left of arbitration. An extension would presumably buy out a few of the 26-year-old outfielder's free agent seasons.

Gerardo Parra had a three-run homer and a two-run single Tuesday against the Padres

It was his first career five-RBI game. Parra had driven in four runs on four occasions, most recently in 2012. Typically a top-of-the-order guy, he was batting sixth tonight for the 11th game this season. He's been a big success there, hitting .373 in 51 at-bats.
