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. Aug 9 - 1:07 AM

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.
Aug 5 - 11:49 PM

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.
Jul 31 - 2:02 PM

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.
Jul 29 - 8:53 PM

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.
