The O's are in the market for a corner outfielder, though if Paredes can prove to be passable defensively that need could be lessened. The 27-year-old slashed .275/.310/.416 with 10 homers and 42 RBI in 363 at-bats for the O's in 2015 while spending the majority of his time as the designated hitter. Sat, Dec 12, 2015 12:56:00 PM

The struggling Jimmy Paredes went 0-for-4 against the Red Sox on Wednesday.

Paredes had a 1.000 OPS on May 19 and still a .900 OPS on May 29, but he's tumbled under .800 now. His playing time will continue to be curtailed until he escapes the slump, and he wouldn't seem to be worth playing in mixed leagues right now.
