Latest Update Chris Parmelee hits seventh home run Sun Sep, 07, 03:12 AM
Can play first base or a corner outfield position, which adds value. Has solid run-producing traits. Is also an adept fielder, especially at first base.
Flaws: : Needs to work on his game-to-game consistency in order to maximize production. Must also prove capable of hitting big-league left-handed pitching.
Parmelee is now 6-for-11 with three RBI and one run scored over his last four games, bringing his season line up to .259/.309/.390 with seven home runs and 25 RBI over 228 at-bats. Unless he regains a starting gig on a regular basis in the near future, there is really no reason to look nay further into his recent run. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Parmelee, who has bounced around defensively this season, has not been consistent enough to warrant ownership in any format outside of arguably a daily league play and considering that Joe Mauer's return may not be far behind it is only a matter of time before Parmelee becomes nothing but a player whose name was pretty cool to say.

Parmelee's solo home run in the eighth inning on Friday night was his first since June 18, giving him five long balls on the season. He is now slashing .262/.318/.396 through 164 at-bats, and if he continues to produce with regular playing time could turn into a solid add down the stretch for those in AL-only league formats.

Parmelee looked as if he was going to be the hero of Wednesday's game as his solo-shot broke a 0-0 tie, but the Twins bullpen could not hold the lead as David Ortiz and Mike Napoli would go on to hit back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the 10th to lead the Red Sox to the come from behind victory. Parmelee has played in just eight games this month but raised his June average from .154 to .294 with his three hit performance on Wednesday. He is 5-for-17 in June with four of the hits coming in his last three games where he saw an at-bat.Analyst: Michael Pichan
