Latest Update The Diamondbacks are shopping outfielder Gerardo Parra in trade discussions Tue Jul, 29, 09:14 PM
Has a great throwing arm. Makes solid contact consistently well and has speed. Also possessess gap power and the versatility to play all three outfield positions.
Flaws: : Needs to become a better base-stealer by learning pitchers' tendencies. Doesn't have a ton of home-run power. Needs more work vs. lefties.
Parra has been okay this year, but he fills the role of platoon player more than he does everyday player. He is more or less worthless against left-handed pitching as evident by his .214 average, but he does have plenty of worth for a team that is looking for a left-handed bat. He is 27 years old and shouldn't demand a huge return if he is indeed moved.Analyst: David Kerr
Parra has played in seven straight games and is getting a rest. Outfielder David Peralta will take his place. Analyst: Joshua Balay
Parra has five RBI's in his last seven games along with a home run and three runs. The outfielder hasn't been running as much as some would have liked and his .249 average is a disappointment, so the Diamondbacks' outfielder will have to start to heat up soon if he doesn't want to lose playing time.

Who doesn't love the rare home run from Parra? He continues to log quality playing time thanks to the number of injuries the Diamondbacks have right now, so when he comes through like this, it's always a nice added bonus. He's now hit safely in four of his last five games and has the home run but also four RBI and a pair of runs scored. He's low-end from a counting stats perspective, but in deeper leagues where you need six outfielders, you could certainly do worse.Analyst: Howard Bender
