Brewers' Aramis Ramirez, Gerardo Parra in the starting lineup
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez and outfielder Gerardo Parra will start Wednesday against the Reds, the team announced.
Ramirez, who got the day off Tuesday and was replaced by Jason Rogers, is hitting just .149 with two doubles and three RBI in 47 at-bats. Parra is back in the lineup after Logan Schafer got the start Tuesday. Parra is hitting .161 with three doubles and two RBI in 31 at-bats this season.
Brewers' Parra fills in for injured Carlos Gomez on Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/16/15) Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez was not in the starting lineup Thursday against the Cardinals after injuring his hamstring Wednesday. On Thursday, Gerardo Parra became the first player besides Gomez to start in center field for Milwaukee this season.
Gomez is batting .235 (8 for 34) with one home run, four doubles and six RBI in eight games. Parra, who is batting .176 (3 for 17) with no RBI and two doubles in seven games, has a .333 average (3 for 9) in his career against John Lackey, who is starting for St. Louis.
Gomez is headed back to Milwaukee on Thursday for more tests, per MLB.com. After Thursday's game, the Brewers head to Pittsburgh for a three-game series.
"Certainly we're not going to see him out there [Friday] or the next day, so it is," manager Ron Roenicke said. "When you talk about a leadoff guy who can do what he can do, and in center field, yeah, it's concerning. We know offensively we need to get things going, and we're losing a guy who has a chance to do a ton for you offensively."
Gomez said is hamstring is "more sore" Thursday than after injuring it Wednesday, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. He added the soreness is low on his hamstring and near the back of the knee.
Brewers' Ryan Braun (ribcage) not in lineup, Gerardo Parra starts
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockies.
Braun suffered a ribcage strain in Monday's loss and was set to be re-evaluated Tuesday. Gerardo Parra will take his place in right field and bat sixth against Jordan Lyles and the Rockies.
“Got an MRI, very encouraged by the results," Braun said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Hopefully it’s something that’s only a day or two. It’s something I’m happy about.
“If I had to guess, I would say it’s more intercostal than it is oblique. But I’m not a doctor."
Manager Ron Roenicke said before Tuesday's game that he hopes Braun will be back in the lineup Wednesday.
Brewers test out Gerardo Parra at first, Luis Jimenez at catcher
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is checking out his options around the field defensively this spring, reports MLB.com. Regular outfielder Gerardo Parra is getting some work at first base and third baseman Luis Jimenez is being looked at as an emergency catcher.
"Trying to figure out what can happen during ball games," Roenicke said. "If [Parra's] really good at it and Lind's down for a couple days, you just don't know. He looks great. He works at it all the time. Getting him more experience with all the situations that can come up in a ball game."
Jimenez caught a bullpen session Sunday and is competing for a bench role.
"If he's going to be on our squad, it's nice to have somebody who can do that job," Roenicke said. "He's been going out and warming up pitchers between innings. He's pretty good at it."
Gerardo Parra to get work at first base for Brewers
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/10/15) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said last week that he had to find ways to get Gerardo Parra in the lineup. One of those options will be at first base.
Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Parra will be working at first base as an "emergency option", despite never having played an inning at the position in his career.
“The manager ask if I want to play first base and I say yes,” Parra said.
"He takes ground balls there all the time. He did last year, too. He told me last year he could play first," Roenicke said.
|2014 summary: Valued more for his defense than his offense, Gerardo Parra at least had the benefit of regular at-bats with the Diamondbacks, but that all changed when he was traded to the Brewers at the deadline. With his playing time threatened and his doubles pace just about cut in half from 2013, he was more or less just a space-filler even in Head-to-Head points leagues, his better format.|
Playing time status: Of course, for all the hand-wringing that may have accompanied Parra's move to the Brewers in leagues deep enough for anyone to care, he didn't end up losing that much playing time. Khris Davis was so bad down the stretch that the Brewers basically platooned them. It wasn't a strict lefty-righty thing, but because Parra bats left-handed, it could become that.
2015 outlook: Among the things Fantasy owners actually care about, Parra does only one well: He hits doubles. And even those, only Head-to-Head owners care about. Of course, anyone who gets everyday at-bats matters in NL-only leagues, but because he isn't assured them with his current team, he's shaping up to be just a low-end player even in those formats.
