|Chris Parmelee bats second vs. Red Sox|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(5/17/13) Twins outfielder Chris Parmelee, who is in the midst of a 3-for-28 slump, moved up to the second spot in the lineup Friday night against the Red Sox.
Manager Ron Gardenhire told MLB.com he went with Parmelee against right-hander Clay Buchholz because of his ability to work the count.
"He's not the prototype," Gardenhire said. "I'm not going to ask him to bunt or hit and run, but he can take pitches and is not afraid to see pitches. And if Dozier is on base, he can hook a ball through the hole, too."
Parmelee has a .204/.288/.320 slash line with three home runs and 10 RBI in 103 at-bats.

(5/11/13) Twins right fielder Chris Parmelee entered Friday's game mired in an 0-for-14 slump, going hitless since May 2. However, he delivered a pinch-hit single in the 10th inning to end the skid.
Parmelee, who has a .206 batting average this season, will likely move into a part-time role with Oswaldo Arcia, as he's expected to see regular playing time moving forward.

(5/1/13) Twins outfielder Chris Parmelee hit his second home run of the year Wednesday.
Parmelee finished the game 2 for 4. He drove in a run on a single in the first inning, and added a solo home run in the eighth. He's hitting just .221/.295/.294 this season.
|Chris Parmelee still starting despite offensive woes|

(4/29/13) Twins outfielder Chris Parmelee's multi-hit drought has extended to 10 games after he went 1 for 3 with one RBI Sunday against the Rangers. Parmelee is batting .152 (5 for 33) in his last 10 games, which has dropped his season average from .296 to .217.
Despite his recent slide, Parmelee is still the Twins' primary right fielder. He's started 17 of 21 games in right field for Minnesota.
|Chris Parmelee given night off|
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/13) The Twins gave outfielder Chris Parmelee a night off Wednesday against the Angels, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Oswaldo Arcia started in right field instead.
Parmelee has gone just 1 for 11 in his last three games. He's hitting .237 on the year with a homer and five RBI over 38 at-bats with 11 strikeouts.
|Ron Gardenhire said back in September that he'd like to give Chris Parmelee a chance to play every day in 2013. The Twins' decision to trade Denard Span and Ben Revere this offseason allows their manager to do just that. Now, the onus is on Parmelee to capitalize. He didn't make the most of a lesser opportunity as a part-timer last year, hitting .229 with a .671 OPS, but as a September call-up in 2011, he showed the kind of power and patience that made him a prospect in the minor leagues and should make him a sleeper on Draft Day. Granted, Parmelee starting for the Twins wouldn't be as big of a deal as, say, Wil Myers starting for the Rays would be. He doesn't have the same upside and is no certainty to make the most of what upside he has. But particularly in points leagues, Parmelee's skill set is the kind that could make him surprisingly productive in Fantasy if he delivers. If you're looking for a bat in the late rounds and don't know where else to turn, take a flier on the 25-year-old. (Updated 1/8/13)|
