Gerardo Parra among those struggling for Arizona


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra has been hitting a bit like many of his teammates recently - and that's not good.

He does, however, rank second on the team with 11 runs on the season.

Gerardo Parra making improvements vs. LHP


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2014) Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra adjusted his stance in the offseason with the intention of improving his performance against left-handed pitching. After one game, the change seems to have helped.

Parra got halfway to his RBI total against lefties from a year ago in one game Monday, as he drove in two runs against Giants starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner, one of the league's best lefties.

"I feel more comfortable against them," Parra told MLB.com. "I don't put too much pressure on myself against them now."

He went 1 for 3 in the game and has one hit in each of the first three games to open the season.

Diamondbacks, Gerardo Parra discussing extension


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2013) The Diamondbacks and outfielder Gerardo Parra are discussing a contract extension, the Arizona Republic reports.

Parra, 26, has two years of arbitration eligibility remaining before free agency. His .268/.325/.401 line hardly differentiates him from other corner outfielders, but he plays exceptional defense and owns one of the best arms in the National League. Parra is earning $2.35 million in 2013.

(8/28/2013) Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra knocked in five runs Tuesday against the Padres.

Gerardo Parra revving back up offensively


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Gerardo Parra's numbers closer to the norm


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2013) Fantasy owners continue to dump Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra onto waivers, and I must agree that's a wise move. Parra has been in decline since late June, batting .137 (14 for 102) in his last 29 games, and his numbers are finally where they should be.

If you look at Parra's career slash line -- .278/.400/.733 -- it's pretty close to his slash line in 2013 -- .270/.400/.736. It seems Parra's recent slide was a market correction to get his numbers closer to the norm.

Parra could be due for a nice hot streak, but it's not you are giving up on a high-end Fantasy outfielder. No one would blame you for looking to make a roster change.


Manager not worried about 'run down' Gerardo Parra

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Parra had played five consecutive games, but manager Kirk Gibson didn't want to take him out of the lineup.
