Chris Parmelee bats second vs. Red Sox


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2013) 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.

Chris Parmelee worth adding to watch list


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2013) I'd recommend Fantasy owners adding Twins outfielder Chris Parmelee to your watch list. It's not time to declare him a must-add, but I'm intrigued enough to see what might develop.

Parmelee homered for the first time this season Saturday and has four RBI in his last three games. Parmelee was supposed to be a breakout Fantasy player last season, but it didn't go according to script.

He hardly had a stellar spring at the plate, so Parmelee continues to fly under the radar. But you know there is potential here after seeing some of the numbers Parmelee posted at certain stops in the minors, so it might not be time to write off the 25-year-old slugger just yet.
