The Washington Nationals have checked in on outfielder Gerardo Parra of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Bill Ladson of MLB.com reports. Parra who won a Gold Glove last season, will become the team's fourth outfielder in Arizona with the signing of Jason Kubel to a two-year deal. Parra, who can play all three outfield positions, would help the Nationals if Bryce Harper isn't ready to take over right field on Opening Day or fill the void in center field. Parra made $426k last season and is still under team control through the 2015 season. Image taken by mwlguide and used under the Creative Common License Agreement.
