SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Gerardo Parra took his physical Sunday morning, weighing in at 206 pounds. That’s 12 pounds lighter than his check-in weight last spring training. But pounds are not the only thing the Rockies’ veteran outfielder wanted to lose this offseason. He sought to shed the memories of his frustrating 2016 season. “I’m not thinking about that at all, that was...

Rockies Acquire Future Pitcher by Signing Gerardo Parra

All along, the thought’s been that the Colorado Rockies were pretty likely to trade one of their three left-handed hitting outfielders before the start of the regular season. So naturally, they kept them all and then went out and signed another. It won’t stay like this for long. The Rockies agreed to terms with Gerardo Parra on Tuesday afternoon on a three-year deal worth $27...

Gerardo Parra’s signing could spell the end for Carlos Gonzalez with the Rockies

Today, the Colorado Rockies signed free agent outfielder Gerardo Parra to a three-year, $26 million contract. It’s a modest contract and one that could easily fit both a contending team or a rebuilding team. Right now, it’s possible for the Rockies to be either. Or at the very least, it’s possible for the Rockies to try to be either. Whether they could actually competing is...

Seeking Clarity on Gerardo Parra’s Defense

Gerardo Parra‘s out there right now as a free agent and soon, a team will sign him to play somewhere in the outfield. Plenty of teams have been linked to Parra, and understandably so. He’s entering just his age-29 season, he’s something like a league average hitter who started to lift the ball to the pull field and hit for some power last year, he’s played all three outfield...

Gold-glover Parra can hit a bit, too

MILWAUKEE -- It didn't take Gerardo Parra long to show what he can bring to the Milwaukee Brewers down the stretch. Parra made a quick impression on the home fans in his debut at Miller Park on Tuesday, blasting a go-ahead home run in the bottom of the seventh before making an impressive sliding catch in foul territory in a critical moment in the top of the eighth inning.  No, Parra...

Gerardo Parra’s Further Impact for Brewers

In the heat of a pennant race, teams often let a rival’s actions shape their own decisions. As a result, when St. Louis fired a shot across the Brewers’ bow by bolstering their rotation, Milwaukee needed to make a countermove. Of course, Doug Melvin’s retort – gaining Gerardo Parra in exchange for two minor leaguers – stands stratospheres below the Cardinals’ acquisitions...

WATCH: D-Backs fan runs onto field, gets away from security

One particular Arizona Diamondbacks fan was so excited for the second half of the season to begin that he ran onto Chase Field on Friday night. During the ninth inning of the Cubs-Diamondbacks game, this fan wanted a selfie with Gerardo Parra so he took to the outfield—cell phone in hand. He didn’t get the selfie he was seeking, but did meet the venue’s security crew. As they...
