GERARDO PARRA RUMORS

Gerardo Parra bringing ‘unique dynamic’ to Rockies

The fact that manager Walt Weiss can often be seen wearing a ‘Parra For President’ T-shirt around the clubhouse tells you a little something about the 2016 version of the Colorado Rockies. “Write-in ticket? It’s not too late,” Weiss joked recently. “It’s a long shot, but let’s go.” Whether it’s Gerardo Parra handing out the T-shirts to his new teammates, or leading...

Arenado hits 11th, Parra homers as Rockies sweep Arizona

PHOENIX (AP) Nolan Arenado has a power-hitting rookie for a teammate who has grabbed a lot of the headlines for the Colorado Rockies this season. Of course, Arenado's performance has been praise-worthy as well. The 2015 All-Star had two hits, including his major league-leading 11th home run, and three RBIs in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. He is hitting .305 and...

Don’t test the arm of Gerardo Parra; Jay Bruce tested it and failed

A huge key to being a big league outfielder is having a strong arm. Colorado Rockies outfielder Gerardo Parra showed his off Monday night in Cincinnati, and the Reds’ Jay Bruce was his latest victim. Bruce sent a ball into the gap in left-center in the fifth inning, and at worst, Bruce had a stand-up double. But the ball got away, and Parra seemed to have misplayed the ball off...

Rockies' Blackmon 'perplexed' by team's signing of another OF

Earlier this month, the Rockies agreed to a three-year deal with Gerardo Parra, who spent 2015 with the Brewers and Orioles. The move caught many off guard considering the Rockies already had three quality outfielders in Carlos Gonzalez, Charlie Blackmon, and Corey Dickerson. Naturally, one of those three was a little confused. That man is Blackmon who, while ultimately seeing the...

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...

Milwaukee Brewers: Some final thoughts going into offseason

The Milwaukee Brewers were officially eliminated from playoff contention yesterday, and they lost the first game of Fan Appreciation weekend to the Chicago Cubs by a score of 6-4. Needless to say, it’s a dark time for Brewers fans. The once promising-looking season has now become a heap of bile in our collective throats. But I don’t want to dwell on the negative emotions encircling...

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...
