Description: Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra had five hits in seven at-bats Tuesday night.
Insight: Parra doesn't hit for average (.265) or power (5 HR, .693 OPS) and doesn't steal much (5 SB), so he's not a strong fantasy option outside NL-only leagues.
 
6/22/2014 11:17:00 AM
Description: Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra is only 2-for-15 against Giants lefty Madison Bumgarner.
Insight: That's who he faces on Sunday. As a general rule, Parra shouldn't be starting against left-handers. This season he's been particularly bad against them, going 12-for-68 (.176 AVG) with 17 K's.
 
6/4/2014 11:49:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks right fielder Gerardo Parra is 5-for-11 in his career against Rockies starter Jordan Lyles.
Insight: Obviously that's not a huge body of work but Parra (.271, 5 HR, 20 RBI) seems to have the upper hand in this matchup. If you're looking for outfield help, give him a try on Wednesday.
 
5/22/2014 10:25:00 AM
Description: Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra has hit for the cycle among his career 5-for-9 against Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn.
Insight: Parra can't hit left-handers, but he's batting .292 against right-handers and has a favorable matchup, so could useful on Thursday.
 
3/31/2014 2:24:00 PM
Description: Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra doesn't belong in any fantasy lineups Monday against the Giants.
Insight: That's because he only has one hit in 14 career at bats against Madison Bumgarner. With just 33 HR in 2,258 career at bats, Parra doesn't offer much in the way of fantasy value.
 
9/15/2013 11:07:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra is 3-for-21 (.143) against Colorado's Jhoulys Chacin.
Insight: Parra has had a similar season to last year, hitting .267 with a .727 OPS. However, despite getting 606 plate appearances and reaching base at a .326 clip, Parra has just 10 steals (10-for-20 on SBs). He stole 15 bases in 430 plate appearances last year. Sit him Sunday against Chacin.

Description: Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra went 5-for-9 with a double, a walk and three RBI Saturday against the Phillies.
Insight: Parra is hitting .233 (28-for-120) since the All-Star break after hitting .285 before the break. He's only an option for NL-only owners.
 
Cold7/21/2013 1:25:00 PM
Description: Arizona right fielder Gerardo Parra faces a difficult task Sunday against the Giants. He'll have to hit against lefthander Madison Bumgarner, a pitcher he has traditionally struggled against.
Insight: Struggle may not even be the right word. To be blunt, Parra has been downright useless against Bumgarner with six strikeouts and only one hit in 12 previous at bats. His current 2-for-28 slump doesn't make us any more confident.

Description: D'Backs right fielder Gerardo Parra fell and hit his head trying to make a catch in the eighth inning Monday against New York and is doubtful for Tuesday's game.
Insight: The team said there was no concussion, but he's likely to sit at least one game. Parra has been a nice surprise this season for a No. 4 outfielder. Due to injuries he's played in 81 games and is batting .301 with seven homers, 26 RBI, 47 runs and an .811 OPS.

Description: Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra picked up three hits and had two RBI and a walk in six at-bats Wednesday against the Dodgers.

6/8/2013 11:00:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra is hitless in 10 at-bats versus Giants starter Madison Bumgarner with five strikeouts.

Insight: Due to injuries to Cody Ross and Adam Eaton, Parra has had the chance to play every day, and he has responded with a .307 average and 21 extra-base hits and a .832 OPS in 202 at-bats. Consider him day-to-day.

4/30/2013 11:24:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra is getting to play everyday and proving to be a great asset to both Arizona and fantasy owners hitting .305 with 18 runs scored, but Tuesday is a poor matchup which should be avoided.
Insight: Parra is hitless in 10 career at-bats against Madison Bumgarner including five strikeouts.
 
4/24/2013 10:37:00 AM
Description: Diamondbacks outfielder Gerardo Parra is getting to play everyday with the injuries to Jason Kubel and Adam Eaton, but Wednesday's matchup is a poor one for him as he's hitless in 10 at-bats versus Giants starter Madison Bumgarner with five strikeouts.
Insight: Parra was supposed to start the season as the fourth outfielder but the injuries to Eaton and Kubel have allowed Parra to start 19 of 20 games. He's batting .291 with 14 runs scored.

2/16/2013 3:51:00 PM
Description: Arizona outfielder Gerardo Parra hopes to be part of a four-man group and get a solid share of the available at-bats. Manager Kirk Gibson told MLB.com that he hopes the team can get Parra, Adam Eaton, Jason Kubel and Cody Ross 400-500 at-bats each.
Insight: Kubel and Eaton and Ross figure to start the season as the outfield, but Parra was a solid contributor last year (.273, 58 runs, 7 HR, 36 RBI, 15 SB) and could change the manager's plans if he has a hot spring.
