Gerardo Parra: Bolts for Japan
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract Wednesday with the Yomiuri Giants of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Though Parra didn't have a substantial role for the Nationals during the postseason in the club's run to its first World Series, he proved to be a useful reserve and fill-in starter in the outfield and first base in the regular season. Still, the 32-year-old put together a meager .234/.293/.391 slash line (74 wRC+) across 301 plate appearances, production that likely would have forced him to settle for a lesser salary had he elected to continue his career stateside. Instead, he'll head overseas on a deal worth up to $2.5 million in bonuses in 2020. The contract also contains a $3 million vesting option for 2021.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Sizzling to finish regular season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra went 2-for-2 with three RBI in Sunday's 8-2 win over the Indians.

Parra was the Nationals' top batter during the three-game series to close out the regular season, racking up seven hits -- including four for extra bases -- over the weekend. He'll likely fill a bench role Tuesday for the Nationals' wild-card matchup with the Brewers, but his hot run at the dish could make him manager Dave Martinez's top pinch-hitting option.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Posts three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra went 3-for-3 with a double, a home run and four RBI in an 8-2 victory over the Nationals on Friday.

He's not playing everyday, but after picking up his first hit in weeks Thursday night, Parra exploded for his first three-hit performance since June 1. The home run was also his first since Aug. 7. Parra is batting .224 with eight home runs, 41 RBI, 36 runs and eight stolen bases in 268 at-bats this season.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Back to bench with Eaton returning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

While Adam Eaton tended to a sore right knee, Parra made all three starts in right field for the Nationals during the team's weekend series with Miami, going 1-for-13 with a run scored in those contests. Eaton received the green light to rejoin the lineup for Monday's series opener and is expected to play on an everyday basis moving forward, likely closing the door on Parra's path to steady at-bats.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Back to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Parra drew starts in each of the past three games, seeing action at all three outfield spots. In spite of the recent surge in playing time, Parra seems unlikely to keep receiving regular starts while all of Adam Eaton, Victor Robles and Juan Soto are reasonably healthy.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Socks seventh homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the Giants.

Facing the team that waived him in early May, the 32-year-old gave Joe Ross and the Nats bullpen all the offense they would need with his third-inning blast off Shaun Anderson. Between the two clubs, Parra is slashing .249/.308/.415 with seven homers and 36 RBI in 87 games.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Gets second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra will start in center field and bat seventh Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

After manning first base in Saturday's 18-7 loss, Parra will stick in the lineup for a second straight contest, this time moving into the outfield for a resting Victor Robles. The Nationals placed Howie Kendrick (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Sunday, potentially opening up a more consistent path to playing time for Parra as the only backup to Matt Adams at first base.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Batting second Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra will start in right field and bat second Thursday against the Marlins.

Parra will spell Adam Eaton in the outfield for the Independence Day game in what marks the former's first start since June 23. The veteran has been holding down the Nationals' fourth-outfielder role since Michael Taylor was demoted to the minors last week, but the 32-year-old shouldn't be counted on to see much more than the occasional spot start or pinch-hitting appearance.

June 20, 2019 09:32 AM
Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Comes up big in matinee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI in a 6-2 win over the Phillies during the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

Getting the start in center field and hitting seventh, Parra launched a solo shot off Cole Irvin in the eighth inning to help put the game out of reach. It was the 32-year-old's only start in the last five games, including Wednesday's nightcap, and he's now slashing .239/.282/.478 with four homers and 14 RBI in 27 games since joining the Nats.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Stuck in slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra replaced Matt Adams (oblique) in the sixth inning of Monday's win over the White Sox, going 0-for-2 and leaving three men on base.

The 32-year-old has cooled down significantly since his big Nats debut, and Parra is now 0-for-14 over his last seven games. If Adams' injury forces him to the IL, look for Howie Kendrick to handle most of the action at first base, at least until Parra finds his way out of this slump.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Blasts three-run homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Reds.

Parra came through during the second inning for the Nationals, and his three-run shot proved to be the difference in the game. Saturday was the 32-year-old's first start since Monday with Matt Adams' return from the injured list causing a drastic reduction in playing time.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Losing work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Mets.

Parra will be on the bench for a second straight game and appears set to see a substantial decrease in playing time following Matt Adams' (shoulder) return from the injured list Wednesday. Adams is expected to handle the strong side of a platoon at first base with Howie Kendrick moving forward, relegating Parra to a full-time reserve role at both that position and in the outfield.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Hits keep falling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

Getting another start at first base, Parra had his second three-hit performance of the homestand. The 32-year-old is slashing .364/.417/.727 with two homers and seven RBI in seven games since joining the Nats, and he should continue seeing regular playing time as long as Matt Adams (shoulder) and Ryan Zimmerman (foot) remain on the IL.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Records three hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra went 3-for-3 with a home run, three RBI, three runs and a walk during a 7-6 victory against the Mets on Thursday.

It had been a rough start to the year for Parra, but he's turned it on since joining Washington. After three hits Thursday, including his third homer, he's now up to a .294 average through five games with the Nationals. He's raised his OPS nearly 100 points since his final game with the Giants, and it looks like Parra will remain involved with semi-regular starts against right-handed pitching.

May 13, 2019 01:12 PM
Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Second straight start at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra will start at first base and bat sixth Sunday against the Dodgers.

After making his Nationals debut as a starting left fielder Friday, Parra stuck in the lineup at first base Saturday with Howie Kendrick getting the day off. Parra played hero in the 5-2 victory, with his eighth-inning grand slam vaulting the Nationals into the lead. According to Byron Kerr of MASN Sports, Kendrick is nursing a sore neck heading into the series finale, so Parra will remain in the lineup for a third straight contest.

Nationals' Gerardo Parra: Lands with Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra agreed Wednesday with the Nationals on a major-league contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The Nationals have at-bats available in the outfield in the near term, with Juan Soto on the injured list with a back issue, although Soto's absence isn't expected to be a lengthy one. Parra will likely only have to beat out Andrew Stevenson to hold onto a reserve role.

May 9, 2019 11:12 PM
Gerardo Parra: Close to joining Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra is "progressing toward a deal" with the Nationals, Sam Fortier of The Washington Post reports.

While Fortier notes that nothing is official, Jose F. Rivera of ESPN reports that Parra is expected to join the Nationals in Los Angeles during the team's upcoming series against the Dodgers, which begins Thursday. The veteran outfielder recently opted for free agency after being designated for assignment by the Giants and subsequently passing through waivers unclaimed. Prior to getting DFA'd, Parra hit .198 with a homer and six RBI in 30 games for San Francisco. The Nationals would have to clear a spot on their 40-man roster for Parra should the two parties ultimately come to an agreement.

Gerardo Parra: Heads to open market
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra elected free agency Tuesday after passing through waivers, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Parra was designated for assignment by the Giants on Friday, and after he went unclaimed on the waiver wire, he was able to elect free agency due to his years of service. He hit .198 with a homer and six RBI in 30 games this season for San Francisco.

May 3, 2019 04:24 PM
Giants' Gerardo Parra: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra was designated for assignment by the Giants on Friday.

The Giants had little reason to keep a veteran around who was struggling to a .198/.278/.267 line. They may be able to find a trade partner, as he's still just 31 years old and owns a .277/.324/.402 career slash line, though those numbers translate to an unimpressive 88 wRC+ when accounting for the fact that he spent the bulk of his career in hitter-friendly parks in Arizona and Colorado. Mike Gerber's contract was purchased in a corresponding move.

May 3, 2019 03:28 PM
Giants' Gerardo Parra: Will be designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parra is expected to be designated for assignment by the Giants, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

The move is yet to be officially announced, but it would appear to be the corresponding transaction for the callup of Mike Gerber, which was also rumored to be imminent Friday. Parra is hitting just .198/.278/.267 on the season, and the Giants have little reason to give at-bats to a struggling veteran while in the midst of a rebuild.
