Athletics' Chris Parmelee: Hits first homer of spring Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee smacked a solo home run in his only at-bat during Monday's 3-1 Cactus League loss to the Reds.

The 29-year-old first baseman has quietly had a decent spring, with Monday's homer bringing his line to .278/.278/.500. A non-roster invitee, Parmelee had an eight-plate appearance big league stint in 2016 with the Yankees in which he smacked a pair of round-trippers, and he owns a .248/.313/.405 career line over 311 major league games.

Athletics' Chris Parmelee: Agrees to minor league deal with A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee signed a minor league contract with the A's on Wednesday that includes an invite to spring training, Jane Lee of reports.

The Yankees gave Parmelee the call in June after Mark Teixeira hit the DL, but he didn't even make it a week before going down with a hamstring injury. Parmelee then battled back spasms late in the year, but if healthy come the spring, the 28-year-old could make a push for a role at first base. He's hit .248/.313/.405 in parts of six major league seasons.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Lands on 7-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee was placed on the 7-day DL on Thursday after experiencing back spasms, the Scranton Times-Tribune reports.

Parmelee had recently been activated off the DL after missing two months with a hamstring issue, but he was forced to leave Wednesday's contest with discomfort in his back and it will now sideline him for at least a week. The first baseman had been hitting just .200 since being sent to the Triple-A club, and with the Yankees seeming committed to giving younger players chances, Parmelee may not have returned to the big leagues this year even if healthy.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee (hamstring) was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list Saturday and outrighted to Triple-A.

The veteran had been out on a rehab assignment since early August and the club deemed him healthy enough to come off the DL on Saturday, but the Yankees also took him off their 40-man roster. He has slashed .255/.339/.448 at Triple-A this season.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: On rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee (hamstring) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre last week, the Wilkes-Barre Times Leader reports.

Parmelee has been sidelined since early June with a hamstring strain, but he appears to be nearing a return as he's worked his way up to minor league action for five games. He's racked up four hits -- including a home run -- in that span. It's unclear if the first baseman will rejoin the major league club when he's ready, but even if he is kept in the minors, Parmelee will likely get another chance in the big leagues when the rosters expand in September.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Will not return until after All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee (hamstring) didn't return to the team before the All-Star break.

Parmelee has been out exactly one month now since he was placed on the disabled list with a Grade 2 right hamstring strain. He was expected to miss at least a month, but has yet to play in any rehab games and will likely need more time before coming back to the Yankees. Before he went down with the injury, Parmelee was 4-for-8 with two home runs in his brief time with the Yankees.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Progressing to working out on treadmill
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee said he hasn't felt any pain in his injured hamstring in about a week, and is working out on a treadmill, Erik Boland of Newsday Sports reports.

Although this is an encouraging sign for Parmelee's recovery, there is still no clear timetable for his return to baseball activities, let alone to the field. In his absence, Rob Refsnyder will continue to be the regular first baseman for the Yankees.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Out at least a month with hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee will miss at least a month with a Grade 2 hamstring strain, Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal reports.

With Parmelee out, Rob Refsnyder will be the everyday first baseman going forward. Parmelee was placed on the 15-day DL earlier Friday and will likely be out until after the All-Star break. He was 4-for-8 with two home runs in his short time with the Yankees in 2016.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Placed on DL with hamstring strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee was placed on the 15-day DL with a right hamstring strain.

Parmelee went in for an MRI after Thursday's game, but manager Joe Girardi had already said he would be shocked if the injury didn't require a stint on the DL. This takes another name out of the Yankees' jumble at first base, with Rob Refsnyder and Austin Romine more likely to get starts barring a roster move.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: To undergo MRI, Girardi expects DL stint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee (hamstring) will go in for an MRI and manager Joe Girardi announced that he would be "shocked" if the first baseman didn't require a stint on the disabled list, Erik Boland of Newsday reports.

Parmelee was helped off the field by the team's training staff Thursday after suffering a right hamstring injury. His status moving forward won't become clear until the results of his MRI come back, but Girardi's comments suggest he could be heading to the DL. Rob Refsnyder, who is a converted middle infielder, has been working at first of late and could be a stopgap at that position until Mark Teixeira returns from the disabled list.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Leaves game with right hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee exited Thursday's game against the Angels with a right hamstring injury.

Parmelee left the field in what looked to be extreme discomfort Thursday, which marks yet another injury at first base for the Yankees. With Mark Teixeira on the DL with a knee issue and the reserve combo of Dustin Ackley and Greg Bird out for the season, an extended absence for Parmelee would leave the Yankees even thinner at first base. A further update on Parmelee's status figures to be made available later Thursday.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: In lineup Thursday against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee is in the lineup Thursday, playing first base.

Parmelee was sensational in Wednesday's contest, going 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in his Yankees debut. He will be batting ninth against Jhoulys Chacin and the Angels on Thursday.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Puts on show in Yankee debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee went 3-for-5 with two homers, three RBI and three runs Wednesday against the Angels.

Parmelee was called up from the minors Saturday when first baseman Mark Teixeira went on the disabled list. The pressure of playing in front of the Yankee faithful in his first start of the season didn't faze the 28-year old. Before his homers, he knocked a fourth-inning double for his first Yankees hit, later scoring on Brett Gardner's RBI single. Parmelee's performance was a night to remember for him, but it's unlikely he'll turn into a valuable fantasy asset this year.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Signs major league contract, recalled by Yankees
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee was called up by the Yankees on Saturday.

Parmelee was added to the roster when Mark Teixeira was placed on the 15-day DL with a knee injury. With Dustin Ackley and Greg Bird also out with injuries, Parmelee could see some time starting at first base. The Yankees could also use Brian McCann or Austin Romine when they aren't catching, or let Rob Refsnyder get a chance at the position. Parmelee posted a .252 average with Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre in 151 at-bats this season.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Reassigned to minor league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee (arm) was reassigned to minor league camp Saturday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

Parmelee had a shortened stint at the Yankees' major league camp after undergoing surgery to repair a broken arm in September. Still, he managed to get 29-at bats there this spring, although he had mixed results. Parmelee had three doubles and only struck out five times, but he otherwise struggled at the plate with a .172 batting average and .226 OBP. He'll head down to minor league camp to get more regular playing time.

Yankees' Chris Parmelee: Signs minor league contract with Yankees on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Parmelee (arm) signed a minor league contract with the Yankees on Monday that includes an invitation to spring training, Jack Curry of YES Network reports.

Parmelee played most of 2015 with the Triple-A affiliate of the Orioles, but he did get a short stint with the major league club in the summer. He hit minor league pitching to the tune of a .314/.386/.444 slash line, but that didn't translate to the majors as his .216 batting average shows. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said that he's likely to play first base at the Triple-A level, which fills the void that Greg Bird left after undergoing shoulder surgery earlier in the month.

by Shawn Krest |

Outfielder Gerardo Parra reported to the Orioles and will be active on Friday, the team announced.

Parra was acquired from Milwaukee at the trade deadline. 

To make room, the Orioles designated infielder Chris Parmelee for assignment. Parmelee was hitting .216 for the Orioles this season.

by Shawn Krest |

Orioles first baseman Chris Parmelee isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game.

Orioles' Parmelee gets a rest after playing in doubleheader Sunday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Orioles first baseman/right fielder Chris Parmelee sat for just the second time in 13 games since his promotion from the minors on Monday against the Rangers.

Parmelee played in both games of Sunday's doubleheader against the Indians. He homered in the second game.

He is batting .302 with one triple, four doubles, four home runs and six RBI in 12 games since being recalled from Triple-A Norfolk. However, he has struck out 13 times, which has included two strikeouts in each of his last five games.
