Brewers acquire outfielder Gerardo Parra from D-backs

Les’t go @Brewers

The Brewers like [Gerardo] Parra’s defense at all three outfield positions and his left-handed bat, so they parted with a pair of Minor League prospects to pry him from the D-backs on Thursday, about two hours before the non-waiver Trade Deadline…

Headed to Arizona in the Parra trade was Double-A Huntsville outfielder Mitch Haniger, who was ranked No. 8 on MLB.com’s list of the top Brewers prospects before the deal, plus 20-year-old left-hander Anthony Banda, who was drafted by the D-backs in 2011 but did not sign. The Brewers took Banda in the 10th round of the Draft the following season…

Parra, who is batting .259 with six home runs and 30 RBIs in 104 games this season, has one more year of arbitration eligibility remaining after this season. The 27-year-old has started mostly in right field this year, but Ryan Braun is a fixture there for the Brewers, Carlos Gomez is entrenched in center field and Davis is playing his first full Major League season in left. Ideally, Parra will spell each of those starters while providing insurance against injuries for Gomez, who has battled a back issue of late, and Braun, who has managed thumb, back and rib cage ailments at various times this year…

Parra is earning $4.85 million this season and would see that salary rise for 2015 if the Brewers go through arbitration with him.
