Gerardo Parra agrees to deal with Rockies, joins crowded Colorado outfield

The Rockies on Tuesday agreed to terms on a three-year, $27.5 million contract with free agent outfielder Gerardo Parra, according to his agent. The deal includes a fourth-year option for $12 million.

Parra who played for the Milwaukee Brewers and Baltimore Orioles last season, hit .291 with a .328 on-base percentage, a .452 slugging percentage and had 14 home runs and 51 RBIs. He can play all three outfield positions and won Gold Glove awards for his play in left field (2011) and right field (2013).

Where Parra will play is still up in the air. The Rockies already have a full complement of left-handed hitting outfielders, with veteran slugger Carlos Gonzalez in right field, Charlie Blackmon in center and Corey Dickerson in left.
