— Player Notes
Advice: Two months later, the Orioles have replaced Alejandro De Aza with another Alejandro De Aza, but one who happens to be in the midst of a career season. Or, at least, a career three months so far. Parra was hitting .328/.369/.517 for Milwaukee, a huge improvement over his .265/.316/.387 lines from the previous two seasons. He's never played in the AL before, so he's facing a transition, and most likely, he'll begin to revert to something closer to his career numbers. That still probably makes him the Orioles' best option in left field against right-handers. He's just not really likely to be a difference maker.Fri, Jul 31 Rotoworld
Advice: CBS Sport' Jon Heyman says the deal is done, pending physicals. Parra has turned into a nice trade chip for Milwaukee by batting .328/.369/.517 with nine homers and nine stolen bases this season. The O's are also after Ben Revere as they look to remake their corner outfield spots.

Advice: It's been reported that they're also after Ben Revere, as they could use help at both corner outfield spots. Parra entered the season as a highly paid fourth outfielder but has turned into a nice trade chip for the Brewers by batting .328/.369/.517 with nine homers and nine stolen bases.

Advice: The Orioles continue to believe that they are in the thick of the race for one of the Wild Cards in the American League, and Parra would certainly be an upgrade both offensively and defensively. As the O's don't have the necessary prospects to land any of the top outfielders on the market, Parra seems like a tremendous fit.

Advice: Parra led off the game with a double and came around to score in a two-run opening frame. He led off the third with a single and scored, then tripled and scored in the seventh. Parra is having a career year, batting .324/.365/.517 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, 52 runs scored, and seven stolen bases. He could be wearing a new uniform in the next two days as the trade deadline approaches.Tue, Jul 28 Rotoworld
Advice: It's just a routine day of rest for Parra against opposing left-hander Patrick Corbin. Khris Davis will start in left field and bat sixth for the Brewers on Friday.

Advice: Parra led off the bottom of the first inning with a triple, later scoring a run, and he managed to do it again with an RBI triple in the eighth. The outfielder is having a heck of a season after starting the year in a part-time role -- after Tuesday's game, Parra is hitting .315/.352/.514 with nine homers, 31 RBI, 45 runs scored and six steals. He's playing well enough that he may be playing his way out of Milwaukee and onto a championship contender by next week's trade deadline.Tue, Jul 21 Rotoworld
Advice: This confirms a report from Newsday's Marc Carig, who hears that the Mets are also keeping an eye on big names like Justin Upton and Carlos Gomez. Parra figures to be very popular leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, but his price tag could be lower than Upton or Gomez. Known for his solid defense, the 28-year-old is having a huge year at the plate this season, batting .313/.348/.500 with nine home runs, 30 RBI, and six steals over 90 games.
