It was a praying mantis:

Get it? BUGGING.
All right, anyway.
Paredes came into the game for the eighth in relief of Astros starter Framber Valdez, who had thrown seven strong innings. Despite the praying mantis invading his outing at Dodger Stadium, Paredes retired the A's in order, who struggled all day to get on base minus home runs from Khris Davis and Chad Pinder.
A little aggressive on the brush off if you ask me.
