According to Dan Connolly of the Baltimore Sun, the Baltimore Orioles have acquired Gerardo Parra from the Milwaukee Brewers for RHP prospect Zach Davies.

Parra has a reputation as a solid defender, but he is having a career-year at the plate, posting a batting line of .326/.367/.517 with nine home runs, 31 RBI, and seven stolen bases over 99 games.
The 28-year-old will be a free agent after the season, but he’d be an immediate upgrade in a corner outfield spot.
The Orioles had been having internal debates as to whether to become buyers or sellers at the trade deadline, but this deal shows they want to go all in on making the playoffs again this season.Back to the Baltimore Orioles Newsfeed
