The Milwaukee Brewers have avoided arbitration with outfielder Gerardo Parra, signing him to a one-year deal worth $6.2 million.
Parra, 27, was acquired from the Arizona Cardinals in a trade deadline deal last season.. He posted a .268 batting average with three home runs and 10 RBIs in 46 games for the Brewers, and .finished with a 261 average with nine homers and 40 RBIs over in 2014 (150 games).
Providing a left-handed jolt for the Brewers off the bench, Parra gave the Brewers a second Gold Glove outfielder to work with alongside Carlos Gomez.
In addition to signing Parra, the Brewers also avoided arbitration with backup catcher Martin Maldonado, agreeing to terms on a two-year, $1.95 million pact.
With both Parra and Maldonado signed and ready to go, the Brewers will avoid arbitration with all of their eligible players in advance of the 2015 MLB season.Back to the Milwaukee Brewers Newsfeed
