News: Parra is 11-for-40 (.275) with a home run and nine RBI through 16 spring games.
Impact: Parra got off to a slow start this spring, but he has heated up of late, tallying all nine of his RBI over his last seven games. He is expected to share the left field duties with Khris Davis during the regular season, but he has played the position sparsely this spring, so it seems that Davis will be the primary left fielder to open the campaign. Parra still figures to see a start or two per week in left, and he is far better defensively than Davis, so he could cut into Davis' playing time at some point if Davis struggles with the bat. Parra will also start here and there in both center and right field when regulars Carlos Gomez and Ryan Braun need a day off.

News: Parra and the Brewers avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $6.2375 million contract Friday, MLB.com's Adam McCalvy reports.
Impact: Parra will likely open 2015 as no better than a part-time outfielder, but he will fetch a hefty salary in his final arbitration-eligible season. Parra and Khris Davis figure to share the playing time in left field for the Brewers, and Parra will also serve as the top reserve in both center field and right field.
