Julio Parra is a solidly built 5'11/200 catcher from Venezuela. He is a free agent. He is a very polished defensive catcher with a quick strong accurate arm and very good feet. He even runs fairly well. His receiving ability and quickness behind the plate are definitely pro level and he shows leadership skills. He hits very well with a short line drive swing. He hit several hard line drives against the high level pitching in Tropicana Field. He's strong, durable and shows a very good overall feel for the game. He deserves a shot in pro ball.

We had a very short look at Parra, who was in the United States from his native Venezuela to catch his teammates Gerraldo Parra and Alirio Ledezma in scheduled workouts with pro scouts during the week following the World Showcase. Parra roped one rocket into the left field corner that was one of the hardest balls hit all weekend and showed a nice body and athletic presence. This looks like a young catcher that should be seen some more. This kid is very good!
