Gerardo Parra is an athletic looking 6'1/186 L/L OF/LHP from Venezuela. He is a free agent but that should not last long after his performance in Tropicana Field. A lefty who we've seen touch 92-93 he was 91 this time out. He has a lightning fast arm, out of a bigger than necessary delivery. While he is a possible MLB pitcher we like him best as an outfielder. We expect him to become a Big League player as an outfielder. He has a plus MLB RF arm 93 mph and accurate. He has CF type speed and instincts. His OF actions are outstanding. He just flat hits the ball hard every time we see him. His bat is very fast and he has very good natural hitting ability. Top pitchers are always in for a battle when this kid is at the plate. He's an outstanding baserunner as well. He could end up hitting the long ball in pro baseball. This kid needs to be in professional baseball right now, he's too good for the amateur level.
