Rockies | Gerardo Parra in boot

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 08:30:45 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra (ankle) received a cortisone injection and is in a walking boot after suffering a high left ankle sprain Tuesday, June 14. Parra is hoping he can return in two to three weeks. "There is no tear, no fracture, no tendon damage," Parra said.

Fantasy Tip: The injury looked much worse initially. Parra hasn't been terrible but hasn't been great, either, with half his games at Coors Field. He's sporting a .263/.274/.424 slash line with only five home runs and 27 RBI. Keep him stashed in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Ryan Raburn benefits the most in the short-term with everyday playing time but will mainly be useful only against left-handers, which he has tormented in his career.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra going on DL

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 15:31:15 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra (ankle) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a high left ankle sprain, and he'll spend a week in a walking boot. The Rockies haven't made a corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Parra is almost certainly to be out longer than 15 days with his ankle injury. He can be replaced in shallow mixed leagues. Ryan Raburn figures to see a big increase in fantasy value, as he's likely to start mostly every day in left field as a result. Raburn has a .258/.336/.515 slash line with six home runs and 16 RBI. He's a better play in fantasy leagues when he's facing a lefty, though, as he's typically destroyed southpaws in his career.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra likely hitting the DL

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 13:19:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra (ankle) has a left ankle sprain, and there is a "better than 50% chance" he will require a stint on the disabled list, according to manager Walt Weiss. Weiss added that X-rays were negative, but the team is waiting for Parra's MRI results before making a decision on whether he will be placed on the DL.

Fantasy Tip: Parra has been solid with 32 runs, five home runs, 27 RBI and six stolen bases, but his .263/.274/.424 slash line is a disappointment, especially since half his games are at Coors Field. Take a wait-and-see approach, but in shallow leagues, you can replace Parra if he lands on the DL. In that event, Ryan Raburn would likely see an uptick in playing time.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra out Wednesday

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 09:34:51 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra (ankle) is out of the lineup Wednesday, June 15, with OF Ryan Raburn hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn is hitting just .208 this month, and he really hasn't done much since hitting four of his six homers in April. He's a basement consideration against Ivan Nova today, though, because of his lineup and Coors Field.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra sprains ankle, set for MRI

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 22:37:10 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra (ankle) was carted off the field in the third inning on Tuesday, June 14, with what manager Walt Weiss called a sprained ankle. Parra is slated to undergo an MRI on Wednesday, June 15. He was replaced by OF Ryan Raburn.

Fantasy Tip: Weiss says Parra is day-to-day, but that collision looked bad so we'll wait to see what the MRI reveals. Look for Raburn to be the regular left fielder as long as Parra is out, which could give Raburn some NL-only appeal.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra not starting

Sun, 12 Jun 2016 12:17:53 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich Sunday, June 12. OF Ryan Raburn will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has struggled over the last several weeks but has been productive against left-handed pitchers in his career, which makes him an attractive option for some owners in daily fantasy leagues.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out vs. lefty

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 12:17:07 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates left-handed SP Jeff Locke Thursday, June 9. OF Gerardo Parra shifts to right field and is hitting seventh, while OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and is batting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like a routine off day for Car-Go against the southpaw. Raburn is a notorious lefty killer and should be an excellent consideration as a value play in DFS play today. Parra, on the other hand, loses some luster today against the lefty with his move down in the order.

Rockies | Charlie Blackmon, Nick Hundley out

Tue, 07 Jun 2016 15:57:54 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Charlie Blackmon and C Nick Hundley are not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias Tuesday, June 7. OF Gerardo Parra will start in center field, while OF Ryan Raburn will start in left field and is batting second. C Dustin Garneau will start at catcher and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Raburn and Garneau have struggled at the plate over the last seven days, but Raburn has had success against left-handed pitchers and is a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Owners can avoid Garneau in all leagues.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez out vs. lefty

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 16:25:40 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Carlos Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Friday, June 3. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and is hitting cleanup, while OF Gerardo Parra shifts to right field.

Fantasy Tip: Raburn has been a lefty killer in his career, so you should be seriously considering him in daily formats. Parra is hitting a surprising .314 with a home run and nine RBI in 51 at-bats against lefties this year, but tonight isn't the night to run with him in any fantasy formats. Pomeranz has been very tough on lefty sticks this year with his devastating curveball.

Rockies | Gerardo Parra out vs. lefty

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:20:19 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Gerardo Parra is not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP John Lamb Wednesday, June 1. OF Ryan Raburn is starting in left field and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: You'd be foolish not to strongly consider Raburn for your daily lineups tonight. He's a known lefty killer despite his .242 average against southpaws this year. Three of his five homers have come against lefties, and he should be licking his chops against Lamb at Coors Field.
