Gerardo Parra: Latest News, Rumors, Speculation Surrounding Free-Agent of

Published by Bleacher Report on Mon, 11 Jan 2016

Free-agent MLB outfielder Gerardo Parra has narrowed down his desired teams to three as he prepares for the next phase of his career.Continue for updates.Agent Says Parra Wants 3-Year ContractMonday, Jan. 11Patrick Saunders of theDenver Post passed along the details regarding Parra's demands, adding the Colorado Rockies are among the three clubs the 28-year-old is considering.
