Gerardo Parra's future value

It's easy to overlook Gerardo Parra. He's 5-foot-11 and doesn't hit a lot of homers or steal a lot of bases. He plays on an Arizona team that doesn't get a ton of national exposure, and really until this season he hadn't found a home in the Diamondbacks' outfield.

Even if you take all that into account, games like last night's against San Francisco -- which felt like a personal defensive highlight reel for the 26-year-old Venezuelan -- are reason to stop and ponder if a big pay day might be in Parra's future.
