Parra’s offensive production has dropped off this season, falling about 50 points compared to his career norms, but he remains an excellent defensive corner outfielder capable of handling center field if needed.
Milwaukee may decide to shield him from left-handed pitching in a quasi-platoon with Khris Davis, a righty who’s hit just .232 versus right-handed pitching. Parra is under team control through next season and an outfield with him alongside Carlos Gomez will turn a lot of would-be doubles into outs for Brewers pitchers.
Haniger is 23 years old and hitting just .255 with 10 homers and a .732 OPS in 67 games at Double-A while playing mostly right field. He was one of the Brewers’ better prospects, but is not considered a high-end prospect in general. Banda is a 20-year-old Single-A left-hander with a 3.66 ERA and 83/38 K/BB ratio in 84 innings.
