In June the Milwaukee Brewers did something that they hadn’t done all year, they broke even. Going 14-14 in the month, the Brewers had their first non-losing month since June of last season. While players like Adam Lind and Ryan Braun were able to get it done at the plate, Gerardo Parra is our June Most Valuable Player. Here is a look at why he brought home our June MVP.

Throughout the entire month, Parra showed why the Brewers have the best fourth outfield option in all of baseball. Not only was Parra able to do things with his stellar glove filling in for both Khris Davis and Carlos Gomez, but he was able to produce at the plate as well.
Appearing in more games than anyone on the roster in the month, Parra batted .308 with an .800 OPS. He also led the team with 33 hits on the month and was able to deliver 11 multi-hit games . Though he is not a big slugger he was also able to add three home runs and 10 extra base hits.
Playing on a team that has long been out of the race, Parra’s hot month was not only a spark to help the team start playing better baseball, but it could have also helped to up his trade value and help him to find his way on a contending team very soon. As a strong defender already, his hot month at the plate could be seen as very valuable to a team looking to add outfield depth to their roster at the end of the month.
