PHOENIX (AP) - The Arizona Diamondbacks optioned outfielder Cole
Gillespie to Triple-A Reno and called up outfielder Gerardo Parra before their game against the San Francisco Giants.
Gillespie hit .256 with a home run and four RBIs in 17 games with Arizona this season but was just 2 for 13 in his last six games.
Manager A.J. Hinch says Parra was expected to be available for
Wednesday's game and "more than likely" would start Thursday.
Parra hit .417 with a home run and seven RBIs in nine games with Reno after being sent down May 8. In 26 games with the Diamondbacks this season, Parra hit .247 and had seven RBIs.
