There’s a new #22 in the outfield for the Nashville Sounds.

Freddy Parejo, #22

The last time #22 roamed the outfield at Greer Stadium it was Tony Gwynn, Jr.  Gwynn was traded on May 21st to the Padres.  At the time of the trade the outfielder was hitting .309, 9 RBs, 34 runs, 15 stolen bases for Nashville.

Since being traded to the Padres earlier, Gwynn has played in 41 games, hitting .304 with a .779 OPS. In the three years Gwynn played for the Sounds he batted .248. By all appearances the trade has resulted in Gwynn getting his Big League break.

Sound’s fans last night were introduced to a new #22Freddy Parejo.

In game one (5-3 win), he went 1-for-3 three, striking out once.  He struck out in his first AB then later singled in the 8th inning to left field.

In game two (6-5 loss) Parejo went 0-for-3, one walk, two strike outs; including the game-ending strike out.

Parejo is 24 years old,  6’2″ and 175 lbs. He is two inches taller and 10 pounds lighter than Tony but Parejo is no steal-threat. He rarely attempts a steal.

Freddy bats and throws right.

He was born October 16, 1984, in La Guiara, VZ. Freddy was signed by Brewers as non-drafted free agent on 11/20/03.

Both Parejo and Gwynn were signed in 2003.  Gwynn developed faster than Parejo.

In 66 games with Huntsville in 2009, Parejo (as of July 6th) put up these numbers:

201 PA | 186 AB | 21 R | 43 H | 9 2B | 1 3B | 2 HR | 16 RBI | 1 SB | 1 CS | 12 BB | 35 SO | .231 BA | .275 OBP | .232 SLG | .598 OPS | 60 TB |

Freddy carries a .253 six-season batting average, all with the Milwaukee organization. He displays little power for the long ball.

Parejo has mostly played CF and RF. A .973 lifetime fielding %. He was first brought up to AA in 2008, while spending 2006-07 in Brevard-A Adv.
