MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers have acquired outfielder Gerardo Parra from the Arizona Diamondbacks for a pair of minor leaguers.

The Brewers added a left-handed bat and two-time Gold Glove winner Thursday ahead of the non-waiver trade deadline. The NL Central leaders are sending outfielder Mitch Haniger and left-hander Anthony Banda to Arizona.

Parra was hitting .259, about 25 points lower than his career average, with six homers and 30 RBIs. The Brewers could use him in a platoon with righty bat Khris Davis, who is hitting just .232 against right-handers.

The 23-year-old Haniger was playing for Double-A Huntsville. He was Milwaukee's No. 3 prospect, according to Baseball America. He was hitting .255 with 10 homers and 34 RBIs.

Banda, 20, was 6-6 with a 3.66 ERA for Class A Wisconsin.
