Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said the team has discussed moving outfielder Ryan Braun to first base. Braun, 30, is hitting .269 this season with 19 home runs and 81 RBI.
Roenicke said the talks with general manager Doug Melvin about moving Braun to first are just preliminary. The move would involve Parra taking over in rightfield.
"We haven't approached (Braun) about it," Roenicke said. "It's just kind of what the needs are. We have Parra here now and we need to figure out what to do with him for next year."
Braun, the 2011 National League MVP, was suspended in 2013 as part of the Biogenesis investigation. He had a positive test for elevated testosterone overturned in 2012 because the urine sample was mishandled.
The Brewers were eliminated from playoff contention on Thursday.
