Paredes signed with the Chicago Cubs as an international free agent in July 2015. He made his professional debut in 2016 with the Arizona League Cubs and posted a .305 batting average with one home run and 26 RBIs in 47 games. He played in three games with the South Bend Cubs that season. He started 2017 with the South Bend Cubs.
On July 31, 2017, Paredes was traded along with Jeimer Candelario to the Detroit Tigers in exchange for Alex Avila and Justin Wilson. The Tigers assigned him to the West Michigan Whitecaps where he spent the remainder of the season. In 124 total games between South Bend and West Michigan he batted .252 with 11 home runs and 70 RBIs. He spent 2018 splitting time between the Lakeland Flying Tigers and Erie SeaWolves where he hit .278 with 15 home runs and seventy RBIs over the course of 123 games with the two teams. He returned to Erie to begin 2019. That summer, Paredes was named to the 2019 All-Star Futures Game. He was selected to play in the Arizona Fall League for the Mesa Solar Sox following the season. He would finish the season with 13 home runs, 66 RBIs, a .282 average, and 57 walks to 61 strikeouts with an OBP of .368.
On August 17, 2020, the Tigers recalled Paredes, and he made his MLB debut later that day against the Chicago White Sox playing third base. In his second at-bat of his career, Paredes hit a bases-loaded, two-RBI single off Gio Gonzalez for his first major league hit.
On August 21 against the Cleveland Indians, Paredes hit a grand slam for his first major league home run. He is the first Tiger player to hit a grand slam for his first major league homer since Brennan Boesch in 2010, and the youngest Tiger to hit a grand slam since Al Kaline in 1954. In 34 games during the 2020 season, Paredes hit .220 with one home run and six RBI.
