08/01/2018 - Baseball Factory National World Series at Pirate City - Session 2 (Ages 14-18)
Parker is an athletic and talented 2020 SS prospect that works hard and made several adjustments throughout the week at Pirate City. At SS, Parker is on time with his prep step, he presents a low/early glove, and anticipates the ball off the bat. He shows range on both sides of the ball but needs to increase his overall arm strength for the position. Continuing to practice game like throws in his throwing program will increase his ability to throw from multiple arm angles and on the run. At the plate parker, starts in an open stance, loads his hands back, and creates backside rotation. He sees the ball well and is a gap to gap hitter. He needs to continue to keep a quiet head, attack the inside part of the ball, and hunt the fastball. Parker has a high baseball IQ and will continue to improve with experience. We hope to see his progress in the future.

Parker is a lean, athletic SS who has a promising future on the diamond. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 60 time of 7.07. At SS, defensive abilities are well above average as he displays smooth / clean actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean and presents well out front. He shows off his athletic abilities on his feeds / turns of the double play. Range is a plus as he moves well laterally and covers a lot of ground. Hands / feet work well together as he gets rid of the baseball quickly with throws displaying accuracy and zip across the diamond. At the plate, he shows an open setup. Hands are quick and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. With 2 years to further develop, Parker has a lot of potential with time and room to progress his game.
