08/04/2013 - College PREP - Council Bluffs (Omaha), IA Parker is a lean SS that will graduate in 2016. Foot speed is well above average as indicated by his 7.10 60 time. He attacks ground balls and plays through well with his body. He moves well laterally, flashing range and displays soft / sure hands as he makes the plays. Defensive grade will continue to improve as he works to present hands / glove more out front. Throws are accurate, flashing carry across the diamond as he gets rid of the baseball quickly but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. At the plate, hands are quick, flashing bat speed through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact, mainly to the pull side. For hitting grades to continue to improve, he needs to work to stay inside the ball to utilize all fields. Power numbers will continue to improve as he learns to use his lower half more. With 3 years to further develop, Parker has a lot of potential and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches as he continues to improve.
