06/11/2017 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Parker is a strong, athletic LHP/OF who has a promising future on the diamond. At the plate is where he shows best through a crouched setup. Hands are strong and work through an aggressive approach. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing with gap-to-gap pop. In the OF, he displays smooth / clean actions. He utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls but needs to take better routes / angles. He makes the routine play but will benefit by working to get behind balls more to play through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, delivery is sound / repeatable allowing his arm action to work free to the plate. Fastball showed a range of 75-77 mph with arm side run. Breaking ball displays 1/7 shape with gradual break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup with sinking action. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. With 3 years to further develop, Parker has potential with time and room to progress his game.
