Parker continues to show as a prospect with his baseball abilities and did so at the IMG World Seres. At 1B, he shows smooth/fluid actions. He displays proper footwork around the bag and is a quality receiver. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. He utilizes his foot quickness and covers a lot of ground. Throws are accurate with carry (81 mph velocity) to his target. At the plate, he continues to shine through an open setup. Hands are quick (89 mph exit velocity) and work through a level swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach with power showing best to the pull side. Lower half works well through the swing with an aggressive hip turn. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
