PBR Future Games Preview: 2018 RHP/SS Nick Parker
July 31, 2016
By Greg Williams
Pennsylvania Director of Scouting
On August 4th through August 6th, PBR Pennsylvania will take a select team of players in the Classes of 2018 and 2019 to represent Pennsylvania at the PBR Future Games at Grand Park in Indianapolis, IN.
Players receive exposure unlike any other event for underclassmen. Last year, more than 130 colleges from all over the country were in attendance, including coaches from every Division I power conference in the nation. Only players who have a legitimate shot at being a Division I recruit and who have an interest in the possibility of making a verbal commitment during their sophomore or junior seasons have been considered.

TEAM PENNSYLVANIA SPOTLIGHT: 2018 RHP/SS Nick Parker
Name: Nick Parker
State Ranking: 33
Height/Weight: 6-foot, 165-pounds
High School: Dallastown Area
Summer Team(s): Mid-Atlantic Dirtbags
Most Recent Showcase/In-Game Performances:
Scouting Report: 6-foot, 160-pound righty continues to show development on the mound. Sat 83-84 from a high 3/4 arm slot with a deliberate delivery and loose, clean arm action. Parker should continue to add velocity as his athletic frame matures. The sophomore also showed a solid feel for a 68 mph curveball with 11/5 shape, a 77 mph slider and a 76 mph changeup with good arm speed and some late sink. The curveball is two-plane with late bite and will continue to get better as it is thrown harder.
Right-handed hitter with simple, repeatable swing whose hands work and stay inside the baseball. Ran a 7.11 60-yard dash and posted 89-mph exit velocity. Defensively, he exhibits good body control, plays through the catch well with his feet, and has arm speed that generated throws of 87-mph across the diamond.
