3.19.16 - Purdue commit. 6-foot-4, 205-pound, projectable, wide-shouldered, right-handed pitcher. Ranked No. 15 in the 2016 class. One of the most advanced right-handed arms in the 2016 class. Pounded the strike-zone and threw his slider in any count. Presence on the mound; worked extremely fast and efficient; didn’t get phased when runners got on base. Understood where he was at in the lineup. Didn’t waste pitches against the bottom of the order; when he was faced with the middle of the line-up he did a good job mixing his pitches and keeping them off balance. Also, showed his competitiveness after the first two hitters reached base in the 4th inning on infield singles; he proceeded to strike out the next three hitters on an 89 mph fastball, 88 mph fastball and a 73 mph slider. Fastball, pounded the zone, worked mostly straight and sat 85-89 mph throughout his start; mostly 87-89 mph for the first three innings. Slider, feel, 10/4 sweeping shape and plus action at times, 74-76 mph. Only threw his changeups in warmups. Worked mainly straight, occasional fade action.

2.7.16 Super 60 - Purdue recruit. Athletic 6-foot-4, 205-pound frame, projectable build, wide shoulders, plenty of room for physical development. Athletic arm action, loose and quick, over the top slot, works downhill well. Fastball sat 88-89 out of the windup, 90 out of the stretch, mostly straight; more in the tank. Secondary stuff lacks polish, slows arm speed and body down on both slider and changeup. Slider ranged between 74-75, thrown for strikes, lacks depth. Straight change ranged between 77-79 mph.
10.2.15 - 6-foot-4, 105-pound, right-handed pitcher with a strong frame. Currently ranked No. 18 in the IL Class of 2016. Committed to Purdue. Impressive day on the mound for Reds Scout Team striking out 12 in five innings and allowing one walk and no hits. Uptempo delivery with a high leg kick. Works from a high ¾ arm angle with a short, quick arm action. Works downhill. Fastball sat 85-87 topping out at 88 mph early on, settled in at 82-84 later in the outing.
6/18/15 - 6-fot-4, 205-pound right-handed pitcher, typical pitchers frame, wide shouldered. Directional down the mound, squared at landing, used leg lift in stretch. Arm action is loose, and quick, over the top slot. Fastball works downhill, mostly straight four seam, showed ability to control well, 88-90 mph. Curveball ranged 71-75 mph. Changeup flashed advanced action, arm side run, 76-78 mph, good feel.
2.15.15 - 6-foot-4, 205-pound strong and athletic RHP/3B impressed as one of the top arms on the mound at the Preseason All-State Showcase. Parker sat 86-87 mph on the mound from a short, loose, high ¾ to over-the-top arm slot, tall/fall delivery, good rhythm throughout windup, toe down at balance point, loads over rubber with lower half, shoulders work level throughout, lands square with stride in line with home plate. 65-66 mph curveball featured 12/6 shape, slows arm speed. 71-74 mph slider is a future plus pitch, better of two breaking balls, features 10/4 shape, occasional sharp, late break, feel for strikes. 72-74 mph changeup thrown with aggressive arm speed, arm side run for strikes. Parker projects to throw even harder, and is one of the most underrated RHP’s in the 2016 class. Hits from a tall setup, slightly open stance, toe tap stride, hands load smoothly, short, level bat path produced line drives from gap-to-gap during batting practice, 92 mph exit velocity off the tee. Defensively, threw 85 mph across the diamond from third base from short, over-the-top arm slot with accuracy and carry. Average hands fielding the baseball. Ran a 7.61 60.
10.21.14 - 6-foot-3, 200-pound pound physical and projectable right-handed pitcher currently ranked No. 54 in Illinois’ 2016 class possesses ideal workhorse pitcher’s frame. Works from a short, high ¾ arm slot, clean arm action, easy effort, tall and fall type delivery, improved direction and momentum from windup with step back instead of step to the side to begin windup. Shoulders slightly uphill throughout delivery, lands square and athletic with lower half stride direction in line with home plate. Improved power to breaking ball anywhere from 68-76 mph, later break at higher velocity with 11/5 shape. Threw strikes at the bottom of the zone with 73-75 mph change from windup with plus feel and sink. From stretch changeup was 70-72 mph.
6/12/14 - 6-foot-3, 195-pound physical RHP/3B impressed as one of the top two-way talents at the Underclass Trials.  Hit from a slightly open , balanced setup with a smooth load and short, level bat path producing line-drives from gap-to-gap and 77 mph exit velocity.  At third base, showed soft hands playing through the baseball with impressive arm strength across the diamond.  On the mound, Parker worked at 81-84 mph with heavy finish from a short, quick, over-the-top arm action.  Threw a 68-70 mph curveball with 11/5 shape and short, late downward action.  Straight change was thrown for strikes at 68-70 mph.  Parker has a smooth tall-and-fall delivery, but lost some velocity with his fastball by failing to load his lower half out of the stretch.  He will be very interesting to watch over the next two years with his bat and on the mound.
