Notes

Comments

Funky delivery with stabbing arm action. Quick hand out front with deception. 88-90 mph fastball gets on hitters quick. Sharp, tight curveball in low 70s gets swings and misses.

2020 DRAFT: The New Mexico native has a physical build at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds with muscular legs and great strength in his lower half. Parker mixes a consistent, plus 73-75 mph curveball and a 90-92 mph swing/miss fastball to both sides and the bottom of the zone. He works down the hill with a high release point which produces very good down angle to the plate. As a third pitch he will flash a 73-76 mph changeup, but rarely had to throw due to his dominant fastball/curveball combo. Scouts have some concern with his arm action, longer in back with a slight pause and cup. However, Parker consistently syncs his arm action, allowing him to pound all sides of the zone and really spin the breaker. His exaggerated finish could lead to some durability questions, but time will tell. Drafted out of high school in 2018 by the Cubs and last June by the Rays in the 27th round, Parker has significantly raised his draft stock with a very strong spring, striking out 64 batters while allowing just 12 hits in 30.1 IP. He is committed to Kentucky for next season and will likely be considered around the third round.

2/14/20: 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, the left-hander throws from an over the top slot with a long, whippy arm swing. His fastball was 93-94 mph with really good command in the top of the zone and to both sides of the plate. He threw his curveball at 85-86 mph, flashing sharp action with 12/6 shape as well as flashing a 73-76 mph changeup.

2/7/20: Parker overwhelmed Northwest Florida State for five innings, striking out 12 and generating buckets of swing/miss via both his fastball and curve. He has a physical build at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds with muscular legs and great strength in his lower half. Parker allowed one base hit, an infield single off the end of the bat, and walked one during his start. He mixed a consistent, above average 73-75 mph curveball and a 90-92 mph swing/miss fastball to both sides and the bottom of the zone. Worked down the hill with a high release point and produced very good down angle to the plate. Scouts have some concern with his arm action, longer in back with a slight pause and cup. However, on this look, Parker consistently synced his arm action with his delivery, allowing him to pound all sides of the zone and really spin the breaker. The exaggerated finish could lead to some durability questions, but time will tell. Drafted out of high school in 2018 by the Cubs and last June by the Rays in the 27th round, Parker has significantly raised his draft stock with two strong starts to begin this spring. More outings like this one and Parker is sure to be considered during the middle to early rounds on Day Two. He is committed to Kentucky.

10/14/19: 6-foot-3, 195-pound left hander has a slow deliberate delivery, has some funk on the front side with his glove, does a great job driving off the rubber and getting down the mound. Fastball will was up to 92 on the day seen, and paired it with a curveball at 72-75 mph with some depth. Parker was able to get swing and miss after swing and miss with his fastball on the day, it plays higher than the 92 mph on the radar gun. (Haig)

Feb 2019 Tournament of Champions
Long limbed, projectable pitcher’s frame at 6-foot-4, 195-pound. The left-hander works from a high-¾ slot with a long arm swing and downward stab out of the glove. Tilted shoulders and high glove side create deception for the hitter, allowing for tilt on his fastball at 87-90, especially down and in to RHH’s. Curveball has 1/7 shape with deep break at 71-75 and is a nice change of pace from the fastball. Slider has shorter, late breaking snap to finish at 78-81 mph. Flashed what looked like a changeup or two at 80-81 mph.
