adonijah1510 wrote:Parker looking like he has improved through his first 3 starts. Dropped his BB/9 to 2.9 and has raised his SO/9 to 8.0. Only trouble he seems to have still in Delmarva is getting out lefties who are hitting. 296 with all 4 ER's he's given up this season and 6 out of the 8 runs he's allowed. Righties are only hitting .152 with 2 runs allowed none earned. If he can just get his lefty numbers down im seeing a nice improvement from last season with walks down K's up and no homers allowed so far.
Parker's not the only guy in our system that needs to step up this year. Guys like Brendan Webb, BOBBY Bundy, Jason Esposito, Michael Ohlman, nick Demonico ALL need to show that they're elite prospects or they're going to end up watching other player move ahead of them on the road to Baltimore.

Not calling you out as being wrong ofahn, but that statement implies there is talent behind them. I do not know that to be the case. I say that as so far into the minor league season, there is plenty of disappointment at each level to count. Success, not so much.

On one hand this is where he needs to show that he is far and away past ready for promotion to Frederick. He turns 22 this season and as you said, this is his third go round in the SAL. Either the kid can pitch and is a legitimate prospect or he's minor league fodder to me.

HR/9 is down from 1.2 to 0.5.
BB/9 is down from 5.0 to 4.4.
SO/9 is up from 5.6 to 8.8.
His 3.58 FIP suggests he should be pitching much better than what he is currently doing.
From what I've read he's being more aggressive in the strike zone, but his command isn't what it should be and he's giving up big hits. I'm hoping it will all come together for him because he has the talent to move through the system quickly if he does.
