I was in Aberdeen last week and saw Bennett Parry
strike out 10 in 4 innings (he struck out the side in order back to back innings). I wasn’t familiar with him before but I came away a true believer. I’ve never seen such a tall pitcher (6’6 lefty) hide the ball so well. By the time the batter was able to pick up the ball it was more than half way to the plate. I haven’t heard him mentioned much when talking about top prospects. Do you know where he fits into the O’s plans? I also saw the other lefties pitch for the Ironbirds (Rutledge and Coffey) and Parry was by far the most talented. I saw that Rutledge was listed as a top 20 prospect but Parry wasn’t mentioned. Rutledge is a great prospect but if you saw them both in person back to back I believe you’d come to the conclusion that Parry is more impressive and has a much higher up side.
