2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2015

Someone in your NL-only league may have speculated on Parker for saves last year, and that owner would have done well if he were in a Triple-A league, as Parker saved 25 games for Iowa in 2014. To be fair, Parker did have a nice 21-inning run with the Cubs. Ignore the 5.14 ERA and look at some of the other numbers: 24:4 K:BB ratio, an inflated .374 BABIP, and a low 64 percent strand rate. It may not look like it, but Parker may have pitched better than teammate Neil Ramirez last year. Throw in his strong performance with the Cubs in 2013, and we may have a decent sleeper on our hands. If you don't believe in Hector Rondon or whoever the Cubs trot out there in the ninth inning this April, throw your dart at Parker, not Ramirez.

2014

After starting the year in the minors, Parker pitched in relief for the Cubs during the last four months of the season and proved he belonged in the big leagues. A 55:15 K:BB ratio helped contribute to a 2.72 ERA and 1.165 WHIP in just 46.1 innings. He had a particularly-good six-week midsummer run when he got six holds and his only save, but despite pitching well the rest of the way, he only got one more hold, indicating that his team maybe didn't trust him in key situations. With a new manager in town and no established closer signed yet, Parker could get the opportunity to win the ninth-inning job, so keep an eye on him this spring.

2010

The Cubs' Triple-A closer, Parker struck out 58 in just 51 innings and racked up 22 saves. He also did a fine job of keeping the ball in the park with just three home runs allowed. His biggest weakness is command - 27 walks is higher than we would like, but so long as the ball stays in the park, and the strikeouts are there, we can live with it. He'll vie for a bullpen role this spring with the big-league club.
