2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
