Kyle Parker broke his hand on a HBP in the second game of the season in the CAL
April .500/.600/.500 1.100 OPS
May .236/.295/.403 .698OPS
June .298/.445/.500 .945OPS
July .378/.473/.622 1.095OPS
August .284/.392/.661 1.053OPS
in sixty seven second half games he hit .326/.431/.628 with 19HR so while it isn’t proof that certainly looks like someone recovering from an injury.
Darnit, I always miss these and they are awesome. Mike, if you read this I wanted to ask you why you don’t think Paxton is in the same league as Hultzen and Walker? Jason Churchill of Prospect Insider stated that Paxton may end up the best of the three. I’m not trying to create a problem between prospect guys or anything but as a Mariners fan who isn’t a scout, I’m pretty confused. I know scouts have different opinons but this one stumps me as to the disparity between the two.

I asked this question today…
Comment From Tai Juan on
What did James Paxton do (or not do) this year to merit being rated so low?
From what I’ve been told, he’s just OK. Paxton is not as talented as Hultzen or Walker
why would the Brewers deal their future SS who they just obtained in the Greinke deal?
I think the talk of the Snakes needing or even wanting an ace to anchor that staff is overblown. Their rotation is pretty deep as it is. I think settling the Upton situation, getting healthy, and the left side of their IF are their big issues to resolve and they should be fine next season.
I was asked the question about Parker because I’ve seen him multiple times. CAL numbers for college draft picks are insignificant to me. In my time doing this, they have been about as valuable as toilet paper on the whole. I think it was in a chat last off-season where I mentioned I would not be surprised if Kyle Parker hit 40 HR in the CAL. I was expecting a monster year and my feelings about him were mixed.
