Profile: Parker signed a minor league deal with the Mariners prior to 2016, pitching for their Triple-A squad and throwing 39.2 innings while striking out 37.3% of hitters en route to a 3.12 FIP. Then he came up for the Mariners, pitched one inning, was designated, and was promptly claimed by the Yankees, for whom he pitched 16.1 innings before seasons end. He was DFA’d again, and on October 5 was claimed by the Angels. Then on November 23, the same thing happened again and he was claimed by the Brewers. In keeping with the apparent trend, the Brewers DFA’d Parker, which led to a slightly different version of the Angels, yet again, claiming him on December 23. So, while it won’t show up on his FanGraphs page, Parker was with five organizations during the 2016 calendar year, pitching actual innings for 2 of them. All of this is more information than the reader probably expected on Blake Parker. It is certainly more information than I expected to write about him… However, it is indicative of the type of player Parker is: a pitcher that teams will happily claim (sometimes more than once) because they believe his right arm could be potentially useful, but not someone they care about enough to actually protect. (Joe Douglas)

The Quick Opinion: Parker spent 2016 with the Mariners, Yankees, Angels, Brewers, and a slightly different version of the Angels than had claimed him previously. While he has succeeded against Triple-A hitting, and even MLB batters over about 90 innings, he is not fantasy-relevant and appears likely to open 2017 in the Angels' minor league system.
