Grading every Rockies’ first round pick in franchise history

2010 – Kyle Parker OF (26th overall) Clemson University

Parker was a two-sport star in college at Clemson, quarterback of the Tigers’ football team and star of the baseball team. He has put up good numbers while climbing through the farm system, hitting for power and average. He made his Major League debut last season and played in 18 games, hitting just .192 with no home runs and one RBI.

Numbers with Rockies: .192, 0 HR, 1 RBI, .231 SLG

Where Are They Now? Parker will likely start next season in Triple-A. He has a lot of potential and could turn out to be a good player if the Rockies give him a little more time to develop.

Grade: B. Too early in the game to say but he has put up promising numbers in the minor leagues and should get more Major League at-bats this season.
