A college performer and undersized lefthander, Parrish doesn’t have elite stuff, but has turned in a solid three-year career at Florida State thanks to impressive pitchability and an above-average changeup. Standing at 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, Parrish throws a below-average fastball that sits in the upper-80s, but his changeup has done enough to keep hitters off of it and help him post a 3.87 career ERA through 45 starts and 269.2 innings—including 14 starts this spring. Parrish has been hit a bit more this spring than usual, and scouts attribute that to added firmness to his changeup, which he corrected during the season. Parrish also has a breaking ball, though it’s a fringe-average pitch with questionable spin. There’s not much upside in Parrish’s profile thanks to his size and velocity, but analytically inclined orgs might want to give him a chance because of his college performance and pitchability.
