Parks is a recent conversion arm who has some of the better pure arm speed that you’ll see in this draft class. Listed at 6-foot-2, 165 pounds, some scouts have said he has real 70-grade arm speed, which could allow him to throw 100 mph one day as he continues learning how to pitch and filling out a still-lean frame. Parks has already been up into the mid 90s with his fastball and has shown flashes of a sharp and hard slider as well, though scouts acknowledge that the pitch is in its nascent stages—as is much of Parks’ overall game. He is committed to South Carolina and has big-time upside but comes with plenty of risk as well, and a team will likely need to be patient with him if it decides to draft him out of Florence-Darlington.
