Drafted in the 21st round (627th overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2017
After sitting in the mid-80s last summer and fall, Parke planned to walk on at Clemson next year, but he took a step forward this spring and received a scholarship offer from South Carolina. He's a big, physical lefty who got stronger over the winter, now standing at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds. His fastball sits in the high 80s and touches 90-91mph. His curveball is slurvy and could use tightening, but it shows potential as a power pitch. He also shows good feel for a changeup. He isn't considered signable now but will bear watching because of his size and arm.
