It’s not the Parker you were expecting.

Angels GM Billy Eppler continues to add depth to the organization, this time in the form of a minor league deal for former SF Giant outfielder Jarrett Parker. For his career, the left handed hitter owns a .257-.355/.456 slash line through 382 plate appearances.

Parker did not play organized baseball in 2018 as he recovered from a shoulder injury suffered the previous year. If he’s back to health, he should provide the Angels with emergency depth in Salt Lake in the case of an injury to a corner outfielder.

Expect to see him getting playing time in big league camp in Tempe.
