Phillies Pitching Prospect David Parkinson Selected to MiLB’s “Best of the Best” 2018 All-Star Team

Congratulations to Phillies left-handed starting pitching prospect, David Parkinson.  He was just selected to the “best of the best” 2018 All-MiLB Team.  He compiled a brilliant 1.45 ERA in 22 appearances between Lakewood and Clearwater striking out 141 in 124.1 innings.

David Parkinson

His ERA was the fourth lowest of any qualifying starting minor league pitcher since 2005  behind Justin Verlander’s 1.29 in 2005, Jon Duplantier’s 1.39 in 2017 and Blake Snell’s 1.41 in 2015, read HERE.

We watched three of Parkinson’s home starts in Clearwater after his call-up from Lakewood in August. In his first home start in the Florida State League, he faced the St. Lucie Mets and struck out the side in the second inning in a no decision game for him, watch HERE. He would go 3-0 in five starts for the Threshers and 11-1 combined on the season.

Parkinson just turned 23-years-old on December 14th. He was a 12th round draft pick out of Ole Miss. in the 2017 draft.

We look forward the watching him pitch in spring training with a chance to earn a spot on the AA Reading roster to start the 2019 season.
