Notes on 11 prospects, including Rockies outfielder Kyle Parker and Tigers right-hander Thomas Collier.
Hitter of the Day: Kyle Parker, RF, Rockies (Salt River Rafters): 2-4, R, 2B, HR. After taking out a mortgage on the bad part of these recaps for the first week of the AFL season, Parker finally broke out on Tuesday. He connected on a double and a home run, and more importantly, didn’t strike out after doing so 12 times in his first eight games. Inconsistency is the plight of the young power hitting prospect, but it sure is nice to see them run into one every now and then.
Pitcher of the Day: Thomas Collier, RHP, Tigers (Mesa Solar Sox): 4 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 K. As a relatively non-descript prospect coming off of a non-descript season, Collier has been a pleasant surprise for the Solar Sox and likely the Tigers, who couldn’t have seen one run over three appearances coming.
