Angels & Blake Parker agree to $1.8 million deal, avoiding arbitration

Our favorite GOAT from 2017 gets a much-deserved payday in his first arbitration-eligible offseason. Blake Parker was one of, if not THE, best surprises of the Halos’ 2017 season. The 32-year-old righty was an after thought heading into last year, and rightfully so. Here was a guy who had been claimed off of waivers THREE times in the span of a few months, and who had been chipping...

Sunday Notes: Blake Parker is an Angel Who Can Save

Blake Parker is a proven closer, but only down on the farm. Of the 32-year-old right-hander’s 117 professional saves, only three have been in a big-league uniform.

The New Relief Ace in Anaheim

If you had told the Angels before the season started that they would be in the thick of the Wild Card race approaching Fourth of July weekend, it’s likely they would have been pleased.

Quick Glance: Blake Parker

When you think of the great Brewers right-handed bullpen successes of recent vintage, chances are a fastball/curveball ideal comes to mind. Milwaukee’s most recent reclamation project, Jeremy Jeffress, revitalized his career on the strengths of a blazing fastball and impeccable curve combination. But, there is reason to believe that Rob Scahill might fit this mold, too, and scouts...

Parker elbows way into Mariners' relief picture

Cubs 6, Reds 4

Did The Cubs Win? OSS: Hendricks had an uneven first start (strike the 1st, it was very very good), but Alcantara played himself onto the team!!! Three Up 1. Arismendy Alcantara went 4-5 with 2 singles, 2B, 3B. He had an extremely good game, and afterwards, it was announced that he’s not going down right away. Hopefully Barney gets Wally Pipp’d. 2. Blake Parker dominated the 11th...
