San Francisco Giants 2016 Season Grades: Outfielders
After Jarrett Parker made headlines at the end of last season for smashing home-runs, he never built on that success. It seemed relatively obvious that he wasn’t going to be able to keep that type of hitting up. However, 2017 proved to be a little bit of a setback for him. He got a few more innings in than Williamson and ended up without an error, which isn’t too bad.

At the plate though, he only slugged a measly .394. He also ended up with 44 strikeouts in 127 AB’s. His slashline of .236/.358/394/.751 just wasn’t what many were hoping to see from him this year. Parker’s swing reminds me a lot of Brandon Crawfords when he first came up. Maybe if they worked together, we could see some good improvements for 2017.
