Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports that the Rockies are expected to recall Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday.

He'll take the place of the injured Corey Dickerson. The 25-year-old is hitting .280/.326/.431 with nine homers and 58 RBI in 93 games at Triple-A, though he isn't likely to see enough playing time to be fantasy relevant outside of NL-only formats.
Aug 1 - 1:39 PM

Rockies optioned 1B/OF Kyle Parker to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Parker was only in the majors for a couple of days. He's already headed back to the Triple-A level because Corey Dickerson is ready to return from the disabled list.
Jun 11 - 3:27 PM

Rockies recalled 1B/OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Albuquerque.

Parker was batting .275/.318/.425 with seven home runs and 33 RBI through 53 games this season at Triple-A level. He'll give the Rockies a decent bench bat.
Jun 9 - 5:12 PM

Rockies recalled 1B/OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Parker had just one hit in nine at-bats during a short stay with the big club earlier this season. While a nice prospect, he doesn't figure to see enough playing time down the stretch in order to be fantasy-worthy.

Rockies optioned 1B/OF Kyle Parker to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

He's making room for Brett Anderson's return from the DL. Parker had just one hit in nine at-bats during his short stay with the big club.

Rockies recalled 1B/OF Kyle Parker from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Parker, a first-round pick of the Rockies in 2010, has hit .292/.344/.475 with 10 home runs and 47 RBI in 83 games this season at the Triple-A level. He went 0-for-6 with four strikeouts in a cup of coffee with Colorado earlier this year. The 24-year-old is not fantasy-relevant.

Rockies OF/1B prospect Kyle Parker went 2-for-4 with a home run for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Monday.

Parker has four hits and two walks in 10 plate appearances since he was optioned back to Triple-A. Parker's first appearance in the major leagues was neither long nor particularly successful, but there may be long-term dividends from the time he spent with major league hitters and watching major league pitchers. Parker will likely see more time with the Rockies later this season, and could be their starting right-fielder in 2015.

Rockies optioned OF/1B Kyle Parker to Triple-A Colorado Springs.

Christian Friedrich will take his place on the active roster. Parker went 0-for-6 during his first stint in the majors.

Rockies recalled OF/1B Kyle Parker from Triple-A Colorado Springs.

The former first-round pick earned the promotion after batting .292/.347/.478 with seven homers and 38 RBI over 66 games at Colorado Springs. Parker could see playing time in the corner outfield spots with Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer both sidelined. He's worth picking up in NL-only formats.
Mon, Jun 16, 2014 07:14:00 PM

Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports that the Rockies are calling up prospect outfielder Kyle Parker.

The Rockies have yet to make an official announcement. Parker, 24, is batting .292/.347/.478 line with seven home runs and 38 RBI over 66 games in Triple-A this season. He could see playing time in the corner outfield spots with Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer both sidelined in addition to spelling Justin Morneau at first base.
Mon, Jun 16, 2014 05:25:00 PM

Rockies prospect outfielder Kyle Parker went 3-for-5 with a double for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Sunday.

Parker is quietly putting up a .292/.347/.478 line with 20 doubles, three triples, and seven home runs. With Michael Cuddyer and Carlos Gonzalez out for the next month-plus, he could see some time as a corner outfielder if the Rockies decide they need some extra thump. He could also spell Justin Morneau at first base.
Mon, Jun 16, 2014 07:21:00 AM

Rockies outfield prospect Kyle Parker went 1-for-4 for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Wednesday, blasting his sixth home run of the season.

Parker is sporting a .283/.337/.492 season line with 16 doubles, three triples, and six home runs. He's blocked in Denver by Justin Morneau, Michael Cuddyer, and Carlos Gonzalez, but he could see time in September as an extra bat, or before that in the event of an injury. Look for him as a potential replacement for Cuddyer in 2015.
Thu, May 29, 2014 10:01:00 AM

Rockies outfield prospect Kyle Parker went 3-for-4 with two doubles for Triple-A Colorado Springs on Friday.

Parker is waiting patiently for an opening in Denver, but he is blocked by a half dozen players who are flat-out raking for the red-hot Rockies. Parker is hitting .317/.380/.577 in Triple-A, so he could see a promotion if there is a full-time opening.
Sat, May 10, 2014 11:12:00 AM

Rockies 1B/OF prospect Kyle Parker went 1-for-3 on Friday, and has picked up hits in seven of his last eight games.

Parker has also played first base in five of those eight games, a position he did not play for the first 12 games of the season. Many view him as the Rockies first baseman of the future, though the off-season signing of Justin Morneau pushes back his timeline. If Morneau struggles, Parker could be part of a platoon due to his success against left-handed pitching (.421/.542/.684 in 2014 and .305/.330/.505 in 2013).
