Uncommitted Prospect Spotlight: 2019 Adam Parra

Jordon Banfield
Arizona Scouting Director

Throughout the year PBR will put the spotlight on a number of uncommitted prospects who show the necessary tools to play at the next level. 2019 Adam Parra from Perry HS performed well at the Fall Prospect Showcase and Preseason All-State Games and put together a solid spring season. While he possesses a solid swing, Parra's future is on the mound where he shows a clean delivery and feel for three pitches. With a slight uptick in veto tis summer we could be looking at a DI arm. We are excited to see more from him this summer at the 2019 Top Prospect Games. As always, contact [email protected] or direct message @PBRArizona on Twitter with any questions and/or commitment information.

Scouting Report

1/28/18 - 6-foot-2, 210-pound frame with thick lower half. Can be a college contributor on either side of the ball, but highest ceiling is on the mound where he worked 82-84 mph, touching 85. Uses a short arm action, getting on top of the baseball quickly and driving it downhill to home plate with some heaviness. Showed ability to sink his changeup at 70-72 mph and also mixed in a 68-69 mph curveball with varying shape. Legitimate feel for three pitches. Shows strength in swing with slight uphill path. Tends to get started late and allow the ball to get deep in the zone. Posted 86 mph exit velocity and showed legitimate power that will play at the college level. Worked out at 3B where he looks comfortable and his arm plays (81 mph infield velo), also showing some softness in his hands, but feet likely project best to 1B. Posted 7.68 60-yard dash.

10/29/17 –6-foot-2, 210-pound frame with wide hips and a thick lower half. Interesting two-way prospect showed best on the mound where he worked 83-85, T86 with his heavy fastball, utilizing a full windup and short, clean arm action. Generates good downhill plane with strong front side and high ¾ slot. Showed consistent rotation on 69-71 mph curveball with 11/5 shape and advanced feel for 72-75 mph changeup with good arm speed and sinking action. Big frame and feel for three pitches make him an intriguing prospect on the mound. Offensively, his best tool is his bat, turning in an 87 mph exit velocity with a simple, balanced swing. Generates impressive raw power and was consistently on the barrel. Shows strong arm at 3B with 81 mph infield velocity with longer arm action and could also profile to 1B at the next level.
