Parker moves to AA

Norwell's own Jarrod Parker has been promoted to Double-A ball at Mobile in the Southern League.

Parker, considered to be the Diamondbacks' No. 1 prospect by Baseball America, left the California League after just four starts. But it was a dominant four-start performance by Parker.

Parker (1-0) ranks second in the Cal League in earned run average (0.95) and is among league leaders with 21 strikeouts. Opposing hitters were hitting well under .200 against Parker, who allowed 12 hits in 19 innings.

Parker pitches in the new league on Saturday.
