    ~Blake Parker 1985– (Cubs 2012-2014)
    Parker was a Cubs draft choice who got a lot of action of out the bullpen during the 2013 season. He appeared in 49 games for the Cubs that year and pitched fairly well, registering an ERA of 2.72. Unfortunately, the 2014 season didn’t go nearly as well, and Parker spent a lot of time in the minors. The Cubs designated Blake for assignment in May of 2015. They might have given up on him a little too soon. Parker became the closer for the Angels in 2017/2018. (Photo: 2013 Topps Emerald Baseball Card)
