#7 Reliever: Parker Dyson, Purcellville

Parker Dyson West Liberty 2017The 7th best reliever in the 2017 Valley League season is Purcellville’s Parker Dyson, from West Liberty University!

The 6-foot-5 lefty, a Criminal Justice major, was lights-out over 11 games and 17 regular season innings for the Cannons:

Pur ERA W L G SV IP H R ER BB K BAVG WIP BB/9 K/9
2017 0.52 1 0 11 1 17.0 12 2 1 8 28 0.182 1.176 4.2 14.8
Play 6.75 0 0 1 0 4.0 4 3 3 1 3 0.267 1.250 2.3 6.8

Among pitchers considered for this list, Parker finished 3rd in ERA, 3rd in K/9, and  tied for 10th in batting average against. Parker did not allow an earned run in his first 10 appearances, covering 16 innings. And striking out 28 in 17 innings, especially as a lefty, is no joke.

The current junior improved a huge amount between his freshman and sophomore years:

WL ERA W L G SV IP H R ER BB K WIP BB/9 K/9
2016 7.00 1 1 5 0 9.0 11 7 7 13 12 2.667 13.0 12.0
2017 3.98 4 2 10 0 43.0 31 24 19 21 50 1.209 4.4 10.5

Watch for another jump for the Hilltoppers this spring!
