Parmelee is arguably the best pure hitter available from the prep ranks, and might be the best overall of all players eligible for the 2006 draft. He has a very good swing from the left-side of the plate that produces line drives to all parts of the field. He also displays a very keen eye at the plate, and rarely swings and misses. His swing mechanics are very sound, and he reminds me of Lyle Overbay as a hitter with a contact first approach but with potential for added power down the road. While he has played more first base than the outfield, his value is greater if he is able to prove himself in right or left field. While he doesn't have good natural foot speed, he does move well both on the field and on the basepaths, and he also has a strong arm that will play well in the outfield. Even if he doesn't play the outfield well, he could hit enough to have plenty of value as a first baseman, where he could develop into a Gold Glove candidate. He has committed to play at Cal State Fullerton.
