Another one on the go! NY Sullivan Explorers catcher Parker Franklin gets sent up to the Atlantic League.
The York Revolution of the Atlantic League get the rookie catcher after promoting both their catchers to affiliated organizations, such as Atlanta Braves and Florida Marlins. Parker is the first player selected by Baseball Director Eddie Gonzalez to the highest level of Independent Minor League Professional Baseball this 2016 season.
“When these organizations at such high level ask for players, it’s not all about statistics but the quality of the individual that they want in the club house. I don’t send guys up to those opportunities if they don’t please my quality of individual character that is desired. Character and attitude is always above statistics.” – DB Eddie Gonzalez
