Kyle Parker Out For Texas League All-Star Game

The spectacular catch Tulsa Drillers right fielder Kyle Parker made Sunday afternoon in the top of the tenth quite possibly saved the game for the Drillers against Northwest Arkansas. But it will cost him some playing time.

Parker hurt his right wrist on that catch, that's the bad news.

The good news is the initial x-rays were negative, but the Drillers will rest him for a while to let it heal.

Parker will attend the Texas League All-Star game Tuesday but won't play. He was one of six Tulsa Drillers named an All-Star this season.

Kent Matthes made the list but he's at Triple-A Colorado Springs right now. Also making the team first baseman Kiel Roling, second baseman Angelys Nina and pitchers Christian Bergman and Tyler Matzek.

The Texas League All-Star game is a 6:00pm Tuesday night in Springdale, AR.
