Bartram Trail High School graduate Kyle Parker has been promoted to the Colorado Rockies.

The former two-sport star at Clemson was a first round pick in the 2010 MLB Draft. He graduated from Bartram Trail in December of 2007. He went on to be a key contributor to Clemson's baseball team beginning in the spring of 2008, and he was the starting quarterback for the Tigers football team in 2009 and 2010.

Parker is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles in time for the Rockies game against the Dodgers on Monday night. He will either play in the outfield or be a backup to first baseman Justin Morneau.
