hit his first major league home run in Tuesday's 10-4 loss against the Mariners.

He launched a solo shot off of relief pitcher Mayckol Guaipe in the sixth inning.

Parker is now 4 for 14 (.286) with one home run, two runs, and one RBI through his first five games for the Rockies in 2015.

His former Clemson 2010 teammate Richie Shaffer also hit his first major league home run on Tuesday.

MLB.com recently ranked Parker as the Rockies' 21st best Rockies' prospect.

"Parker's raw power is unquestioned, with the potential to hit 20-plus homers annually at the highest level," said MLB.com. "His in-game power plays down at times because of a lack of consistency with his approach. Parker employs a high leg kick at the plate. When he's on time with it, he can produce big-time power. The right-handed hitter isn't always on time, though, keeping him from connecting out front and driving the ball."
