Former Clemson QB/OF Kyle Parker was signed by the Cincinnati Reds to a minor league deal on Tuesday according to multiple reports.

Parker will more than likely be headed the Reds' Triple-A affiliate.

In two MLB seasons (64 games), Parker has batted .182 with three home runs and 12 RBIs with 51 strike outs and only six walks in 138 plate appearances.

Last season at Triple-A Albuquerque, he hit .280 with 9 home runs and 58 RBIs in 93 games. For his minor league career, he is an impressive .290 hitter over five seasons.

He was drafted by the Rockies with the 26th overall pick in the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.
