Jarrett Parker got one in 2014


Outfielder Jarrett Parker was a major-leaguer for one day last year. When the Giants were in New York, they promoted Parker from Double-A Richmond, Va., along with Matt Duffy. A day later, Parker was sent to Triple-A when Brandon Belt came off the concussion disabled list sooner than expected.

Parker reached the majors again Wednesday, also in New York, when Gregor Blanco went on the concussion DL.

“It’s crazy how things work out,” Parker said.

Crazy, and fortuitous for Parker. Because the Giants award World Series rings to all players who reach the majors, he got one, even though he did not play in his lone game. He received it from general manager Bobby Evans in a ceremony before a recent game at Sacramento.
