Oakland receives Milwaukee’s first round pick in the 1990 amateur draft in compensation, and will use it to take pitcher Todd Van Poppel, as well as a compensation pick with which they will select another pitcher, Kirk Dressendorfer. Parker will hit 21 home runs with 92 RBI for Milwaukee next season.
