After cruising through the first two innings against LSU with four ground ball outs from the first six batters, Carter yielded a leadoff home run to Josh Pearson in the third which altered the perfection of the ball game after he and Tigers’ starter Luke Holman had combined to retire the games’ first 15 hitters. Following Pearson’s blast and an error on a routine ground ball, Carter was not able to regain the weight on his fastball and his early inning dominance. With a physical build of 6-foot-4, 235-pounds, Carter simply overpowers the baseball from a high three-quarters slot (6-foot-3 release point). Featuring primarily a fastball dominant arsenal, his heavy, cutting heater can hit the barrel and the barrel typically loses. It was up to 99 in the first inning, settled mostly 96-97 in second, and did tickle 99 again, peaking at 99.2 in the fourth. For the season it has averaged 97.5 mph. His breaking ball is a higher-spinner at 2500-2700+ rpm and three-quarters shaped at 81-83 mph. However, with an earlier break and a 5-7” drop in his release point, the pitch can be early ID’d. He also struggles to control the pitch with just a 49.1% (20th percentile) strike rate this season (per 643 charts). After retiring the first six LSU hitters, the Tigers were able to differentiate between pitch release points and pounced on Carter for nine runs (seven earned) on seven hits over his final 1.2 innings. On this look his changeup was the better of his two secondary offerings, but when in trouble during the five-run third inning, he went more often to his breaker, shying away from his heater and not going to his change-of-pace. When he did throw his changeup it was firm and straight at 87-90 mph, but was an effective ground ball inducer with spin rates in the 1800-1900s. For the season he has thrown the pitch for a strike 46.7% of the time. A starter in this series for the Dores, Carter is likely to be one of the first reliever profiles to come off the board this summer, most likely early during Day Two.


Cape CodCarter showed some of the best arm strength on the Cape this summer, but he’s still figuring out how to unlock his enormous upside. He logged just 5.1 innings as a freshman at Vandy in 2022 and 28.2 more as a sophomore, as strike-throwing remained a bugaboo (he has 38 walks against 29 strikeouts in his two-year collegiate career). He showed better control this summer for Orleans, posting a 2.16 ERA in four starts between the regular season and playoffs, along with a 25-11 K-BAB mark in 25 IP. Built like a linebacker at 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, Carter sat 95-98 mph and touched 99 this summer, and his fastball has good carry up in the zone, with around 21 inches of induced vertical break. His best secondary pitch at this stage is his 86-87 mph changeup, which his confident throwing against lefties or righties. His breaking ball in our look back in May was a below-average curveball at 81-84 without tight spin or bite, and Orleans worked with him on developing more of a power slider this summer, but it remains in the nascent stage. He was at least able to land his curveball for strikes in his final outing of the playoffs. Given his size and prodigious arm strength, it’s easy to dream on Carter, a Colorado native who remains raw but is improving. If his pitchability and secondary stuff can make a leap next spring, he certainly has first-round potential, but he’s something of a boom-or-bust prospect at this stage.


One of Colorado’s Top MLB Draft Prospects got his first high school start on the season, 2021 right-hander Greysen Carter of Fairview (Vanderbilt commit). His fastball  ranged from 93-95 mph touching a 96. Fastball has some arm side run. He was in the zone consistently with the fastball and worked both sides of the plate. Slider was 80-82. Noticeable athleticism with great consistency in delivery and tempo. Showed cutter at 87. Worked out of 6th inning with competitive edge. In the 7th inning the fastball was still sitting 91-93. Unofficial 110 pitches, allowing just five hits and three walks.


6-foot-2, 185-pound switch hitting RHP/OF who ran a 7.30 60 time. At the plate he stands balanced with a slight crouch from both sides. He uses a big leg trigger to start the swing and loads hard on the back side. Swing is level through the zone with good extension out front. Exit velocity was 87 mph from both sides of the plate. In the outfield he takes good angles and has a big arm from an over the top slot. Arm played at 90 mph. Power pitcher on the mound with max effort in his delivery.  Drop and drive motion with good extension on the release. Arm is over the top and live. Fastball was 88-90 mph and over powered several hitters in his inning of work. He mixed in a 64-66 mph curve with tight spin and 11/5 break.
