Carter is a talented 5-foot-11, 150 pound right-handed hitting middle infield prospect. He hits out of a wide, slightly open stance, with the hands set just off the back shoulder. The load begins with a tiny toe tap to move the weight over the back leg and pushes the hands back, into a strong position. The bat works through the hitting zone on an uphill path and finishes well through contact. The hands really work in his swing. He’s able to generate a lot of bat-speed, leading to a lot of hard contact and a max exit velocity of 93 MPH.

Defensively, Carter has athletic actions in the middle of the diamond and showed a velocity of 83 MPH on his throws. He’s able to manipulate his feet to get good hops and showcased his soft hands as he transitioned through the ground ball. He uses a longer, quick arm-swing and finishes through the play well. 

On the mound, the delivery is simple. He gets balanced at the top, with the hands in the center of the chest before separating and moving down the mound. The arm-swing is a high, over-the-top slot, which makes his fastball that sits 83-84 MPH some heavy sink. He also showed a good looking breaking ball at 66-68 MPH and a change-up at 70-71 MPH.

Carter was impressive at this event. He showed added bat-speed and strength at the plate. The delivery on the mound has tightened up, allowing his arm to really work and the actions in the middle of the diamond are athletic. This is a guy with a ton of potential!

5-foot-10, 145-pound right-handed hitting infielder, he showed very well at the event as he continues to improve his game. Ran a 7.4 sixty at the event. The approach in the infield is solid as he works through the ball with his feet and the arm plays.He threw 73 mph across the diamond at the workout.  The bat is trending up, the setup is even in base, uses a toe tap for timing. The bat head is maneuvered well as the gets the head out. Uses a 1-handed finish after contact. Solid player that is still improving. 

On the mound, the fastball sat 70-72 mph. The spin pitch was 58-60 mph, big in shape. The changeup is a work in progress. The delivery is online with the feet and the slot is above 3/4. The back arches as he separates his hands and direction goes awry to the catcher. 

INF Velocity-73 mph

The 5-foot-10, 143 pound right-handed hitting infielder is a good looking young hitter. He had a tee exit velocity of 81 mph.  The stance begins out of a slight crouch, with the hands set just off the back shoulder.  He gets into a strong position to hit as he loads.  Once the swing starts, he shows off his strength.  The bat has some pop!  He hits with a slight lift and stays through contact with good extension.  

Defensively, I like his actions.  The hands and feet are athletic.  He gets himself into a good position to field and works nicely through the ground ball.  The arm-swing is quick.  He was 77 mph across the diamond.  

On the mound, the delivery is simple.  He is deliberate in getting to the balance position.  The hands are in the center of the chest before he separates and begins to move down the mound.  As he heads down the mound, his direction is in line with home plate.  The arm-swing is a high, over  the top slot, which gives his fastball that sat 75-77 mph some late sink.  He also showed a breaking ball with good spin at 57-60 mph.

This is a good looking young two-way guy!  The arm works and he shows good actions in the middle of the diamond.  I’m looking forward to seeing how he progresses.
