His delivery is athletic down the mound with an efficient lower-half, creating easy power from his 6-foot-1, 185-pound frame. Carpenter’s arm plays long out of the glove into a loose ¾ slot, generating a fastball that worked its way up to 88 mph with arm-side finish through the zone. His curveball looks to have wipeout potential, playing off a 1/7 plane with sharp action and finishing with depth through the zone. Carpenter’s changeup looks to be an above-average, change-of-pace offering as well, fading heavily into his arm-side at 76-79 mph, kept down consistently.



Carpenter was one of a number of quality defensive outfielders in attendance at the event. Carpenter plays with quick, fluid footwork fit for the outfield and his arm topped at 91 mph. Like Oppor above, Carpenter’s quick arm actually translates best to the mound where, on Sunday, he sat 83-84 mph and showed one of the day’s best breaking balls, a curve that spins at an average rate of 2,501 rpm.

Fastball sat 79-82 mph, touching 83, with the feel to spin a sharp 1/7 curveball, 69-71, while utilizing a changeup to righty bats that kept them off balance, 73-75.
