12/27/2019 - Baseball Factory West Coast Winter Classic (Ages 12-14) Carter continues to shine on the diamond. At SS, he displays clean / smooth actions. Feet are active as he displays proper footwork as he works to square ground balls up and plays through with his body. Glove action is clean but needs to present more out front. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program. Behind the plate, Carter presents a good target to the pitcher and tracks the ball into his glove. He makes a clean exchange and throws from a 3/4 angle, working to keep his throws accurate to the 2B bag. He is efficient moving to block and covers up well. Carter can improve as a C by sitting in a more athletic stance. At the plate, he shows a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. Power will increase as he utilizes his lower half more efficiently. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
