Carter showed improvements in all areas of his game during his last workout with The Factory. Defensive and offensive numbers spikes as well as raw velo (69 MPH) and exit velo (81 MPH). Behind the plate, Carter has fluid/active feet, agile movements, and he sits in low and athletically. He has firm/presentable hands, catches in rhythm, and has consistency to 2nd base after gaining some ground. Added polish and continuing to add arm strength will continue to help catching get better. Offensively, Carter has an aggressive approach through a balanced set-up and still head. He flashes fast bat speed, makes square contact, and he works the middle of the field. Better separation, rhythm, and a shorter stroke can help hitting numbers rise.

Carter continues to show improvements in his baseball abilities and has a promising future on the diamond. Behind the plate, pop times have improved as he threw his lowest time to date at 2.25. Feet are active working in line through a clean transfer / exchange. Times will continue to drop as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program and works to get rid of the baseball quicker. Glove action is soft as he sticks balls well in the zone. He uses his body well through the blocking process and is a wall behind the plate. At the plate, hitting / power potential has improved through a squared setup. Hands are quick and work through a level swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields and has strength in his swing, flashing gap-to- gap pop. At the event, he was 1 for 2 with 4 BB as he is patient and shows a solid eye. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard to be the best player he can be.
