01/18/2019 - Baseball Factory Spring Training in Arizona (Ages 12-14)
Carter is a coachable OF/C prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the Spring Training in Arizona. In the field, Carter shows quick footwork and fields the ball out in front of his body with soft hands. He throws from over top and keeps his throws accurate to his target. Making a quicker exchange can help Carter improve defensively. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a short stride. He works to barrel up the baseball and makes solid contact. Carter can improve as a hitter by working a smoother rhythm into his load. With six more years to develop, Carter has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.

Carter is a scrappy, 2-way player who plays OF and catcher. In the OF, Carter gets good reads off the bat, his feet play well, and he works behind the ball properly. He makes plays, gathers himself well, and throws with a loose arm action to his cut off man. Behind the plate, Carter has active feet, he sits in athletically, and sticks it well. He creates a good angle when blocking, and has a clean exchange with accuracy to 2nd base. Offensively, Carter has a square set-up, good balance, and he swings in good rhythm. He has fast bat speed, makes hard/consistent contact, and gets his lower body through. Overall skills can get better with work on the following.
