12/01/2013 - College PREP - McCook (Chicago), IL Carter is a solid, athletic SS/RHP that will graduate in 2016. Currently, he projects best on the mound for the next level. Delivery is repeatable as he uses his lower half well and allows his arm action to work long and well to the plate through a high 3/4 arm slot. Fastball shows a range of 79-80 mph with arm side run and sink. Breaking ball displays 11/5 shape with late break. He maintains arm speed on his changeup showing a feel for with cutting action. Off speed pitches show as quality pitches that will get outs at the next level. Command / control are a plus as he throws strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to rise as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. At SS, foot speed is slightly above average as indicated by his 7.41 60 time. Feet are active as he works around balls, squares up, and plays through with his body, displaying clean hands. For defensive grade to continue to improve, he needs to present hands more out front and improve his feeds / turns of the double play. At the plate, Turnquist shows a squared setup with balance and he tracks the ball well. Hands are quick, flashing bat speed and work through a level swing path. He works to stay inside the ball, utilizing the middle of the field well. Power numbers will continue to improve as he improves barrel accuracy and learns to use his lower half more. With 3 years to further develop, Carter has an upside on the mound and will catch the eyes of the collegiate coaches with his abilities.
