06/16/2013 - College PREP - Hoover (Birmingham), AL Carter is a tall 1st baseman with broad shoulders. At 1B, Carter has soft hands, active footwork, and he moves well to the ball. He makes plays, keeps the ball in front, and he throws with accuracy to his target from a long arm action. If Carter can field more out front and quicken his exchange, defense can get better. At the plate, Carter has a square set-up, good balance, and quick hands. He makes hard contact, he swings in good rhythm, and he uses his lower 1/2. Hitting can improve if Carter can let the ball travel and stay level through the baseball.
