Scouting Report
: Extremely intelligent, Carter is a real student of hitting, and has demonstrated success with the bat at every level.  Excellent power with the potential for more.   Hits for average and consistently gets on base at a very good clip.  Hits lefties and righties well.  Below average speed.   In the field, Carter has spent much of his career at 1B but was moved to the outfield in 2008.  He has always been known as a poor fielder, and still doesn't look particularly comfortable at any position.  He has focused on his glove and footwork and has improved slightly, but still not enough.
