BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Anthony Carter has seen his control improve with experience and he still dials his fastball up to the upper 90s, which got him protected on the 40-man roster; his slider and change are still far from being plus pitches.
2012 In most organizations a 25-year-old reliever who suffered a mid-season demotion to Double-A isnít really a prospect, but this isnít most organizations. Carter commands attention with his upper-90s fastball, but last year he couldnít command the strike zone, issuing almost five free passes per nine and getting kicked around the yard like a gym ball at recess. If he can cut down on the walks while keeping his strikeout rate high he could someday have Mike MacDougalís career, for what thatís worth. But letís be honest hereóthat almost never happens.
2011 Mild sleeper alert! OK, that sounds slightly nonsensical, like rating a threat level "Orange Julius," but the point here is that Carter's is a name to know, and for more than you few USFL fans missing the Michigan Panthers' great wideout. Carter is pure power, throwing his fastball up to 98 mph, but the Sox belatedly came around to the idea of relegating him to relief work last May, after initially hoping to harness that power in a starting role. But after 10 runs allowed (40 percent of his final tally) in two starts totaling five innings, they shunted him to closing, where he slammed doors shut, striking out 55 in 52 1/3 IP while allowing just 53 baserunners. He followed up his regular-season success by sizzling in the AFL, striking out 16 in 10 innings without giving up a walk. Added to the 40-man, he'll have a shot at pitching his way into the back end of the bullpen.
