Ideal pitchers' body, filled-out, lacks remaining projection; full wind, tight, stiff and messy arm action, above-average arm speed, three-quarter slot; slight crossfire, command suffers due to timing issues with front side

Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
Fastball 55 60 92-94 96 Above-average run and sink, worm-killer, fringe-average present control, well below-average command, pitch plays down currently due to lackluster command; projection for improvement to fuller utility, pitch will play to plus

Curveball 40 50 75-79 82 Manipulates shape, mainly 11-5, average depth, has some bite; primarily used as a finishing pitch, works it out of the zone, flashes average
Changeup 30 30 86-88 88 Clear third offering; shows consistent arm speed, lacks feel; below-average movement and command
Overall

Carter has an interesting relief profile, with a solid two-pitch primary arsenal that generates a lot of ground balls. The command needs to take a step forward if he's going to develop into a regular bullpen contributor, as he has timing issues that keep the raw stuff playing down at present. He projects more likely as an up-and-down arm.

Control- 45/50
Command- 30/40
