White Sox Minor League Update


RHP Dexter Carter was assigned to Kannapolis today. Part of the Jake Peavy trade, he swiftly imploded after going to the Padres.  Returning to the White Sox, where he experienced some success, maybe he'll become a sort of prospect again.  Here's a scouting report from Mike Newman from a couple years ago (check out the link for the full version as well as video):

 

One of the biggest questions of the 2009 minor league season is how much weight to put into a 22-year old in full season A ball leading all of MILB in strikeouts. With 138 strikeouts in 111 innings, Carter’s strikeout totals jump off the page. A 2.76 FIP and 4.31 K/BB ratio is also impressive. However, as a 13th round pick and older prospect, does his repertoire match the numbers?

...

Going forward, Dexter Carter will always be a family favorite due to his being gracious enough to give my son his warm up pitch. However, his pure stuff alone profiles as more of a bullpen arm than a true starting pitching prospect. With significant improvement on his change up, he could be more, but at 22 already, his still being a work in progress means he will have to take a big step forward this offseason to show he’s ready for a AA assignment.
