From Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus: Carter: "He has as much strength as any hitter I've seen this year," said one West Coast scout. "But at the same time there are a number of exploitable holes in his swing, and I'm not sure how much he can close them." Always the type of prospect who has struck out a lot due to his power, Carter has already racked up 91 whiffs this year, but this is the first time he's failed to hit for average, and it's come at the worst time. Taylor: This year, Taylor has been hampered at times by a calf strain, but that alone can't explain away a .249/.318/.384 performance that is well below expectations. "I've never seen him before, so I never saw the guy who put up big numbers," said the same scout who chimed in on Carter. "He certainly looks the part, he's huge while still being lean and athletic, he seems to have some feel for contact, but he's not really squaring anything up. I still like him, but he can look lost at times, and I wonder if the slump is getting to him."
