Despite being hit by the injury bug, Carter Kieboom had a splendid season in 2017. Even this good that the Washington Nationals decided to move him up one level to the A Advanced Potomac Nationals.
Carter got injured on May 13 and it took him until August 15 to return on the roster of the Hagerstown Senators. During his rehab stint with the Auburn Double Days, Carter hit .250 in seven games. Previously, he went to the GCL Nationals, where he hit .417 in seven games. Eventually when back on the Suns’ roster, Carter finished the season with a .296 average with twelve doubles and eight home runs.
While his batting skills excel, Carter still has room for improvement with his defense. During five games at the Gulf Coast League level and six games in the New York-Penn League, he committed two errors in each league. In forty-five games with Harrisburg, Carter committed seven errors, resulting in a fielding percentage of .961
The $2 million bonus baby’s star is rising fast. In, what will be only his third professional season, he has reached A-Advanced already. Spencer, who is the Nationals no. 4 prospect is one of four top thirty prospects on the roster of the P-Nats.
