The Rangers selected Carter in the second round of the 2020 MLB Draft out of Elizabethton High School in Elizabethton, Tenn.

He batted .236/.438/.387/.825 with two home runs and 12 RBI. He also drew 34 walks and stole 12 bases.
Carter played until he was placed on the injured list on July 16 and did not return the rest of the season.
The Rangers’ No. 1 prospect, according to MLB.com, is Texas third baseman Josh Jung. The only other player ahead of Carter on the MLB.com list is pitcher Jack Leiter.
