Texas Rangers top prospect, Evan Carter

Texas Rangers top prospect, Evan Carter, had quite the game on Wednesday against the San Antonio Missions.

It only took Evan Carter five games in the season for him to have his first multi-HR game at the Double-A level. His 4 RBI is a high at the Double-A level. He had a 6-RBI game with the Crawdads last season (2022).

In his 1st plate appearance, he drew a 9-pitch walk after starting from an 0-2 count.

He finished 2-for-3, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 2 BB, and a stolen base.
