With their 24th round pick in the 2014 Draft the Cleveland Indians have selected centerfielder Jodd Carter out of Hilo High School (HI).

Born: 7/20/1996 – Height: 5’10” – Weight: 170 – Bats: Right – Throws: Right


Baseball America: 473

Jeff Ellis: Jodd Carter is a high school outfielder from Hawaii who is committed to the University of Hawaii so I am not sure if he is even signable. He is another smaller player at 5’9”, but he does have some interesting tools. When he was announced the Indians announced his position as a centerfielder which is rare as they often just say outfield. Todd has plus speed and covers some ground out there. His arm would be plus for centerfield and had been recorded in the low 80’s there. He has a nice swing, hits it to all fields and shows some gap power. Todd is a good athlete who could be a nice speed addition to the Indians lower levels.

This is to Jodds dad, first off his batting average ain't no 440!!!. Also rookie ball is rookie ball there are hundreds of players better than him. I've gone to many games and it's not even close to single A and higher. So much errors and pitching not even close to the higher levels, at the rookie level. Don't count your chickens before they hatch!. As a parent you shouldn't be reading these comments or even commenting on it. This makes you look small minded. If you can't accept this small negative details imagine what the big league professional ' s hear and see about themselves. You never see their parents get involved because they don't belong there if they cannot take criticism! So relax and leave the critics to do their criticism. I also know there are baseball people reading this scouts, minor and major league workers, players and more imagine a teammate of you son reading that his Daddy is making comments trying to back him up when he is supposed to be a mature young adult.

Give the kid a chance!
Yes, talk is he didnt qualify with SAT to go D1. However

Its "rookie" ball folks not a huge thing either way to be honest.
Alot of kids earn the right to play in the minors especially the lowest grade at rookie and with that said alot of kids dont make it to rookie ball out of high school simply because of lack of exposure or lack of an individual endoresing a player which is true! Furthermore, Alot more kids could play at this level that maybe wasnt in the cards or never got a break.
It is what it is "rookie ball" one step from high school. Nothing more nothing less.

Sorry, very overwhelmed playing at this level. Could show more but highly unlikely.

Good player, very respectful of and dedicated to the game. He was drafted a month ago give him time to get use to the surroundings and give him a chance.

Hes a bit too small. Seems very overwhelmed and out of place here.
I personally see him staying in rookie ball for a long time or eventually getting cut.
I witnessed him give up while running to 1st on a ground ball! Not good youngster!

Occassionally takes plays off and lacks motivation to work hard when scouts are not looking.
Many other hawaii players more talented and not drafted.

Honestly.....jodd is overated!
To stiff, can't move laterally, and he's actually 5'7" / some say he has a very bad attitude as well.
Many other players in Hawaii much better.....only Kaha Wongs indoresment got him drafted.

* Most people don't know but, He never had a choice.....he didn't pass his SAT's to go to UH Manoa to play baseball.
