Breaking News: Texas Rangers Confirm To Loose Another Key Player

Ouch! The Texas Rangers’ emerging talent, Evan Carter, poised to take on the role of the team’s primary left-fielder this season, had to exit a spring training game on Sunday after being hit by a pitch on his left hand. Following the impact, Carter underwent a brief examination by trainers upon reaching first base, but he was swiftly replaced by Elier Hernandez. Hernandez took over both in right field and in Carter’s spot in the lineup.

At 21 years old, Carter played a crucial role in the Rangers’ successful World Series campaign last October, making his MLB debut on September 8. An assessment of the injury’s severity is anticipated later in the game as the Rangers face the San Francisco Giants in their third Cactus League matchup at Surprise Stadium.

Carter’s impressive contributions in the 2023 regular season included a .306 batting average, four doubles, five home runs, 12 RBI, and 15 runs in 23 games. During the postseason, he gained national attention with a .300 batting average, nine runs, six RBI, nine doubles, and a home run.

In preparation for the upcoming season, Carter expressed a determination to showcase his abilities against left-handed pitchers during spring camp. Notably, he faced some challenges in this regard towards the end of the 2023 regular season, going 0 for 10 with a walk and six strikeouts against lefties. Despite being technically labeled as the Rangers’ No. 1 prospect by MLB Pipeline due to limited MLB experience, Carter is expected to play a significant role as an everyday starter in 2024.
