After being named Texas League Player of the Week for three of the last four weeks, IF Chris Carter finally has been bumped up to AAA-Sacramento. You may remember Carter from the Carlos Quentin deal, where he was swapped straight up by Chicago. Then, Arizona flipped him to Oakland in the Dan Haren deal. Carter has been most impressive this year, hitting 24 HR and 101 RBI. Perhaps most impressive, though, is his .337 batting average.
No word yet if Carter is in the lineup, but if he is, I’ll have a full report on his AAA debut later tonight.
