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

Ranks:

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.

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.
