Chris Carter, OF
|2008 statistics (With AAA-Pawtucket):|
He's the guy at the field by 5 a.m. in spring training, having already downed a Red Bull or two. Yes, ''intense'' is the word to describe Carter. But he can also wield a stick. Carter, who came to the Sox in the Wily Mo Peña deal in 2007, doesn't offer much in the way of defense, but he's got a major league bat, and can hit for both power and average. He could be a good power threat off the bench.
