Dexter Carter working on his changeup

BA’s Jim Shonerd tries to find out why Dexter Carter hasn’t been promoted yet:

With that level of succes and considering his age, 22, Carter would seem like a prime candidate for promotion. By comparison, his ex-ODU teammate and fellow White Sox draftee, righthander Dan Hudson, also started the season in Kannapolis but has already reached Double-A, going 9-5, 2.61 in the process. But the biggest separator between the two is in the quality their changeups. When he commands them, Carter’s fastball and curveball are more than enough to succeed against Sally League hitters. His fastball has touched 94 mph and sits mostly 90-92, and he complements it with a downer curveball that gets some side-to-side movement as well. The changeup is the pitch he needs most to develop further if he’s going to succeed at higher levels.
