Chicago White Sox Release Dexter Carter

The Chicago White Sox have released minor league pitcher Dexter Carter, according to Kevin Goldstein of Baseball Prospectus. The 25-year-old has been stuck in Single-A since reaching the level as a 22-year-old way back in 2009.

Despite his lack of progress, Carter was actually once considered a pretty solid prospect. During the middle of the 2009 season, the White Sox actually traded Carter to the San Diego Padres as part of the trade that brought Jake Peavy to Chicago. At that point, Carter was in the midst of a breakout season (3.13 ERA, 143/32 K/BB over 19 starts), but things completely fell apart after he left the Chicago organization.

After badly struggling with the Padres through the 2010 season, Carter returned to the White Sox for the 2011 season with an eye on getting his development back on track. Things didn't get any better, though, as he struggled to the tune of a 6.65 ERA over 65 innings for Single-A Kannapolis.

At this point, as a 25-year-old pitcher that's struggling to even survive at the Single-A level, it's understandable to see why the White Sox have decided to cut ties.
