Dylan Carter

2021 Team: Crowder College
Position: RHP
Year: Junior

The community college transfer will help bolster a depleted bullpen for the Hogs. Dylan Carter finished last season with a record of 8-1, striking out 77 batters in 61.2 innings of work.

He allowed 44 hits and 45 walks during his sophomore season. He didn’t play much in his freshman season, making just three game appearances.

The right-handed pitcher was a product of Bentonville West High School and ranked No. 24 in the Class of 2019 by Prep Baseball Report.

Michael Turner

2021 Team: Kent State
Position: C/INF
Year: Graduate

In his senior season at Kent State, Michael Turner started all of his games at catcher. He produced 22 RBIs and 6 home runs.

Turner was named to the All-MAC first team in 2019 for recording a .369 batting average, 52 hits and 42 RBIs. He managed to blast not one, but two grand slams that season.

Turner has baseball in his blood. His father, Brian Turner was drafted by the New York Yankees in 1989.
