    Halter was a prominent high school hitter who ranked as the No. 106 prospect in the 2020 class, but went unselected and made his way to campus at Florida. After a strong freshman season in 2021, Halter’s bat backed up during his draft-eligible 2022 season and he again went unselected, though he bounced back with Falmouth in the Cape Cod League, where he hit .307/.407/.507 with seven home runs in 39 games. Scouts were impressed with his performance on the Cape, but again in 2023 he struggled with the bat and hit just .247/.354/.397 with a 15.7% strikeout rate and 11.6% walk rate. Halter has no real carrying tools other than his bat, so teams will need to buy into his freshman year performance and high school pedigree more than his sophomore and junior seasons to feel confident in his ability in pro ball. He’s played both second base and third base with Florida, but fits best at the keystone in pro ball.
