RHP/UTL Carter Kutz (Hartford Union, 2025; Nebraska) has consistently proved to be one of the top talents in the state, regardless of class. He has been a huge piece for undefeated Hartford Union, who just moved up our Power 25 rankings again, up to No. 9. This past week might have been his best yet, helping the Orioles to a couple Power 25 wins and spotless record.

It all started on Monday, when Hartford took on conference foe Homestead, who was ranked No. 15 in our Power 25 at the time. Kutz took the mound for the entirety of the game, holding a solid Highlander lineup to just three hits in the shutout win and he also punched out nine. He also tallied a double in the matchup, too.

Later in the week, Kutz came out of the ‘pen in a battle with Grafton and held them scoreless in his one inning of work while also striking out a pair. He also drove in two runs on a double in that matchup which speaks to his two-way prowess.

Hartford’s best win of the week came at our Prep Baseball at The Rock High School Invitational, when they took on then ranked No. 2 Monona Grove. It was a back-and-forth battle, with Hartford finding themselves up three heading into the final inning. The Silver Eagles were threatening in that inning, as they plated two runs to cut Hartford’s lead to one. With one out remaining in the game, Kutz came in to record that out and after giving up one hit, he did just that to give Hartford the huge Power 25 win to end the week. Again, his offensive abilities were on display as he doubled and singled to drive in one run for the Orioles in that one, too.

Scouting Report


Nebraska commit. Currently ranked No. 1 in Wisconsin’s 2025 class. Uptempo delivery on the mound, works quick in between pitches. Simple and repeatable mover with a quick and strong arm. His fastball sat in the upper-80s throughout his complete game start and he reached back for a 91 mph fastball in the middle of his outing. Off of his fastball he threw in a deceptive changeup that was thrown at arm speed and played with a ton of late fade at the plate, earning some awkwards swings-and-misses to both left and right-handed hitters. While he didn’t go to it much, he did flash a tighter breaking ball in the mid-70s, that he was able to locate to the glove side.
