Chris Carter, a youngster up with the Oakland Athletics, had a rough start to his career. In his first 11 games, he went to the plate 33 times, got one walk, and no hits. He's among 3 players to rack up no hits in his first 11 games:
|1||Kelly Shoppach||11||Ind. Games||19||17||0||0||0||0||0||1||8||.000||.105||.000||.105||1||0|
|2||Vic Harris||11||Ind. Games||35||32||0||0||0||0||1||3||9||.000||.086||.000||.086||0||0|
|3||Chris Carter||11||Ind. Games||33||32||0||0||0||0||0||1||13||.000||.030||.000||.030||0||1|
This list excludes pitchers and guys appearing as only pinch-hitters in some or all of the games.
Reader Erik G. brought this to my attention a couple of days ago, and since then Carter is 3 for 5 with a walk in 2 subsequent games.
