San Diego Padres
Hunter was selected by the San Diego Padres in the third round (93rd overall) of the 2006 Major League Baseball Draft. As of 2009, scout.com ranked Hunter as the top prospect for the San Diego Padres. Following the 2010 season, he was added to the Padres' 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. On March 28, 2011, he made the 25-man opening day roster for the Padres.
During Opening Day on March 31, 2011, Hunter scored his first run as a Padre when playing against the St. Louis Cardinals, scoring from second base off of a Nick Hundley single in the top of the 11th inning.
St. Louis Cardinals
On October 25, 2011, he was claimed off waivers by the Oakland Athletics. On April 4, 2012, the St. Louis Cardinals acquired Hunter from the Athletics for future considerations and assigned him to their AAA team.
Hunter signed a minor league deal with the Atlanta Braves in February 2014.
