Corbin Carroll News
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Corbin Carroll made his spring debut on Saturday during a 6-2 Cactus League win over the Colorado Rockies. The reigning NL Rookie of the Year was not a factor, however, going hitless in two at-bats and drawing a walk in his third plate appearance. He was then taken out for a pinch runner. One spring training game does not a season make, however, and Carroll figures to be one of the top offensive weapons in all of real-life and fantasy baseball this season. The former first-round draft pick will look to build upon his 2023 All-Star campaign after he tallied a .285-25-76-116-54 line in 155 games. Carroll is ranked fifth overall at RotoBaller and is being taken around the same pick in 2024 fantasy drafts. At that pick, managers have to decide whether they want the HR/RBI upside of Mookie Betts or lower (yet respectable) totals in those categories from Carroll but with 40 more stolen bases than the Los Angeles Dodger second baseman.
Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Corbin Carroll was unanimously named the 2023 National League Rookie of the Year on Monday. Carroll displayed his elite speed and surprising power for a player that stands at just 5-foot-10, 165 pounds on his way to helping the D-backs get all the way to the World Series this fall. The 23-year-old hit 25 home runs and stole 54 bases in 2023, making him the first-ever rookie to reach those marks in his first full MLB season. Carroll also led all NL rookies with a 5.4 bWAR and all MLB rookies with a 6.0 fWAR. He is the first winner of this award in the franchise's history. Carroll slashed .285/.362/.506 with an .868 OPS, 76 RBI and 116 runs scored in 565 at-bats.
Arizona Diamondback outfielder Corbin Carroll will swap places in the lineup with Ketel Marte. The Texas Rangers will start Jordan Montgomery for Game 2, moving the lefty-hitting Carroll down a slot. The Arizona lineup will stay the same as Game 1 outside of that small change. The more surprising move may be that Alek Thomas will keep his place in the lineup against the left-handed Montgomery, again hitting seventh.
Corbin Carroll went from being a prospect to a fantasy stud in 2023. Carroll helped the Diamondbacks to an improbable run to the World Series, hitting .285/.362/.506 with 25 homers, 76 RBI, 116 runs and 54 stolen bases in 155 games. Carroll's speed is his main asset with a 30.1 ft/sec average sprint speed ranking in the 99th percentile. He showed enough power to avoid being merely a speedster. The Diamondbacks have also bolstered their roster so there's reason to believe Carroll can match or better last season's RBI total. His .268 xBA does suggest there could be some regression but Carroll's speed allows him to leg out the infield hits so another .280-.290 batting average isn't out of the question. And when he does beat out those infield hits, he'll keep flying on the bases. His 8.8% BB% is good enough to get him on base enough to make the most of his speed. Carroll is only 23 years old and is heading into his second full season in the Majors. There's every reason to believe he can improve. Even a repeat of his 2023 numbers would justify using a top-five pick on him this draft season.
