Dylan Carlson News
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson will be on the bench for Friday's series opener against the Chicago Cubs and right-hander Cory Abbott. In 611 plate appearances for the Cardinals this season, Carlson is batting .263 with a .339 on-base percentage, 18 home runs, and two stolen bases. Harrison Bader is starting in center field in Carlson's place and is batting sixth. The outfielder could be worth a look as a streaming option for fantasy managers late in the season. Bader is batting .267 with a .324 on-base percentage, 15 home runs, and eight stolen bases in 389 plate appearances this season.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson is starting in right field and batting fifth in Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. He was lifted in the seventh inning of Tuesday's game and there was speculation that he had suffered an injury in the game. He grimaced and showed signs of pain after striking out right before his removal. Cardinals manager Mike Shildt told reporters after Tuesday's game that the removal was a double switch and he wouldn't comment on a potential injury, leading beat writers to speculate - which is always a dangerous thing. Carlson has had a decent year overall, slashing .257/.334/.414 with 15 home runs, 59 RBI and 72 runs.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (undisclosed) was lifted in the seventh inning of Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Lars Nootbaar entered the game to take over for him in right field. Carlson struck out in the top of the seventh inning and showed a hint of discomfort, but it wasn't clear what he aggravated. After the game, Cardinals manager Mike Shildt refused to directly respond to any questions about whether he was concerned about an injury for Carlson. He just told the reporters it was a double switch and said, "We'll leave it at that for now," suggesting there's more to it that he isn't ready to speak on. We should know more about the nature and extent of Carlson's injury on Wednesday.
St. Louis Cardinals top prospectDylan Carlson looks set to start the 2021 season with the Major League team after making his MLB debut in 2020. Carlson didn't get called up until mid-August and only saw action in 35 games for the Cardinals, hitting .200/.252/.364 with three homers and a stolen base. But Carlson did improve as the season went on and he had a .611 slugging percentage over the final two weeks of the season. Considered a good all-around hitter with above-average power potential, he displayed those tools in 2019 across Double-A and Triple-A with 26 homers, 20 stolen bases and an impressive .292/.372/.542 slash line in 126 games.Carlson is a switch-hitter who plays good defense in all three outfield spots, so he should see plenty of playing time with most of it likely coming in right field. Although the Cardinals lineup does have some question marks, Carlson has the upside to be a five-category contributor in 2021, with 25 homers and 12 steals more than possible. He does only have a total of 198 plate appearances above Double-A and he's had a slow spring to date so growing pains are possible. However, Carlson in a great position to outperform his 168 ADP once he gets his bat going.
