Dylan Carlson News
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson was responsible for half of his team's runs in Thursday's 3-2 loss against the Baltimore Orioles, going 1-for-4 with a home run. Carlson's slashing .225/.273/.360 with two home runs, 12 runs, 9 RBI, and one stolen base. Once a top prospect throughout baseball, the 23-year-old has yet to put it all together, owning a career .250 batting average and .736 OPS. Fantasy managers with Carlson on their roster should expect more production in the batting average category, but his power, speed, and counting stats leave a lot to be desired.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (toe) is back in the starting lineup on Thursday against the Arizona Diamondbacks, batting sixth while serving as the designated hitter against right-hander Humberto Castellanos. Carlson left the game early on Wednesday against the New York Mets after jamming his toe, but he's good enough to serve as the DH on Thursday. The 23-year-old started the year in the leadoff spot but has since been demoted while going 14-for-65 (.215) with no home runs, four RBI and 10 strikeouts in his first 16 games played. The good news is Carlson has gone 3-for-11 with a double, triple and two RBI in three games batting in the sixth spot in the order.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (toe) jammed his toe during Wednesday's game against the New York Mets. The injury caused him to be removed from the game before the benches cleared. The Cardinals haven't given any updates on Carlson since the end of the game, but we'd expect to hear something soon. We also wouldn't think that a toe jam would be anything that would keep Carlson out more than a day or so - if that. The 23-year-old is off to a slow start to the year, slashing .215/.274/.292 over 16 games.
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.
