Dylan Carlson News
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson had another strong game on Friday, going 3-for-5 with a double and two singles. Despite being on base three times, Carlson's teammates were unable to get him across the plate for a run. He's moved his way up the lineup and seems to be working out of the second spot in the batting order. He's heating up more and more each day, and already has his numbers up to a .283 batting average and an .805 OPS. In case he's still on any waiver wires, he's absolutely worth picking up and starting right now.
St. Louis Cardinals rookie outfielder Dylan Carlson hit his fifth home run of the season in Monday's loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Carlson ended up going 1-for-4 with a run scored and two RBI. His home run came in the sixth inning with a runner on base, giving him 24 RBI on the year to go with a .269 batting average and a .774 OPS. He seems locked into a spot in the top third of the Cardinals lineup, likely making him a strong source of runs throughout the season.
St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (back) remains out of the lineup on Sunday, one day after he was scratched from the lineup due to back tightness. Lane Thomas will get the start in right for the second day in a row, and is batting eighth against the Cubs. Carlson has gotten off to a good start this season, slashing .291/.382/.424 with three home runs, 19 RBI and 26 runs scored over 44 games. Managers should continue to consider him day-to-day for now, and hope that he can avoid a stint on the IL.
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.
