    Carlson isn't starting Saturday against Pittsburgh, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Recaptures regular role

    Carlson will start in right field and bat second in Wednesday's game against the Brewers, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Carlson will stay in the lineup for the fifth game in a row after going 5-for-17 with four doubles, four runs and an RBI over the prior four contests. So long as Tyler O'Neill (hamstring) is stuck on the injured list, Carlson looks like he'll have a clear path to an everyday role in the outfield.

    Carlson doubled and scored in the second frame before doing it again in the top of the sixth inning. The multi-hit effort was his second in his last four games and he is now batting .241 with five doubles, an RBI and six runs scored over 29 at-bats since returning from the 10-day injured list Sept. 17.

    Carlson went 1-for-4 with one double and one run scored in Saturday's victory over the Reds.

    Carlson led off the third inning with a double off lefty starter Mike Minor during the first game of the doubleheader. The outfielder faced significant struggles during his 13 games prior to his stint on the 10-day injured list with a thumb injury, recording a .182 average and .273 slugging percentage over 22 at-bats. The 23-year-old performs better against left-handed pitching with a .321 average and .509 slugging percentage in 112 at-bats compared to a .207 average and .338 slugging percentage in 275 at-bats facing righties.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Rehab assignment begins Friday

    Carlson (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Memphis on Friday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Carlson took swings this week and has been cleared to return to game action in the minors. He's been on the injured list with a left thumb sprain since Sept. 7, and it seems likely that he'll need only a brief rehab assignment before rejoining the Cardinals.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Activated prior to twin bill

    Carlson (thumb) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Carlson played a rehab game at Triple-A Memphis on Friday and went 2-for-3 with two doubles and a run. He should have a chance to serve as the Cardinals' primary center fielder after Tyler O'Neill (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Nearing rehab stint

    Carlson (thumb) took swings Tuesday and could begin a minor-league rehab assignment as early as Friday, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The 23-year-old landed on the 10-day IL last week with a sprained left thumb, but his quick return to baseball activities could mean his absence is brief. Carlson faded into a reserve role in the outfield during the second half of August and is likely to reclaim those duties once healthy.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Shelved with sprained thumb

    The Cardinals placed Carlson on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a left thumb sprain.

    Carlson had already moved off the fantasy radar in most redraft leagues after fading into a reserve role in the second half of August, and the thumb injury only further lessens the possibility of him regaining relevance before the season comes to an end. St. Louis called up Alec Burleson from Triple-A Memphis to replace Carlson as an extra outfielder off the bench, but Corey Dickerson, Tyler O'Neill and Lars Nootbaar are expected to remain the team's primary starters from left to right in most games.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Sitting yet again

    Carlson remains on the bench Saturday against Atlanta, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Carlson seems to be falling out of favor despite the fact that he's hit .306/.405/.444 over his last 12 games, as he's now been on the bench for five consecutive contests. It's possible a minor injury is preventing him from starting, but he's been able to appear off the bench in each of the last two games. Tyler O'Neill remains the center fielder Saturday.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Remains on bench

    Carlson will sit for the fourth straight game Friday against Atlanta, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

    Either Carlson has suddenly lost his manager's trust despite his .790 OPS over his last 13 games, or he's dealing with an unreported injury. Tyler O'Neill will again slide to center field in his absence, with Corey Dickerson getting another start in left.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Sitting for third straight game

    Carlson remains out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Carlson came off the bench in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader and sat out Wednesday's 7-1 loss, so his continued absence from the lineup for the series finale could indicate that he's dealing with some sort of physical issue. At this stage, the Cardinals haven't indicated that Carlson is dealing with an injury, but manager Oliver Marmol could shed more light on the situation before or after Thursday's contest. Tyler O'Neill will draw a third straight start in center field in Carlson's stead.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: On bench Wednesday

    Carlson isn't starting Wednesday against the Cubs, John Denton of MLB.com reports.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Not starting nightcap

    Carlson is out of the lineup for Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Carlson began the day with a .655 OPS through 18 games in August and then went 0-for-4 during Chicago's Game 1 victory. Tyler O'Neill will man center field in the nightcap while Corey Dickerson starts in left.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Gets rare day off

    Carlson is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Tyler O'Neill will shift over from left field to cover center while Carlson sits for the first time since Aug. 11. While starting the past eight games, Carlson slashed .313/.378/.406 with a home run, a stolen base, six runs and three RBI.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Adds steal Thursday

    Carlson went 2-for-4 with an RBI, a stolen base, two runs scored and a walk in Thursday's 13-0 win over the Rockies.

    Carlson's steal was his first since June 28. The outfielder has had a relatively quiet August, hitting .204 with two home runs, six RBI, nine runs scored and an 8:11 BB:K through 14 contests. For the season, he's slashing .243/.316/.397 with eight homers, five steals, 37 RBI and 45 runs scored through 97 games.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Knocks three hits

    Carlson went 3-for-5 in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Rockies.

    Carlson wasn't directly involved in any run production Tuesday, but he was able to set the table well from the leadoff spot. The outfielder has hit safely in consecutive games for the first time since July 26-27. He's been in a tough slump in August, going 9-for-48 (.188) with four extra-base hits in 12 contests. The 23-year-old is at a .241/.310/.398 slash line with eight home runs, 36 RBI, 42 runs scored and four stolen bases through 384 plate appearances. Despite his poor hitting lately, Carlson still appears to be the Cardinals' preferred leadoff hitter versus lefties.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Hits solo home run

    Carlson went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 6-3 victory over the Brewers.

    Carlson was one of three Cardinals batters to hit solo homers in Sunday's contest. His was the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was Carlson's second homer of the month, his first since Aug. 2, and his eighth of the year. The outfielder has struggled to get things going this month, batting .140 and striking out 10 times while picking up just six hits. Each month's batting average has regressed since he hit .314 in May, resulting in a .236 average on the season.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Receives Thursday off

    Carlson is out of the lineup for Thursday's game at Colorado, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Carlson started the past 22 games and went 0-for-9 with a walk and two strikeouts across the first two games of the series against the Rockies, and he'll take a seat for Thursday's finale. Tyler O'Neill will shift to center field while Corey Dickerson starts in left.

  • Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Goes yard in win

    Carlson went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 6-0 win over the Cubs.

    Carlson doubled the Cardinals' lead from two to four runs with his fifth-inning blast. The outfielder has collected at least one RBI in five of his last six games. For the season, he's slashing .250/.317/.413 with seven homers, 33 RBI, 37 runs scored and four stolen bases in 334 plate appearances. Carlson started the year as the primary right fielder, but with Harrison Bader (foot) traded to the Yankees on Tuesday, it appears Carlson will settle into an everyday role in center.
