Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: In player pool, as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson was included in the player pool that will report the Cardinals' summer camp July 1, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

Carlson's status as one of the organization's elite prospects renders this move unsurprising, and it officially confirms the promising outfielder will have a legitimate opportunity to stake a claim for a spot on the 30-man Opening Day roster. However, it's worth noting that Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports Carlson could begin the regular season with a Triple-A designation as a procedural move; service-time rules in place for 2020 dictate a team could gain an extra year of control if a player spends at least seven days assigned to a minor-league team in the organization.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Chances of '20 debut increase
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson is considered "a lock" for the big-league club this coming regular season now that expanded rosters are strongly expected to be implemented, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reports.

Saxon adds that the one challenge attached to getting the promising 21-year-old into the big-league ranks this season is the fact he's not on the 40-man roster. That means bringing Carlson into the fold will necessitate another player being removed from the 40-man or getting placed on the 60-day injured list. Nevertheless, it appears highly likely the organization will opt to take this step, which will give Carlson a potential head start on a big-league career that otherwise may not have begun until September at the earliest if the season had unfolded normally. Although Carlson has only logged 79 plate appearances at the Triple-A level, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports he's already made a significant impression on the major-league coaching staff, including former outfielder Willie McGee. "Oh, man. Hits the ball hard from both sides of the plate. Runs better than it looks,"McGee said. "Outstanding outfielder. Just a good athlete. And the most impressive thing about him is that he's a lot more mature than his age. He's ahead of the game, mentally, knowing situations."

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Could benefit from roster expansion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson could be one of the Cardinals' prime beneficiaries if MLB expands rosters beyond 26 players for the 2020 season, Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The surging outfielder appeared to already be setting up a difficult choice for manager Mike Shildt and his staff due to his strong play before spring training was suspended, as he hit .313 (10-for-32) over 12 Grapefruit League contests. Carlson's primary obstacles to winning the starting left field job are the more experienced Tyler O'Neill and Lane Thomas, but the potential availability of a few extra roster spots could conceivably lead to all three players remaining at the big-league level in 2020. Gordon points out another factor in Carlson's favor, albeit one that's still purely speculative, is the possibility the minor-league season gets cancelled outright this year; such a development would seemingly increase the likelihood Carlson is kept in a setting where he can continue to further his development.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Still in play for roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson was still in contention for an Opening Day roster spot in left field when spring training was suspended, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

The promising prospect's chances were helped by the recent optioning of Austin Dean and Justin Williams to Triple-A Memphis, as well as the fact he hit .313 (10-for-32) with three doubles, a triple, an RBI, six walks and 11 runs across 12 Grapefruit League contests. Carlson is competing with more seasoned candidates Tyler O'Neill and Lane Thomas for the spot, but the gap in experience between the 21-year-old and his pair of teammates isn't such that it's insurmountable if Carlson continues thriving during whatever ramp-up period there may eventually be to the regular season.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Continues impressing in job battle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson is hitting .400 (8-for-20) with three doubles, a triple, an RBI, five walks and nine runs over his first eight Grapefruit League games.

Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports Carlson has played in all three outfield spots thus far in spring and impressed with his defense, while he'll enter Thursday's action having reached base in eight consecutive plate appearances. Carlson may force the Cardinals' hand if he continues wielding a similarly hot bat, although the competition for any open outfield spots figures to continue until the end of Grapefruit League play.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Tearing up spring pitching
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson, who went 1-for-1 with two walks and a run in a Grapefruit League loss to the Braves on Thursday, also has a triple and double over his last five plate appearances, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

The red-hot prospect is now hitting .455 in Grapefruit League play following Thursday's production, making a very strong early case for a spot on the Opening Day roster. The 21-year-old dominated during a brief stint at Triple-A Memphis last season, slashing .361/.418/.681 across 79 plate appearances over 18 games. Carlson was also in big-league camp until the final day last spring and got 44 at-bats under his belt against major-league arms, with that experience seemingly paying off early this year. Goold reports Carlson is under consideration to break camp with the team if he's able to outplay a multitude of other outfield candidates, but even if he starts the campaign back in Memphis, it seems highly likely he makes his Cardinals regular-season debut at some point in 2020.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Invited to major-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson received an invitation to big-league camp Friday.

Carlson is still just 21 years old, but he could be given legitimate consideration for an Opening Day roster spot. The Cardinals can certainly play service-time games with him, as he's only appeared in 18 games at the Triple-A level, but his .292/.372/.542 slash line at the two highest levels of the minors last season suggests he's very close to big-league ready.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Big-league candidate for 2020
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson, who's slashing .385/.439/.654 across his first 57 plate appearances at Triple-A Memphis, is expected to compete for a spot on the 2020 Opening Day roster, Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Dispatch reports.

The switch-hitting phenom just added Texas League Player of the Year honors to his extensive list of minor-league accomplishments Tuesday, as he continues to raise expectations at every stop in the organizational ranks. Carlson earned his latest accolade by pacing the league in home runs (21) and slugging percentage (.518), numbers that still top the leaderboard multiple weeks after the 20-year-old was promoted to Triple-A Memphis from Double-A Springfield. Carlson has already received an invite to the Arizona Fall League as well, but the organization is still contemplating whether to allow him to participate or have him rest up after his eventful campaign and begin preparing to compete for a big-league roster spot next spring. It's also worth noting Carlson has earned recent praise for his defensive work, as he's impressed while shifting over to center field with the Redbirds following Harrison Bader's return to the majors.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Jaw-dropping tear since promotion
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson is hitting .552 (16-for-29) with three doubles, one triple, two home runs, six RBI, four walks and eight runs over his first seven games with Triple-A Memphis.

The highly promising 20-year-old has made a mockery of Triple-A pitching early, with his 3-for-4, two-RBI, two-run effort against Round Rock on Wednesday serving as his sixth consecutive multi-hit tally. Carlson was slashing a solid .281/.364/.518 with 21 homers and 59 RBI with Double-A Springfield before his promotion to the Redbirds, but early returns in Memphis seem to imply he could be even better at the level closest to the majors for the balance of the minor-league campaign.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson was promoted from Double-A Springfield to Triple-A Memphis on Thursday, Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com reports.

The promotion is well-deserved, as the 20-year-old prospect looked more than comfortable in his first Double-A stint, posting a .281/.364/.518 slash line with 18 steals and a league-leading 21 home runs in 108 games for Springfield. Carlson should finish out the year at Memphis.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Slugs pair of homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson, who's hitting .317 overall in his last 10 games at Double-A Springfield, went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs in a win over Amarillo on Wednesday.

Carlson left the yard in the first and fifth innings for the first multi-homer game of his young career. The 20-year-old's first exposure to Double-A pitching this season has been a rousing success, as he's now slashing .291/.371/.529 with 41 extra-base hits (19 doubles along with a career-high six triples and 16 homers), 51 RBI, 40 walks, 13 stolen bases and 69 runs across 86 games.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Gets Futures Game nomination
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson received an invite to the 2019 All-Star Futures Game on Friday, Shaun O'Neill of MLB.com reports.

The promising outfielder is enjoying a solid season at Double-A Springfield, slashing .287/.367/.507 with 32 extra-base hits (15 doubles, six triples, 11 home runs) and 44 RBI. This is Carlson's first season at the Double-A level after splitting 2018 between Low-A Peoria and High-A Palm Beach, and both his current batting average and slugging percentage encouragingly qualify as career bests.

Cardinals' Dylan Carlson: Strong season at Double-A level
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carlson, the 33rd overall pick in the 2016 first-year player draft, is slashing .291/.370/.539 with 27 extra-base hits (12 doubles, six triples, nine home runs) and 37 RBI across 238 plate appearances with Double-A Springfield.

The multi-talented prospect also has 10 stolen bases in 13 attempts and has scored an impressive 41 runs overall, validating his current standing as Rotowire's No. 3 prospect in the Cardinals organization. All three components of Carlson's current line qualify as career-best figures, and his nine homers also equal a high-water mark. Given his success with Springfield thus far, a promotion to Triple-A Memphis before season's end certainly wouldn't be out of the question.
