Powers offense in win
July 22, 2021
Carlson went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, two doubles and an additional run scored in Thursday's 3-2 win over the Cubs.
ANALYSIS
The outfielder opened the scoring with a leadoff home run in the bottom of the first inning. Carlson was also on base for Nolan Arenado's third-inning blast. The three-hit effort lifted Carlson's batting average to .259, and he's added nine homers, 38 RBI and 49 runs scored through 402 plate appearances this year. He's remained a fixture at or near the top of the order, often serving as the leadoff hitter versus right-handed pitchers.

His BABIB before we get today's stat feed is .000.

BA's daily prospect report...

Dylan Carlson, CF, Cardinals: It’s been an unusual start to the season for Carlson. He’s hitting only .182 with a .269 on-base percentage, but he’s also been one of the Cardinals’ best hitters thanks to three home runs and (on Thursday) his first double of the season. He’s slugging .636.

At 22 years, 160 days, he became the youngest Cards player to go deep on Opening Day in 85 years!

Dylan Carlson, OF, Cardinals — Carlson homered off of Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara on Monday for his second homer of the spring and his second in his past two games. The young Cardinals outfielder is having an excellent spring training. The homer raised his slash line to .294/.385/.529.

I thought it would be Goldy second, Arenado third this year, but looking at Roster Resource I see you're right. Goldy third, Arenado fourth. And then Carlson. 

Pressure's off. Make Carlson $20.

I would hope that with Goldschmidt and Arenado making $60+ million combined - you have a cleanup hitter ;-)

The Cards desperately need a cleanup hitter.

How desperate?

Nine different cleanups hitters last year combined to bat .198. They hit eight homers and drove in 30 runs. In 192 AB they struck out 72 times.

Carlson only had one shot at it, going 0-for-4 and striking out twice.

An obvious R1 if he starts in the minors. But will he?

Still a Rook, thus still on the prospect lists.

As a Top 100 --

Baseball America: 9

Baseball Prospectus: 16

Keith Law: 9

All three lists will be in the software.

Rotoman thinks he will start in the majors and has $23 for PK5.

He's all yours, Peter. If he makes the team, he'll be $18 under AP4.

Unless he has a really great spring.
