A homer and double last night. In the last three weeks, Carlson is slugging .613.

BA today...

St. Louis Cardinals

— OF Dylan Carlson collected a hit and scored a run on Tuesday, but his real eye-popping moments came on defense. All three of Carlson’s strongest throws of the season came in the game, including an 86.6 mph bolt to nab Hunter Dozier trying to take third base on a sacrifice fly to left center. Carlson broke off an 88.6 mph throw in the game as well.

The battle for 5th place--and the first reserve pick---is an important one.  In PCL, it's the difference between activating Dylan Carlson this weekend and waiting a year, or two, or ever, for Josiah Gray.

There was likely a better prospect selected after we picked Gray, but it's not obvious who it might be. 

It *was* obvious Carlson wasn't going to drop to our third pick in the reserve.

Penciled into the lineup today, playing left field, batting sixth.

In the Cardinal's sixth game of the season.

Is that enough time to delay Carson's free agency?

Worry not, Rotoworld. He's not available. Anywhere.

08.13: Cardinals president of baseball operations John Mozeliak confirmed that Dylan Carlson will be called up when they're cleared to resume. (This
was reported on Wednesday night by multiple outlets, but Mozeliak
confirms the report. The switch-hitting outfielder is the top prospect
in the system, and he's a player who can hit for both average and power
while also providing some steals. The Cardinals aren't likely going to
call up Carlson without having him be a regular, so he's absolutely
worth an add on fantasy roster in leagues he's available. )

Will Dylan Carlson be the first pick in the PCL reserve round?  Is there any other choice assuming some significant everyday player doesn't get overlooked during the auction?  We will see in about 7 hours since I have that first pick.

It makes sense, since there won't be a minor league season, for all the promising prospects, no matter how far down, to be on the taxi squad, it not the expanded active roster.

There will be a lot of 60-day ILs.

Carlson (OF) STL - May. 12


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.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: 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."

In the old days, LynchMob would write down the second to last bidder on players he won at auction as possible trade partners for later in the season.

I don't remember, I'm afraid. I've been afraid to ask if the auction records of bids are something Fantrax can let us have, mostly because I figure they don't keep them. In most cases, why should they? But I'm going to ask. I'm now unafraid. There is interesting info in their, stuff Alex has always tried to track, but doing it manually is kind of impossible beyond Nominated and Last Bid.

Peter, was Brian Walton the one bidding against you in Tout for Carlson?
