St. Louis Cardinals: The very unlikely path for Carlson to start with Cards

For the first time in a while, the St. Louis Cardinals have a highly touted prospect who is a position player, not a pitcher like the majority of the team’s top 100 prospects of the past decade.

Since the tragic story of Oscar Taveras, the Cardinals haven’t had any prospects like Dylan Carlson. I’ve had the pleasure of following Carlson from when he was drafted to now and to see him gain national attention is fantastic.

Carlson showed all the signs of a great hitter at the majority of the minor league levels without ever putting up superstar numbers until the 2019 season.
