6/14/16 - Carson is a 6-foot-3 170-pound left-handed hitting first baseman and left handed pitcher in Kansas’ 2018 class.  He ran a 7.53 60 and a 4.76 home-to-first.  He has an 82 mph exit velo. At the plate, gap-to-gap approach at the plate, mostly contact to the middle of the field, repeats swing, short and early stride, long and lean projectable build.  At first base, 81 mph positional velo, moves well to the ball, plays through the catch, high three quarters release, accurate throws. On the mound, Carlson comes from a high three-quarters arm slot, long and loose frame capable of adding strength, over-the-head wind-up, quick arm speed, fastball at 78-80 mph, downhill plane, showed command of breaking ball, 2-to-8 shape, late and sharp break, change up flashed arm side release, 66-70 mph, near fastball arm speed, repeats delivery, body stays under control, attacked the zone in game action, tallied three strikeouts in game.

10/19/14 - Carson is a thin, athletic 6-foot, 140-pound left-handed pitcher. Old school hands over the head wind-up with rhythm, tall balance point, natural three-quarters slot, athletic finish. Mechanically sound up-tempo delivery. Fastball has early arm side run and, at times, cutting action, 71-76 mph. Change-up with early arm side sink, 64-65 mph. Command of both pitches. Put in the top performance of the day on the mound recording nine outs in 27 pitches, throwing 67% strikes (including an impressive seven out of eight change-ups for strikes). Size, strength and velocity will come but feel for pitching and getting outs is already in place for this class of 2018 prospect.
