Bad – Dylan Carlson at the plate
While Carlson has been a tremendous asset in the center field, he has been struggling mightily at the plate. The struggles earned Carlson a day off to reset on Thursday.
On Tuesday, Carlson was 0-for-4 with a walk and two strikeouts. He left five runners on the base path. Carlson’s performance Wednesday was worse. He was 0-for-5 with a walk. He left six runners on base.
The Cardinals will need Carlson not just for his defensive skills but will need him to step it up at the plate over the next few weeks. Hopefully, a day to reset will help.
