  • Cardinals Notes: O'Neill, Yepez, Romero, Flaherty

    Headshot for Alec Burleson

    The Cardinals announced this morning that they have placed outfielder Tyler O’Neill on the 10-day injured list with a right foot sprain. First baseman Juan Yepez was recalled from Triple-A in the corresponding move. The sprain presumably brings O’Neill’s 2023 campaign to a close, given the limited time remaining on the regular season schedule. Despite…

  • Dylan Carlson To Undergo Ankle Surgery

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson will undergo surgery on his injured left ankle, skipper Oli Marmol told reporters (including Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch). The procedure comes with a recovery time between two and three months. If all goes as anticipated, he should be ready for Spring Training. It’s an expected development. Carlson has been…

  • Dylan Carlson To Have Season-Ending Ankle Surgery

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (ankle) will undergo season-ending left-ankle surgery, according to manager Oliver Marmol. It makes sense for Carlson to get the injury addressed after dealing with left-ankle issues since all the way back in the middle of May. Barring any setbacks in the offseason, Carlson should be ready for spring training next year. The 24-year-old had a rough 2023 campaign for the Cardinals, hitting just .219 (48-for-219) with five home runs, 27 RBI, three stolen bases and 27 runs scored in 76 games played in his fourth season in the major leagues with St. Louis. The former first-round selection will need to get healthy first before the 2024 season before he jumps back on the fantasy radar.

  • Dylan Carlson Avoids Surgery

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (ankle/oblique) has avoided season-ending surgery after receiving an injection in his left ankle, according to MLB.com. The former top prospect has been on the IL since earlier this month after straining his oblique but is also dealing with a lingering ankle issue. Carlson hopes to return this season and improve on his .219/.318/.333 slash line, but there's no timetable at the moment. The 24-year-old hasn't done much of anything offensively, as he's gone deep just five times and has recorded 27 runs, 27 RBI, and three steals across 76 games.

  • Dylan Carlson Could Get Season-Ending Surgery

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (ankle/oblique) is considering going for season-ending surgery on his injured left ankle. The 24-year-old originally landed on the 10-day injured list on Aug. 12 with a left oblique strain, but he is also still bothered by soreness stemming from a left ankle sprain he suffered back on May 24. In a lost season for the Cardinals and with an eye towards 2024, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Carlson opt for the surgery at this stage. The former first-round pick's 2023 return remains up in the air, and season-long fantasy managers should probably be looking to let go. The switch-hitting Carlson put forth a promising 2021, but he's barely been fantasy relevant this year in hitting .219 (48-for-219) with five home runs, 27 RBI, 27 runs scored, and three stolen bases.

  • Dylan Carlson Still Dealing With Soreness

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (ankle, oblique) is dealing with some recurring soreness in the left ankle he sprained in May as well as his oblique. It's unclear which injury is the more pressing concern, but both injuries will likely need to improve before he's cleared to return from the injured list. It's more disappointing news in what has been a disappointing season in 2023 for the 24-year-old. The switch-hitting outfielder is hitting just .219 (48-for-219) with five home runs, 27 RBI, three stolen bases and 27 runs scored. The Cardinals just placed him on the 10-day injured list last Saturday, but it doesn't look like he'll return until at least September at this rate. He's not a must-hold in deep-mixed leagues.

    Dylan Carlson will miss at least the next “couple weeks” due to a left oblique strain, the Cardinals outfielder told MLB.com and other media today.  St. Louis placed Carlson on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to August 10) and called up Luken Baker as the roster replacement, giving Carlson some proper time off after he…

  • Dylan Carlson Out A Couple Of Weeks

    Headshot for Alec Burleson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson (oblique) is expected to be out for "at least a couple of weeks" with a strained left oblique. Carlson said he felt something while taking a swing during Wednesday's win over the Rays. The 24-year-old has been sidelined since and likely won't return until September. He has struggled this season, slashing .219/.318/.333 with five home runs, 27 RBI, 27 runs, and three stolen bases over 76 games in 2023. Alec Burleson should see an uptick in playing time while Carlson is sidelined. Burleson is slashing .244/.292/.413 over 261 plate appearances in 2023.

  • Dylan Carlson Being Pursued By Yankees

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson is being targeted by the New York Yankees prior to Tuesday's 6 pm ET MLB trade deadline. The 24-year-old outfielder, along with fellow 24-year-old outfielder Alex Burleson, have reportedly been the names most discussed by the Cardinals at the moment. For his part, Carlson has three more years of club control attached to him following the 2023 season, which hasn't been his best at the plate. The 2016 first-round pick is hitting .230 with five homers, three stolen bases, and a .673 OPS across 232 trips to the plate this season but owns a superior .245 average with 34 homers, 11 steals, and a .721 OPS across 381 career games played.

  • Alec Burleson, Dylan Carlson Being Heavily Discussed In Trade Talks

    Headshot for Alec Burleson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielders Alec Burleson and Dylan Carlson are the two names being most discussed by the club in trade talks following their deal of Paul DeJong to the Toronto Blue Jays. It was been widely known the Cardinals are full-blown sellers amidst a disappointing season while the club has also shipped left-hander Jordan Montgomery to the Texas Rangers and reliever Jordan Hicks to the Blue Jays. Both Burleson and Carlson have multiple years of club control attached to them, meaning a return for the young outfielders would need to be rather significant. Burleson, 24, is hitting .239 with six homers and a .685 OPS in 74 games while Carlson, also 24, is hitting .230 with five homers, three stolen bases, and a .673 OPS across 69 contests on the campaign.

  • Yankees Looking For Left-Handed Hitter

    Headshot for Cody Bellinger

    The New York Yankees are casting a wide net on the trade market as they search for a left-handed hitter to help jumpstart their offense. Chicago Cubs outfielder Cody Bellinger has been mentioned as a possibility, but he could be off the market with the Cubs in the mix for a wild-card spot. If Bellinger is truly unavailable, the Yankees could turn to St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson or Washington Nationals third baseman Jeimer Candelario. Candelario would be a solid defensive addition at third base as well. Veteran Josh Donaldson (calf) might not be able to make it back this year, so the Yankees could surely use an upgrade at the hot corner as they attempt to make a run at the postseason down the stretch.

  • Dylan Carlson Missing From Thursday's Lineup

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson is not seen in Thursday's lineup against the Chicago Cubs. Tyler O'Neill (back) returns from a lengthy absence to park in left field and hit seventh. O'Neill's comeback spells bad news for the playing time of Carlson, who already wasn't occupying an everyday role in his stead. The former first-round pick has seen his name involved in some trade speculation, and a move from St. Louis might be beneficial for his fantasy prospects considering his current standing on the depth chart. Even so, Carlson is slashing a fairly nondescript .236/.344/.365 with five home runs, 21 RBI, and three stolen bases in 209 plate appearances this season.

  • Yankees Could Pursue Dylan Carlson At Trade Deadline

    Headshot for Dylan Carlson

    The New York Yankees could be interested in trading for St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Dylan Carlson, a source told MLB.com's Mark Feinsand on Monday. The Yankees have dealt with injuries and poor performance in the outfield this season and Carlson will likely lose his starting role now that Tyler O'Neill is back from the injured list. The former top prospect has put up an uninspiring .243/.350/.376 slash line five home runs, 21 RBI, and three stolen bases in 203 plate appearances this season. While a change of scenery could always provide benefits, Calrson's overall fantasy value would still remain relatively low even if he were to be traded.
