The Outfield Fly Ruling
Drafted in the 21st round of the 2016 draft out of Utah, Carroll had a workmanlike career in the PAC-12. He performed well in his Rookie ball debut (2.93 ERA, 26:7 K:BB in 27.2 IP), but that may have represented a step down for a major conference starter now pitching exclusively out of the pen. By his own admission, he’ll need to work on some offspeed offerings to move up the ladder. (B. Blackwell, 4/17)
