Carl is an athletic and talented 2022 3B prospect. At the hot corner, Carl is on time with his prep step and presents a low/early glove. He has a good first step to the ball, works from the ground up, and funnels the ball into his body. At the plate, Carl starts in an athletic stance, loads his hands back into the drive position, and creates rhythm in his load. He uses the lower half, keeps the barrel on plane with the ball, and stays balanced through contact. He has good feel at the plate and is aggressive in fastball counts. Carl has a high baseball IQ and will continue to improve with experience. We hope to see his progress in the future.
