Carson continues to shine on the diamond. At the plate is where he continues to show best through an athletic, crouched setup. Hands are quick (81 mph exit velocity) and work through an aggressive swing path. He stays inside the ball, utilizing all fields through a line drive approach. In the OF, he takes proper routes / angels in tracking down balls. He works to get behind balls but needs to play through more with his body. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. Throws are accurate, flashing carry but will benefit by building more arm strength through a long toss program.

Strong, athletic baseball build. He had a very repeatable inside the ball swing and could barrel up the ball to all fields. Took an aggressive swing without being out of control as well. Played multiple positions on the day and showed above average defense at both first base and centerfield. Was constantly hustling around the field and to his position. When he is ready for college, he will be a versatile and well rounded player.
