Carlson's father Jeff has been the baseball coach at Elk Grove (Calif.) High outside of Sacramento for a dozen years and also coaches the JV football team and is the varsity defensive coordinator. The younger Carlson, an Under Armour All-American last summer, is a scouts' favorite for his makeup and tools. He has started to fill in his 6-foot-3, 195-pound frame, and he has a sound swing from both sides of the plate with growing strength. He's not exceptionally twitchy but has baseball athleticism with near-average speed and average arm strength in the outfield. Carlson could be a premium defender at first base or fit on an outfield corner, and he could stick in center field short-term for Cal State Fullerton. Scouts see a baseball rat who turns 18 in October and inherited some of his father's sports savvy and passion and combines it with toughness he got him his mother Caryn, a breast cancer survivor now fighting transverse myelitis, an inflammatory disorder that has limited her to a wheelchair.
