The Diamondbacks are calling in their front-runner outfielder Corbyn Carroll from Triple-A Reno on Monday, according to a report by MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert.
Carroll, 22, was the 16th pick in the 2019 draft and is considered one of the top prospects in all of baseball. He comes in as baseball’s third prospect on Monday, according to the MLB rankings.
After the 2020 minor league baseball season was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Carroll missed most of the 2021 season with a shoulder injury.
However, 2022 has proven to be a pivotal year for Carol. Carroll started his year with a double-A on the Amarillo Sod Poodle. Carroll batted .307 with 24 home runs and 62 RBIs in 2022 in Double-A and Triple-A combined.
“He obviously went to Triple-A and adapted quickly,” Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen said Sunday. It will be difficult to find players who are likely to get past the system,” he added.
The Diamondbacks, aged 59-67, are currently No. 4 in the National League West, but with Carroll’s call-up, they’re intriguing for the final month of the season in Arizona.
