He finished with a .313/.436/.469 slash line over 39 trips to the plate, scoring 11 times and driving in one run. He also drew a Top 100-best six walks while striking out just five times, and he logged three doubles and a triple. Carlson spent most of 2019 with Double-A Springfield, but saw some time with Triple-A Memphis, batting .292/.372/.542 with 26 homers, 95 runs and 68 RBIs.
