With no games this spring for MLB scouts to watch Carlson, he's expected to play for North Carolina next year. In a normal year with a normal draft, Carlson could've been picked high enough to immediately go the pro route. But with Friday's announcement that the MLB Draft on June 10-11 will only be five rounds, maybe high school players won't get picked.
Carlson's older brother, Sam Carlson, was a 2017 second round pick of Seattle.
