2012 Jesse Carlson underwent rotator cuff surgery in May and missed the entire season. The Red Sox picked him up looking for a LOOGY, and his career .233/301/.359 line versus lefties could come in handy, but he'll have to beat out a number of other southpaws to prove it.
2011 If youíre a lefty who can touch 90 mph and locate a sidearm fastball, you get plenty of opportunities to compete for spots in major-league bullpens. Carlson had a nice year pitching mostly in Triple-A, proving that his command-and-control style coupled with an unusual delivery still make him a decent LOOGY candidate, especially since his historical splits are too small to generate useful information. He earned an August call-up, during which he more or less did his thing: all that comes out of Carlson's hand is junk, but itís usually in the strike zone. Thatís been enough for countless bullpen arms in the past, so whoís to deny Carlson a few more useful years as a situational lefty?
2010 After his opponents hit just .232 on balls in play in 2008, Carlson suffered a significant and wholly expected BABIP correction in 2009. That his ERA more than doubled from 2008 can be explained by that, a few missing strikeouts, and the fact that he was still used as a LOOGY despite a slight reverse split (lefties hit .272/.333/.421 against him). Carlson is no specialty pitcher. If anything, heís a younger, left-handed version of Camp minus those extra grounders, which is to say that he's an utterly average relief pitcher.
2009 Carlson finally made it to The Show in his seventh professional season and with his fourth organization (not counting his previous stint in the Jaysí system in 2005). He didn't just make it, eitheróhe had an excellent rookie season as the second lefty in the Jaysí pen, stranding 82 percent of his inherited runners (the fifth-best mark in the AL) and finishing third on the Jays in WXRL behind Downs and Ryan. The trio helped make the Toronto pen one of the ten best in the majors in 2008. While itís great when a bunch of your marginal relief arms come through with strong seasons, itís a bad sign for the following year, because they're likely to regress.
2006 Carlson is an object lesson in why ERA is a poor metric to use in evaluating relievers. In three of his last five stops, his ERA has been 1.83 or lower. The other two times it`s been 4.82 or higher. What matters here is that Carlson has promising peripherals and seems to have left that nasty walk rate from Round Rock behind him. Despite playing for his third organization in four years as a pro, he could be a solid bullpen option.
