YearComment
2014 Robert Carson misses as often with his fastball as with any of his other “pitches,” but when the fastball misses, it’s within the strike zone. As you can imagine, that’s becoming a problem.
2013 Carson is a big, powerful man who made the transition to relief last year and should have a shot at Byrdak's job this season. He can bring the heat, averaging 95 mph on the fastball, but he doesn't have much idea where it's going, and his secondary stuff (slider, theoretical change) needs work. But hey, did you notice that he's a big, powerful lefty who throws 95? Those guys tend to get chances after chances just in case they ever figure out how to harness their stuff.
2012 Despite Carson putting up ERAs over five in each of the last two seasons, the Mets added him to the 40-man roster in the offseason. After all, big, physical left-handers who can throw 92-94 mph don't exactly grow on trees. Youth is still on Carson's side, but he's yet to develop pitches to compliment the fastball, and he's consistently struggled with his command. He's a frustrating type: He has the body and stamina to start, but his actual skill set could push him to the bullpen as early as this year.
2010 Rob Carson is a projectable lefty with plus velocity who needs to find something else to go with it like the Lone Ranger needs Tonto.
