If you're hardcore: Carroll, Evans
Brett Carroll, OF, FLA -- The latest addition to the Marlins' parade of outfielders, Carroll will probably only play sparingly at first, backing up Jeremy Hermida and Josh Willingham at the outfield corners. However, a well-timed hot streak could earn him playing time in center at Reggie Abercrombie's expense. Carroll is a lesser-known prospect with good power, a rocket arm and very bad plate discipline. The 24-year-old is best suited for a corner position, but has good range and can handle center field if needed. Because of his plus power, he has an outside chance to become a major league regular. I'm not really optimistic, however, due to his .241 career average in the minors and lousy plate discipline. Abercrombie doesn't have a stranglehold on the job, and Hermida can't seem to stay healthy, so Carroll is worth a flier; bid conservatively, however, and don't bother in keeper leagues unless you're looking for immediate help.
