Carroll is a good example of the adage, "If you're good, they'll find you." He was absent from the showcase circuit and pitched for his American Legion team last summer, but plenty of scouts were in on him this spring. An excellent athlete who also excels in basketball, Carroll is raw but physical at 6-foot-4, 205 pounds, drawing comparisons to a young Lee Smith. He has a strong arm and sits in the low 90s, touching 95 mph. His secondary stuff needs work, but he has shown two breaking balls with at least average potential. His curveball has power tilt with tight, three-quarters break when it's on. His changeup will need work. The jury seems to be split on Carroll and he lost some steam later in the season, but he has no Division I college commitment and should be signable in the fourth to sixth round.
