During his senior year in 2019, Carroll demonstrated exceptional performance, achieving a batting average of .540 along with nine home runs and an impressive 1.859 OPS. His exceptional skills led him to commit to UCLA, where he intended to continue his baseball career at the college level.
Carroll was chosen by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the first round of the 2019 MLB draft. He agreed to a $3.7 million contract and debuted as a professional player with the Arizona League Diamondbacks. After performing well with a batting average of .291, two home runs, 14 RBIs, and 16 stolen bases in 31 games, he was promoted to the Hillsboro Hops. In Hillsboro, he continued to impress with a batting average of .326 and six RBIs in 11 games. Overall, between both teams, Carroll recorded a batting average of .299, an on-base percentage of .409, and a slugging percentage of .487 in 154 at-bats, with 18 successful stolen bases out of 19 attempts.
In 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Carroll did not have the opportunity to play any minor league games as the season was canceled. However, he returned to Hillsboro for the 2021 season. Unfortunately, in May, he sustained a shoulder injury while hitting a home run and had to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery. At that point, he had an impressive .435 batting average for the season, going 10-for-23.
Moving on to the 2022 season, Carroll began with the Amarillo Sod Poodles but was soon promoted to the Reno Aces in July. Throughout the year, playing for three different minor league teams, he showcased his skills with a batting average of .307, an on-base percentage of .425, and a slugging percentage of .611 in 362 at-bats. He also hit 24 home runs and successfully stole 31 bases out of 36 attempts.
Carroll’s performance earned him a promotion to the major leagues on August 29, 2022, with the Diamondbacks. He made his debut that same day against the Philadelphia Phillies, going 1-for-5 with a two-RBI double. On September 7, he hit his first career home run off Yu Darvish, a solo shot against the San Diego Padres. In his 2022 season with Arizona, he had a batting average of .260, an on-base percentage of .330, and a slugging percentage of .500 in 104 at-bats. Primarily playing as a left fielder, he was also the seventh-youngest player in the National League. Carroll displayed exceptional speed, recording the fastest sprint speed in the majors at 30.7 feet/second.
Carroll’s success continued into 2023 as he signed a contract extension worth $111 million over eight years with the Diamondbacks on March 11. Moreover, he received the exciting news of being selected as a starting outfielder for his first career All-Star Game, which was announced on June 29, 2023.
In addition to being the frontrunner for the NL Rookie of the Year award and ranking fifth in the NL Outfield All Star voting, he has now earned the prestigious title of NL Player of the Week.

Corbin Carroll Injury Update
Arizona Diamondbacks All-Star outfielder Corbin Carroll managed to avoid a significant shoulder injury and will be starting in Friday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, who are visiting. During Thursday’s 9-0 loss to the New York Mets, Carroll left the game in the seventh inning after hurting his shoulder during a swing and miss. However, a clean MRI exam conducted on Friday revealed no issues.
Before the game on Friday, Arizona manager Torey Lovullo provided an update, stating, “The MRI showed no abnormalities. As for what happened, everyone was curious. Corbin experienced a sensation similar to a stinger in football… It scared Corbin and all of us. It was the right decision to take him out of the game at that moment and have him evaluated. Fortunately, he’s in the lineup today.”
Carroll will be batting second and playing center field. Describing the seventh-inning swing, he said, “On the back swing, I felt a shift in my shoulder and a sudden tingling sensation that traveled down my arm, causing my hand to go numb. I was clutching it and thought it might have dislocated. I basically assumed my season was over.”
This incident marks the second time in the span of seven days that Carroll injured his right shoulder, which had been previously operated on in 2021. Lovullo explained that Carroll’s prior shoulder issues made him immediately aware that something was wrong. “With a surgically repaired shoulder, any slight deviation throws him off due to his understanding and sensitivity to such matters,” Lovullo remarked.
Carroll has been performing impressively, batting .290 with 18 home runs, 46 RBIs, and 24 stolen bases in 83 games. He is currently the leading candidate for the National League Rookie of the Year award and has even been mentioned in the MVP race. Carroll is also eagerly anticipating the upcoming All-Star Game, which will be held in his hometown of Seattle on Tuesday.
On Friday, the Arizona Diamondbacks made several roster moves, including the promotion of outfielder Dominic Canzone and right-hander Justin Martinez from Triple-A Reno. Outfielder Dominic Fletcher was optioned to Reno, while right-hander Drey Jameson (elbow) was placed on the 15-day injured list, and left-hander Konnor Pilkington was designated for assignment. Lovullo expressed concern for Jameson, who pitched three innings of relief in Thursday’s game against the Mets.
