Carlson was profiled by Baseball America's Hudson Belinsky and that article appears today:

For those that are not subscribers to BA the short of the article:

 

Carlson has a close relationship to fellow Minnesota pitcher Logan Shore

Carlson changeup is advanced as he started throwing that before a breaking ball

Carlson slider got help from Shore

Carlson started doing Yoga to help with his poor flexibility this offseason

Carlson is big fan of long toss and Driveline pulldowns (throwing with weighed balls)

Carlson FB was mid 90's this spring, 

Carlson SL was low 80's this spring, graded a future 50-55 on the 80 scale (last year was 35-40)

Carlson CH graded a future plus pitch
