The St. Louis Cardinals activated outfielder Dylan Carlson off the injured list before Friday’s game. Carlson has not played since May 21 after suffering a hamstring injury. However, Carlson will return to full-time duty in the outfield. During his rehab stint in Double-A, Carlson didn’t miss a beat. In four minor league games, he went 5 for 13 with one homer and four RBI.
If Carlson can regain his pre-injury form, he could significantly boost the Cardinals amidst a tight divisional race with the Milwaukee Brewers. Carlson was hitting .314 with a .837 OPS in May.
St. Louis Cardinals Divisional Odds
Carlson’s return will only aid the Cardinals in their pursuit of an NL Central title. They sit a half-game behind the Brewers but are +155 to win the division. Those odds have great value when you consider each team’s direction.
