Brett Michael Carroll is a professional baseball player from the United States of America and specializes as a right fielder mainly due to a strong throwing arm. Carroll went to the Middle Tennessee State University before declaring for the 2004 MLB Draft where he was picked in the 10th round by the Florida Marlins.
Carroll rose quickly through the minors and in 2007, spent the initial half of the season with the New Orleans Zephyrs and received a call up to play 23 games for the Marlins in the big league. His 2008 season also followed a similar pattern as Carroll started off with the Zephyrs and then played 26 games for the Marlins. His batting average had dropped from .184 in his debut season, to an incredibly low, .059, in 17 at-bats.
His first home run finally came in the 2009 season, off Randy Johnson, after he was called up, sent down and then called up again from the AAA-League affiliates. So far, his batting average has stood at .286 for the season.
