In 1998, Caruso was called up by the White Sox at the age of 20 to become their everyday starting shortstop. He finished third in the Major League Baseball Rookie of the Year Award balloting. However, his career in Chicago only lasted two years. He reemerged back into the Major Leagues in 2002 with the Royals, but only played in 12 games.
After two years out of the game, Caruso began a comeback attempt. He played the 2007 season for the South Georgia Peanuts of the independent South Coast League. However, the South Coast League only lasted one season before suspending operations. He then played for the Joliet JackHammers.
