The New York Mets drafted Carson in the 14th round of the 2007 MLB Draft out of Hattiesburg High School.[1] He started the 2012 season with the Class-AA Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League.[2] The Mets first promoted him to the majors on April 24, but he didn't make an appearance before he was sent back to Binghamton.[3] On May 17, Carson was recalled back to New York, and D. J. Carrasco was designated for assignment.[4] Carson made his major league debut on May 18, 2012, when he pitched a scoreless inning of relief against the Toronto Blue Jays in a 14-5 Mets loss.[5]

Carson started the 2013 season with the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s, and was called up by the Mets on April 21 when Aaron Laffey was designated for assignment.[6] In June 2013, Carson was sent down again to Triple-A Las Vegas.[7] In parts of two seasons with the Mets, he pitched in 31 games with a 6.82 ERA.

Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim[edit]

Carson was claimed off waivers by the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on October 17, 2013. He pitched in 14 games for the AAA Salt Lake Bees and was 0-1 with a 10.34 ERA. The Angels released him on May 10, 2014.[8]
