Shane Taylor Carle (born August 30, 1991) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB). He previously played for the Colorado Rockies.


Pittsburgh Pirates[edit]

Carle attended Scotts Valley High School in Scotts Valley, California and played college baseball at Cabrillo College and California State University, Long Beach. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the tenth round of the 2013 Major League Baseball Draft.[1] He signed and made his professional debut with the Jamestown Jammers and spent the whole season there, going 1-0 with a 2.15 ERA in 50.1 innings. In 2014, he played for the West Virginia Power and Bradenton Marauders where he compiled a 4-8 record and 3.67 ERA in 27 games (23 starts).

Colorado Rockies[edit]

On November 11, 2014 Carle was traded to the Colorado Rockies for Rob Scahill.[2] He spent the 2015 season with the New Britain Rock Cats where he was 14-7 with a 3.48 ERA in 26 starts. He also pitched in one game for the Albuquerque Isotopes at the beginning of the season. In 2016, he pitched for Albuquerque where he pitched to a 5-8 record and 5.42 ERA in 27 games (19 starts). The Rockies added him to their 40-man roster after the 2016 season.[3]

Carle began 2017 with the Isotopes and debuted at the major league level on April 14, 2017.[4] He was sent back down three days later and recalled twice more on August 5 and September 5. In 36 games for the Isotopes he was 3-5 with a 5.37 ERA, and in four innings pitched for the Rockies, he compiled a 6.75 ERA.[5]

Second stint with Pirates[edit]

On January 4, 2018, Carle was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Pirates.[6] He was designated for assignment on January 14, 2018.[7]

Atlanta Braves[edit]

On January 16, 2018, the Pirates traded Carle to the Atlanta Braves for a player to be named later or cash considerations.[8] Carle made the Opening Day roster,[9][10] and began the season in Atlanta's bullpen. He claimed his first major league victory on April 3, 2018, pitching ​3 13 innings in relief of Julio Teherán.[11] Carle made the Braves' Opening Day roster for a second time in 2019.[12] While pitching against the Philadelphia Phillies on March 30, 2019, Carle hit Rhys Hoskins with a pitch, after the previous batter, Bryce Harper, had hit a home run.[13] Home plate umpire Rob Drake promptly ejected Carle from the game.[14][15]
