Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals

Drafted by the Montreal Expos in the 14th round of the 1996 Major League Baseball amateur draft, Carroll would make his Major League Baseball debut with the Expos on September 11, 2002 against the Chicago Cubs. He played third base and got two hits in three at-bats in that game. His first hit was a single to left field in the fourth inning against Alan Benes.

On October 3, 2004, Carroll scored the last ever run for the Expos franchise, as they were later relocated to Washington, D.C. Carroll was also the on-deck batter when Endy Chávez made the final out in Expos history at Shea Stadium.

Colorado Rockies

On February 11, 2006, Carroll was traded to the Colorado Rockies for cash considerations.

He finished the 2006 season with a .300 batting average, 5 home runs, 36 RBI, and 10 stolen bases. Carroll also hit particularly well at Coors Field, finishing with a .375 clip in Denver compared to the .220 mark he amassed on the road. He played third base, shortstop, and second base, seeing by far the most action at second, where he appeared 109 times and made 102 starts. He committed just three errors as a second baseman, five overall.

In August 2007, Carroll hit his first career Grand Slam as a pinch hitter against Chicago Cubs' pitcher Rich Hill in the sixth inning. The Rockies won that game, 15-2, as Carroll finished the game 1-2 with 2 runs and 5 runs batted in.

Carroll won the 2007 Wild card for the Rockies on October 1, 2007 with a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Matt Holliday, to give the Rockies a 9-8 13 inning victory over the Padres.
