Braves signed OF Ezequiel Carrera to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

This confirms a report from Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports. The 30-year-old Carrera was just let go by the Blue Jays, but now he'll have a chance to claim a job with the Braves. He could be a stopgap option until the Braves are ready to call up No. 1 prospect Ronald Acuna.
Mar 13 - 2:19 PM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Braves have agreed to a deal with outfielder Ezequiel Carrera.

No word yet on the terms involved. Carrera was recently cut loose by the Blue Jays after batting .282/.356/.408 over 325 plate appearances in 2017. He's capable of playing all over the outfield and makes for a useful bench player.
Mar 13 - 2:10 PM

Blue Jays released OF Ezequiel Carrera.

Carrera cleared waivers and was outrighted off the 40-man roster after being designated for assignment last month, but the Jays have decided now to cut him loose. The 30-year-old should be able to latch on with another organization quickly.
Mar 11 - 10:55 AM

Blue Jays sent OF Ezequiel Carrera outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

Carrera was designated for assignment last week but will return to Blue Jays camp as a non-roster invitee. The 30-year-old hit .282 with eight homers, 20 RBI and 10 steals across 131 games for Toronto in 2017.

Blue Jays designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Seung Hwan Oh. Carrera hit a solid .282/.356/.408 over 325 plate appearances for the Blue Jays last season and is slated to make a relatively modest $1.9 million in 2018, but Toronto didn't see room for him in their crowded outfield. There could be some trade interest in Carrera from other clubs.
Feb 26 - 7:13 PM

Blue Jays and OF Ezequiel Carrera avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.9 million contract.

Carrera was arbitration-eligible for the second time. The 30-year-old batted .282/.356/.408 with eight homers and 10 steals in 2017 and is slated to serve as a fourth outfielder in 2018.

Ezequiel Carrera reached base twice and added a steal Friday versus the Yankees.

Carrera broke up Masahiro Tanaka's perfect game with an infield single with two outs in the fifth inning and then stole second base. He also walked, as he was the only Blue Jay to reach base twice in this one. Carrera is sporting a nice .284/.357/.411 on the season.

Blue Jays activated OF Ezequiel Carrera from the 10-day disabled list.

Amazingly, Carrera only ended up missing a little under two weeks with his right foot fracture. He returns to a .297/.366/.412 batting line.

Blue Jays placed OF Ezequiel Carrera on the 10-day disabled list with a right foot fracture.

Carrera apparently suffered the injury at the tail end of Tuesday night's loss to the Rays. He went 2-for-4 with an RBI in the game, lifting his season slash line to .297/.366/.412. Toronto could be without the versatile 30-year-old outfielder for a couple of months.

Ezequiel Carrera went 2-for-4 and plated the Blue Jays' lone run in Tuesday's loss to the Rays.

Carrera delivered a run-scoring single in the seventh inning to get the Rays on the board, but it only pulled them to within six runs at 7-1. With his two-hit night, the speedy outfielder is hitting .297/.366/.412 with five homers, 15 RBI and three stolen bases.

Ezequiel Carrera hit his fourth home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Yankees.

Carrera went deep off Yankees reliever Chad Green in the bottom of the eighth inning for a solo shot. It was his only hit in three at-bats. Carrera's line is fine -- .290/.340/.400 -- but there's not much to it; he's got just 13 RBI and 16 runs scored in 46 games played. He's best left for deeper AL-only leagues.

Ezequiel Carrera went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Indians on Wednesday.

His two-run shot in the fourth inning tied the game at seven apiece -- a score that held until Carrera scored the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. Carrera has a .313 batting average with three home runs and 10 RBI in 88 plate appearances.
Wed, May 10, 2017 11:45:00 PM

Ezequiel Carrera smashed a pinch-hit, two-run homer in Tuesday's loss to the Red Sox.

Steve Pearce drew the start in left field, but it was Carrera who pulled the Blue Jays to within one run in the ninth inning with a dinger off of Matt Barnes. Devon Travis then lined out to end it. Carrera (.280/.280/.440) has outplayed Pearce (.162/.205/.162) in the battle for at-bats in left field, although neither are ripping the cover off the ball.
Tue, Apr 18, 2017 11:29:00 PM

Ezequiel Carrera (ankle) will be available off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

Steve Pearce will be starting in left field in place of Carrera. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward, but given that he could come in at some point during Wednesday's game, this injury does not look likely to linger.
