Blue Jays reassigned OF Ezequiel Carrera to minor league camp.

Carrera only had an outside shot at an Opening Day roster spot and managed just two hits in 38 plate appearances this spring. He'll be organizational outfield depth.
Mar 26 - 8:50 AM

Ezequiel Carrera, who had been 0-for-28 this spring, went 2-for-2 with a triple and two walks as the Blue Jays' center fielder on Friday.

It's too little, too late for Carrera, but at least he's no longer 0-for-28. His chances of making the Jays are really slim with Dalton Pompey playing well and Michael Saunders now a possibility for the Opening Day roster.
Mar 20 - 5:24 PM

Blue Jays signed CF Ezequiel Carrera to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training.

The Tigers designated Carrera for assignment in late November. In 45 games for Detroit last season, he batted .261/.301/.348. The 27-year-old will serve as outfield depth for the Blue Jays.

Ezequiel Carrera has elected to become a free agent.

Carrera was designated for assignment last week. The 27-year-old batted .261/.301/.348 in 45 games with the Tigers this season and should latch on elsewhere as a backup outfielder.

Tigers designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

Carrera batted just .261/.301/.348 in 45 games this past season for the Tigers, but he has good speed and can play all over the outfield, so the 27-year-old should draw interest from other teams on waivers.

Ezequiel Carrera doubled and made a terrific catch in center field Monday in his first start for the Tigers.

With Austin Jackson gone, Carrera is the Tigers' best option as a center fielder against right-handers, mostly because he's clearly better than Rajai Davis defensively. His bat leaves a lot to be desired, but he can hit singles and draw walks. The Tigers will probably play Davis more than Carrera for now, but it should shake out differently in the end, assuming that they don't just acquire a starting center fielder this month.

Tigers purchased the contract of OF Ezequiel Carrera from Triple-A Toledo.

Carrera is expected to receive the bulk of the starts in center field against right-handed pitching following the trade of Austin Jackson. It doesn't figure to be a strict platoon, as Rajai Davis will play more than just versus lefties. Carrera is a career .251/.306/.339 hitter over parts of five seasons in the majors but has had a big year at Toledo, batting .307/.387/.422 with six homers, 41 RBI and 43 stolen bases. He's worth a look for those in need of some speed.

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

Carrera struggled mightily last year in the major leagues and wasn't much better at the Triple-A level, batting .248/.312/.346 in 105 games for the Indians' International League affiliate. He'll be depth for Detroit.

Indians sent OF Ezequiel Carrera outright to Triple-A Columbus.

Carrera cleared waivers after being designated for assignment over the weekend. The 25-year-old will serve as outfield depth at the Triple-A level.

Indians designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

Carrera had just returned to the organization when he was claimed off waivers on Thursday. It's possible he'll pass through this time and be assigned to Triple-A Columbus.

Indians claimed OF Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from the Phillies.

Carrera, of course, spent the last two and a half seasons with the Tribe before they designated him for assignment at the end of spring training. The speedster will provide outfield depth.
Thu, May 2, 2013 06:07:00 PM

Phillies designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

The move clears a spot for Delmon Young on the active roster. Carrera, who was claimed off waivers from the Indians, went 1-for-13 with two runs scored in 13 games with the Phillies. He could draw interest somewhere as a potential reserve outfielder.

Phillies claimed OF Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from the Indians.

Rule 5 pick Ender Inciarte was designated for assignment in a corresponding roster move. Carrera owns an underwhelming .255/.306/.347 batting line over 384 plate appearances in the majors, but he has speed and is capable of playing all three outfield positions. He should be a useful bench player for Charlie Manuel.

Indians designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

The move clears room on the 40-man roster for Jason Giambi. Carrera owns an underwhelming .255/.306/.347 batting line over 384 plate appearances in the majors, but he has speed and is capable of playing all three outfield positions. It's possible he'll draw interest on waivers.
