Ezequiel Carrera smacked a pinch-hit, go-ahead solo home run in Monday's victory over the Rays.

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons elected to pinch-hit Carrera for Darwin Barney to lead off the eighth inning and Carrera made his skipper look smart by cranking one over the wall in left field. It was Carrera's fifth dinger on the season. Jose Bautista also hit a two-run shot for the Jays.
Sep 12 - 9:38 PM

Blue Jays activated OF Ezequiel Carrera from the 15-day disabled list.

Carrera has been out since the end of July due to a nagging issue with his left Achilles, but he's feeling better now and should see plenty of playing time until Jose Bautista and Kevin Pillar are ready to return. The 29-year-old is batting .258/.346/.368 with four homers and five steals over 75 games this season.
Aug 16 - 2:56 PM

Ezequiel Carrera (heel) could be activated during this week's series against the Yankees.

Carrera, who has been out all month with lingering soreness in his left Achilles, is 1-for-9 through three minor league rehab games with Triple-A Buffalo and will play a fourth one on Monday. He's eligible to return on Tuesday and it sounds like he could be ready to go at that time. He should see regular at-bats with Kevin Pillar and Jose Bautista both sidelined.
Aug 15 - 7:41 PM

Ezequiel Carrera (heel) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment Friday with Triple-A Buffalo.

Carrera is eligible to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday (August 16) and could be ready to rock then. He's been out since August 1 because of a sore left Achilles. There is playing time available to the 29-year-old outfielder in Toronto with Jose Bautista (knee) landing on the disabled list Wednesday.
Aug 11 - 1:41 PM

Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said that Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) will likely need at-bats with Triple-A Buffalo before he joins the team.

Carrera is eligible to return from the disabled list on Tuesday, but that doesn't necessarily mean that he will return to the Jays immediately. Even if he doesn't rejoin the big league club when immediately eligible, the outfielder's recovery from a sore Achilles suffered in June comes at a rather convenient time for the Blue Jays, as Jose Bautista was just placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a knee injury. Carrera will provide them another option once he is ready to roll.
Aug 10 - 7:32 PM

Blue Jays placed OF Ezequiel Carrera on the 15-day disabled list with a left Achilles strain.

Carrera has been bothered by the issue for a while and will now get some extended rest. The Blue Jays recently acquired Melvin Upton from the Padres, so they should be fine in the outfield.
Aug 1 - 7:06 PM

Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) went 0-for-5 at the plate in his return to the lineup Saturday.

Carrera missed a few days of action with a sore Achilles. With Jose Bautista (toe) due back Monday, Carrera's time in the starting lineup is about to come to an end.
Jul 24 - 8:47 AM

Ezequiel Carrera is sitting out Wednesday due to a recurrence of Achilles discomfort.

Carrera first began having problems with the Achilles in late June. We'll call him day-to-day for now. Darwin Barney is starting in left field and Junior Lake is starting in right field Wednesday in Arizona.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Carrera out of the lineup, it'll be Darwin Barney leading off against Patrick Corbin with Devon Travis hitting in the 8th spot. Barney's numbers certainly don't jump off the table, but hitting atop of a very potent Toronto order in a hitter-friendly environment makes him a viable punt play. Corbin has allowed a .399 wOBA and a 2.54 HR/9 rate when facing RH bats at home.
Jul 20 - 1:58 PM

Ezequiel Carrera (Achilles) went 1-for-5 with a single and a strikeout in his return to the lineup Friday versus the White Sox.

Carrera sat out Wednesday's game because of a sore Achilles, but he was back in the leadoff spot Friday night. He should continue to see plenty of playing time with Jose Bautista (toe) sidelined.
Jun 25 - 8:25 AM

Ezequiel Carrera is out Wednesday because of a sore Achilles.

Darrell Ceciliani will start in right field and bat ninth versus Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray. Carrera is considered day-to-day. He's been filling in as Toronto's primary right fielder with Jose Bautista on the disabled list because of turf toe.
Jun 22 - 1:40 PM

Ezequiel Carrera is out of the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday versus the Diamondbacks.

Carrera is serving as the Jays' primary right fielder with Jose Bautista battling turf toe, but Darrell Ceciliani gets the nod Wednesday versus Diamondbacks left-hander Robbie Ray. Ceciliani is hitting ninth.
Jun 22 - 1:00 PM

Ezequiel Carrera went 2-for-3 with an RBI single and a run scored Thursday against the Rangers.

Drawing an increasingly rare start, Carrera notched two of the team's 15 hits on the night. Unlike some of his past starts, he batted at the bottom of the Jays' lineup, not the top. He's hit when in the lineup -- wherever that is -- batting .359/.405/.487 through 39 at-bats.
May 5 - 10:10 PM

Ezequiel Carrera singled and smacked a solo homer in Sunday's win over the Athletics.

He also drew a walk, reaching base in three of his five trips to the plate. The Jays have been without Michael Saunders (hamstring) for the entire weekend, but they haven't missed him with Carrera picking up seven hits over 14 at-bats. Carrera will head back to the bench when Saunders is ready.
Apr 24 - 4:03 PM

Ezequiel Carrera is starting in left field and hitting eighth Wednesday against the Rays.

Michael Saunders and Ryan Goins will get the day off versus Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore. Darwin Barney is starting at second base for Goins and batting ninth.
