Date:

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.

Ezequiel Carrera has won the fourth outfielder job with the Blue Jays.

He beat out Junior Lake, Darrell Ceciliani, and Domonic Brown for the gig. Carrera is batting just .154 (4-for-26) this spring, but he's out of options and proved useful last season with a .273/.321/.372 batting line over 91 games. He provides speed and can play all three outfield positions.
Mar 30 - 8:26 AM

Ezequiel Carrera hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Blue Jays a 3-1 win over the Mets on Wednesday.

Carrera had been 2-for-19 this spring before the homer off Buddy Carlyle. He's battling with Junior Lake, Dominic Brown and Darrell Ceciliani to become the Jays' fourth outfielder. Only Ceciliani is having a strong spring, and he was thought to be at a big disadvantage coming in because he has options remaining and Carrera and Lake don't. Brown, who has a .646 OPS and can't play center field, is also a long shot.
Mar 23 - 4:41 PM

Ezequiel Carrera tripled and stole a couple of bases as a Blue Jays split-squad beat Team Canada 11-0 on Thursday.

Canadians Russell Martin and Michael Saunders made cameos in this one, though neither played the field. The roster was primarily comprised mostly of minor leaguers, including the four pitchers who combined on a one-hit shutout with 14 strikeouts. Carrera, who could make the Jays as a fourth outfielder, is just 1-for-15 in official spring action this season.
Mar 17 - 3:41 PM

Ezequiel Carrera went 1-for-4 with a two-run double and two strikeouts in Thursday afternoon's loss to the Orioles.

Carrera hit a ground rule double to drive in two runs in the seventh inning. At the time, it drew the Jays to within 6-4. They would be unable to complete the comeback, though, eventually falling by that score. Over the course of 170 at-bats this season, the 28-year-old outfielder is hitting .276/.324/.376 with three homers and 26 RBI.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of OF Ezequiel Carrera from Triple-A Buffalo.

Carrera was designated for assignment by the Jays earlier this month, but he elected to remain with the organization and is now getting another shot in the show. The 28-year-old is a .279/.327/.374 career hitter in MLB. He probably won't see many starts.

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

Carrera was designated for assignment by the Jays on Saturday and passed through waivers unclaimed. The 28-year-old outfielder is a .259/.311/.349 career hitter.

Blue Jays designated OF Ezequiel Carrera for assignment.

The 28-year-old outfielder had done a nice job in limited time for the Jays, hitting .279/.327/.374 with three homers and 21 RBI in 70 games. He could attract some interest on waivers.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of OF Ezequiel Carrera from Triple-A Buffalo.

With Dalton Pompey heading to Triple-A to refine his offensive game, Carrera could have a shot at fairly regular playing time in the Jays outfield. The 27-year-old was off to a tremendous start at the dish in the minor leagues, hitting .333/.419/.413 with six stolen bases in 20 games.

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.
Thu, Mar 26, 2015 08:50:00 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.

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.
Wed, Dec 3, 2014 02:33:00 PM

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.
Tue, Nov 25, 2014 02:08:00 PM

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.
