The Indians have claimed 25-year old lefty swinging outfielder Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from the Phillies. Carrera played in 13 games for the Phillies earlier this year and he was 1 for 13 (.077 avg, .327 OPS) with 2 runs scored. Carrera played in 116 games in 2011 and 2012 for the Indians and he was 89 for 349 (.255 avg, .653 OPS) with 47 runs scored, 2 homers, 25 RBIs and 18 stolen bases. He will serve as a backup outfielder for the Tribe.
UPDATE: (5/6/2013) – The Indians have designated Ezequiel Carrera for assignment for the second time in 2013. He played in 2 games for the Indians this time around and he was 2 for 4 (.500 avg, 1.000 OPS) with 1 run scored and 1 RBI.
UPDATE II: (5/7/2013) – Carrera somehow cleared waivers and he has been outrighted to AAA by the Tribe.
