Phillies claim Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from Indians

5 Comments

Last week the Indians designated Ezequiel Carrera for assignment and today the Phillies claimed the 25-year-old outfielder off waivers.

Carrera hasn’t hit much in the majors so far, but he’s a center fielder with very good speed and has shown some decent on-base skills in the minors. He’ll be a backup outfielder for the Phillies, who designated Rule 5 pick Ender Inciarte for assignment to make room for Carrera on the 40-man roster.

Assuming that no other teams claim Inciarte off waivers the Diamondbacks will probably take him back.
