The Phillies claimed outfielder Ezequiel Carrera off waivers from the Cleveland Indians. He replaces Ender Inciarte as the team's 5th outfielder. Inciarte was a Rule 5 pick out of the Diamondbacks organization, so it's doubtful he remains Phillies property.
Carrera is an upgrade as 25th man on the roster. The 25 year old bats left-handed, has tremendous speed, and has played above Single-A (Inciarte hasn't). Over the past 2 seasons donning Chief Wahoo, E-Z (that's his nickname now) has hit .255/.653 in 116 games with 47 R, 89 H, 14 DBL, 6 TRPL, 2 HR, 25 RBI, and 18 SB. In 8 minor league seasons, he hit .291/.748 with 40 triples and 187 stolen bases. He is capable of playing every outfield position.
