Indians rumors: Cleveland could trade Ezequiel Carrera

The Cleveland Indians could trade outfielder Ezequiel Carrera, who’s out of minor league options, this spring, according to Jordan Bastian of

Carrera is currently competing for a roster spot as a fourth outfielder for the Indians. The team already projects a starting unit of Michael Brantley, Michael Bourn and Drew Stubbs, with Nick Swisher shifting to first base.

Carrera faces competition for a reserve spot from several players, including Ryan Raburn, Ben Francisco, Yan Gomes, Chris McGuiness and Jeremy Hermida.

The 25-year-old is out of options, meaning he can’t be sent down to the minors again without first being exposed to waivers. For this reason, Cleveland may attempt to trade him in order to get something in return if they don’t view him as a bench candidate.

Carrera appeared in 48 games for the Indians last season, hitting .272/.312/.395 with six doubles, three triples and two home runs over 158 plate appearances. He owns a career batting like of .255/.306/.347 over parts of two seasons in the majors.
